So Close By Jon McLaughlin

I so love this song right now. It’s from the movie “Enchanted” and it’s been right under my nose for years.

Anyway, I just listened to the entire song the other night and wham! I felt it. I’ve been playing it on repeat for I don’t know how long. Some people use it for weddings but if you analyze the message underneath, it’s really a sad song about pretending/daydreaming and getting your hopes up then realizing you can’t afford to get your hopes up!

It has different meanings though. Listen to it thoroughly and tell me what you think. I can’t upload the song in my page for some reason, so here’s the next best thing to do (I think): Go to, type “So Close by Jon McLaughlin” in the SEARCH tab and there you go!

Warning: Not for the people who are “fainthearted” a.k.a. “those who don’t like mushy songs”. LOL.

So Close by Jon McLaughlin from the movie ENCHANTED (lyrics)

You’re in my arms
And all the world is calm
The music playing on
For only two
So close together
And when I’m with you
So close to feeling alive

A life goes by
Romantic dreams must die
So I bid mine goodbye
And never knew
So close was waiting
Waiting here with you
And now, forever, I know
All that I wanted to hold you
So close

So close to reaching
That famous happy end
Almost believing
This one’s not pretend
Now you’re beside me
And look how far we’ve come
So far
We are
So close

Oh, how could I face the faceless days
If I should lose you now?

We’re so close to reaching
That famous happy end
Almost believing
This *was not* pretend
Let’s go on dreaming
Though we know we are
So close
So close, and still
So far
