Close Enough For Love

This song is by Shirley Horn and appears on the album Close Enough For Love (1989).

You and I, an unmatched pair
Took the time to touch, to share
Worlds apart the night we met
We braved the odds and won the bet
Not perfect yet but close enough for love

How old fashioned, pure romance
Shared a kiss and shared a dance
Shared the body and bouquet
We'll taste the wine another day
When you and I are close enough for love

Not just lovers, more than friends
Who knows where one starts, one ends
Tracing lights through sleepless nights
That I'll remember always and always

Long goodbyes and tearful looks
Hold up well in poems and books
But you and I have life to hold
The greatest story never told
Not perfect yet but close enough for love

Not just lovers, more than friends
Who knows where one starts, one ends
Tracing lights through sleepless nights
That I'll remember always and always

Long goodbyes and tearful looks
Hold up well in poems and books
But you and I have life to hold
The greatest story never told
Not perfect yet but close enough for love, for love
