about

I’m a big fan of bands like Dokken, Vixen and Harem Scarem. When the original idea of this project came up, it was going to be a cross between all of those type of bands exclusively, and one of the first songs written for this project specifically (as opposed to reworked older material) was So Close (And Yet So Far).

This song was covered a while back by a Croatian all-girl band called Angels. They recorded two versions: an English one and a Croatian version entitled “Maska Nevjere”. They also covered the Dungeon cult classic song Slave Of Love and I did guest solo for them, which was pretty cool to do.

As usual, drums were handled by Tim “TY” Yatras, and I did everything else on this track.

lyrics

It’s just like any other day
I sit here waiting for your call
And hoping I hear your voice at all

And just like every other day
I see your face and sunlight fills my world
I only want to feel you close
And feel your arms around me but you’re turning away

Long ago we were one
So close, together
Golden days, oh where did they go?

So close and yet so far
I wanna touch you but you won’t let me start
So close and yet so far
I wanna love you but you’re breaking my heart in two…

Those days we had are far away
I hear your voice and all I feel is pain
Tears fall like the pouring rain

Still waiting for a sunny day
When all the pain was just a crazy dream
And hold you tightly in my arms
But I know deep inside me that you’re slipping away
