Closing the Gap

Relationships are seldom—if ever—static. They ebb and flow as the people involved change and grow. At times people are close; at times, they drift apart. "Closing the Gap" offers some ideas of how to return to closeness when people have drifted.

Lyrics
Closing the Gap
I used to feel so close to you, and you were good for me.
You made me want to be the very best that I could be.
Somehow you always lifted me and made me feel secure.
That you would always be there as my friend, I was sure,
But lately we have drifted. No longer are you there.
What happened to the closeness that we once shared?
Instead of feeling like a queen whenever I'm with you,
I feel more like a nag, a hag, and iceberg, or a shrew.

I can't be playful when I feel like a nag,
And I can't be loving when I feel like a hag.
I can't be gentle when I feel like a shrew,
And I can't get close 
When I feel so distant from you,
So hold me close in tender yet firm embrace.
Treat me like I'm something precious to you.
Help me feel that you really cherish me,
And if you do, I'll be anything for you.

I always feel so lonely now. I miss my bosom friend.
I miss the closeness we once shared I thought would never end.
Now whether you have drifted off, or both of us, or I,
It doesn't really matter, just as long as we both try
To close the gap between us that keeps us far apart;
That makes us feel like strangers; the wounds our hearts,
So talk to me and tell me of the way you feel inside.
It's better to be open that our feelings always hide.

'Cause I can't be playful when I feel like a nag,
And I can't be loving when I feel like a hag.
I can't be gentle when I feel like a shrew,
And I can't get close 
When I feel so distant from you,
So hold me close in tender yet firm embrace.
Treat me like I'm something precious to you.
Help me feel that you really cherish me,
And if you do, I'll be anything for you.

If you hold me close and cherish me and let me be your friend,
I will willingly stick by your side to the end!
