can’t get close enough lyrics – black sabbath

how many tears
must we cry before learning?
things that we have
they’re for real and we’re losing

can’t get close enough to you
’cause you’re just too far away

why do you believe
that we’ve got something coming?
you took it all, left me
standing here with nothing

can’t get close enough to you
’cause you’re just too far away
too far away, too far away

in your world you must be dreaming
if you think you can survive
taking all and giving nothing that’s a crime

what makes you something special?
what about me, i’m here too?
you don’t care what i’m feeling and that’s the truth

can’t get close enough to you
’cause you’re just too far away

all i need is understanding
and the right to survive
only you could see the warnings
and p*ss them by

what makes you something special?
what about me, well, i’m here too?
you don’t care what i’m feeling and that’s the truth

can’t get close enough to you
’cause you’re just too far away, too far away
can’t get close enough to you
’cause you’re just too far away

how many tears
must we cry before learning?
things that we had
they’re for real and we’re losing

can’t get close enough to you
’cause you’re just too far away
too far away, too far away, yeah, too far away
