You came close, close but no cigar
You didn't miss by far
You know you came this close, close but no cigar

Some people sing love songs, everybody's got one
This isn't my love song, it's more like my love gone wrong song
She came to breakfast and stayed a week
But the lie detectors broke down each time she tried to speak
Broke down when she said, "You came close, close but no cigar
You didn't miss by far
You know you came this close, close but no cigar
No matter where you are
You know you came this close, close but no cigar"

I remember, I remember, I remember the promise in your eyes
As black as the night I drove you to the airport
And I remember, I remember, I remember the wide Brazilian sky that swallowed you, but you...
Then I hit thirty, guess I can't complain
But I must have been lonely the night I bumped into Lorraine
She came for coffee and stayed all night
But the lie detectors broke down every time I tried to smile
Broke down like the story of my life
And each dream I missed by half a mile broke down when I told her
You came close, close but no cigar
You didn't miss by far
You know you came this close (Close), close but no cigar
No matter where you are
You know you came so close (So close), close but no cigar
You didn't miss by far
You know you came this close (Close), close but no cigar
We're better off by far
But you know we came this close, close but no cigar
