There you are
Across the room
A couple of steps
Is all it takes
A couple of steps
I won't dare to make
For at the end
Who knows what waits
Mystery has never
Ended in happily ever after
For me
Are you my knight?
Then where is your steed?
Have you found a princess
More worthy than me?
A couple of steps
I stay away
Hoping for you
To come to me
But I know
A couple of steps
Is the closest
I'll ever be.
