Close but No Cigar

This song is by Lost Dogs and appears on the album The Green Room Serenade, Part One (1996) and on the album The Green Room Serenade, Part Tour (2002).

Close but no cigar
I nearly won her heart
I got so close but then my whole world
Fell apart
I thought we were in love
We came so far
Now she's with someone else not me
Close but no cigar

Last night I kissed her lips
Just like before
But it was in her eyes
She wanted something more
I never said the words I love you
Almost had it all
But I dropped the ball
And she walked right out the door

Close but no cigar
I nearly won her heart
I got so close but then my whole world
Fell apart
I thought we were in love
We came so far
Now she's with someone else not me
Close but no cigar

I had to live without
What might have been
He made his play
Now she's with him
I'll bet he tells her that he loves her
Well heaven knows
That I came this close
But I won't have that chance again

Close but no cigar...
