  • I loved her because she was there
    And I knew all along that it wasn't fair but I didn't care
    Then I got the hell out of there
    But that was a close one
    I keep my freedom intact
    Got rid of the hassle and rid of the flack
    Yeah I cut me some slack
    And I never thought I'd want it back but that was a close one
    That was a close one and if I hadn't run
    She might have got away with me heart so I played it smart
    That was a close one but I kept my cool never let down my guard
    That was a close one
    The winter of '79 so cold and lonely
    I found a good woman she took me inside
    And I swear to god I really tried
    And that was a close one
    Will there ever be a love of my life
    When I'm out of my prime and out of my mind
    In the nick of time and well the feeling in here is fine
    Just the close ones
    That was a close one and if I hadn't run
    She might have gotten away with me heart my precious heart
    That was a close one but I kept my cool never let down my guard
    That was a close one
    That was a close one I loved her because she was there that was a close one
    That was a close one winter of '79 that was close one
    That was a close she finally got away with my heart that was a close one
