Time is a healer
But it cannot heal my heart
My mind says I've forgotten you
And then I feel my heart
The miles lie between us
But your fingers touch my own

Nearer
Than the wind is to the willow
Dearer
Than the rain is to the earth below
Precious as the sun to the things that grow

You're nearer
Than the ivy to the wall is
Nearer
Than the winter to the fall is
Leave me
But when you're away you'll know
You're nearer
For I love you so

You're nearer
For I love you so
