Bonnie Lynn Raitt (born November 8, 1949) is a renowned American blues singer-songwriter and slide guitar player. During the 1970s, Raitt released a series of acclaimed roots-influenced albums which incorporated elements of blues, rock, folk and country, but she is perhaps best known for her more commercially accessible recordings in the 1990s including "Nick of Time", "Something to Talk About", "Love Sneakin' Up on You", and the slow ballad "I Can't Make You Love Me". Raitt has received nine Grammy Awards in her career and is a lifelong political activist. more »

So far
There was not a second thought
No heart
Ever got close enough
You are
Watching as I am caught
In a moment off-guard

So close
I can nearly taste it
Suppose
This is that one promised love
God knows
All that I've wasted now
Never letting it start

Now all my resistance
I feel it slip away
Now all of the distance
Ever less with every day by day

So far
There was no connection
No spark
Out of which a fire grows
I start
In your direction I'm
Ever so close

Now all my resistance
I feel it slip away
Now all of the distance
Ever less with every day by day

So far, I have never been
So close
