Almost (FOWC)

I almost met you
That night in July
When the fireworks were burstin’
High in the night sky

Almost is not enough

I almost touched you
That day at the office
When you made me some copies
You were just so nice

Almost is not enough

I almost kissed you
That day on the elevator
When we talked about the weather
With a cop and a skater

Almost is not enough

I almost loved you
That day on our first date
When you talked about the future
But your heart was full of hate

Almost was close enough…
To something so wrong
