Horseshoes and Hand Grenades - Lyrics

I blew a kiss today
Then watched it blow away
I threw my caution to the wind
Wind died down
Caution's back again
On the verge of reaching over
Very nearly pulled you closer
But the inches felt like miles
Might as well be
Might as well be miles

Cus close only counts
In horseshoes and hand grenades
In a general direction
Ain't the place that love is made
Close is close but still too far
When the target is the heart
Close only counts
Close only counts
In horseshoes and hand grenades
Horseshoes and hand grenades

Love ain't a thing you bargain
Luck alone won't grow a garden
Throw a seed against the wall
And hope it sticks but if it falls
Close your eyes and pull the trigger
Hope to God this time you hit her
But you missed her by a mile
You miss that pretty
Miss that pretty smile

Cus close only counts
In horseshoes and hand grenades
In a general direction
Ain't the place that love is made
Close is close but still too far
When the target is the heart
Close only counts
Close only counts
In horseshoes
And hand grenades
Ohhh-ooh
Horseshoes
Hand grenades
Close only counts
In horseshoes and hand grenades
In a general direction
Ain't the place that love is made
Close is close but still too far
When the target is the heart
Close only counts
Close only counts
Close never counts
In love
