"So Close" is a romantic love song featured in the film, Enchanted. The music was composed by Alan Menken and lyrics written by Stephen Schwartz. Performed by Jon McLaughlin, the song was released on November 20, 2007 in the United States as part of the soundtrack for Enchanted.

In the film, singer Jon McLaughlin performs the song as a band vocalist in the ballroom sequence where Giselle (Amy Adams) and Robert (Patrick Dempsey) dance the King's and Queen's waltz.

The song reflects both Robert's and Giselle's equally strong, mutual romantic feelings for each other as they dance and realize they are deeply falling romantically in love. Visual aspects of the sequence mirrors Belle and the Beast's romantic dance in Beauty and the Beast to the title song.

The song has been featured prominently in the climax of the Disney California Adventure nighttime show "World of Color".

The song is also quoted in the score of Disenchanted during the bit of the prologue where Kip and Skip tell the story of how Giselle fell in love with Robert.


You’re in my arms
And all the world is calm
The music playing on for only two
So close together

And when I’m with you
So close to feeling alive

A life goes by
Romantic dreams must die
So I bid mine goodbye
And never knew
So close was waiting
Waiting here with you
And now, forever, I know
All that I wanted to hold you
So close

So close to reaching
That famous happy end
Almost believing
This one's not pretend
Now you’re beside me
And look how far we’ve come
So far
We are
So close...

Oh, how could I face the faceless days
If I should lose you now?

We’re so close to reaching
That famous happy end
Almost believin'
This one's not pretend
Let’s go on dreamin'
Though we know we are
So close
So close, and still
So far...
