"This Close, That Far" (這麼近那麼遠) is a Cantonese song sung by Joey Yung. The Jackie Cheung cover was the third plug off her fifth EP, Me, Re-Do. It became Joey's 22nd plug to get four number 1s in Hong Kong major media.

Development

On December 18, 2014, Joey posted a selfie of her in a studio on Instagram[1], asking netizens to guess which song she was recording.

One day before the song's release, Joey revealed the single artwork and the song title online[2]. She revealed the reason behind recording this classic hit was her growth in understanding love[3].

Joey's best friend Wyman Wong wrote this song in 1995 for Jackie Cheung. The song was rearranged by Alex Fung[4]. It was released in mid January finally.

The official music video was shot on February 11, 2015[5]. Swiftly two days later, director Richard Chong finished editing the video and released it[6]. Joey posted several pictures online on how excited she was while cooperating with Jackie Cheung[7][8].

Lyrics

一天一天 日日夜夜 面對面
既相處 也同眠
一點一點 逐漸逐漸 便發現
縱相對 卻無言

靜靜默默 望著熟悉的背面
一彎身影 原來離我多麼的遠
像天涯 那一端 沒法行 前一吋

我 留著你在身邊 心 仍然很遠
我想伸手拉近點 竟觸不到那邊
就欠一點點 但這一點點

觸摸得到 揣摩不到 這麼近
那麼遠 卻仍然
相宿相棲 不聲不響 我跟你
已改變 已無言

靜靜默默 望著陌生的背面
心中所想 原來離我多麼的遠
像天涯 那一端 沒法行 前一吋

我 留著你在身邊 心 仍然很遠
也許終於都有天 當你站在前面
但我分不出這張是誰的臉

我 留著你在身邊 心 仍然很遠
我想伸手拉近點 竟觸不到那邊
就欠一點點 但這一點點 卻很遠

我 留著你在身邊 心 仍然很遠
也許終於都有天 當你站在前面
但我分不出這張是誰的臉

我 留著你在身邊 心 仍然很遠
我想伸手拉近點 竟觸不到那邊
就欠一點點 但這一點點 卻很遠
