In the very famous song called "Chiisana Koi no Uta - 小さな恋のうた", there's a sentence:
ほら あなたにとって大事な人ほど すぐそばにいるの
what does "ほど" mean here? I've tried to search, here're some results I've got:
- Look, the person who is that valuable to you is right beside you.(All sentence's translation)
- 大事なひとほど : the degree to which a person is important (?) / as valuable as a person (such?)
- ほど : degree, extent /to do smth as well as x (x ほど)
They make no sense to me. Anyone give help?
