Lyrics

Closer

I hit the road knowing I was headed far
It took me in a circle and then I was back where I had started
I didn’t worry because I had the next day
To find the way home
Oh, my way home

I found myself at the top of a great hill
The run was icy and I crashed before the bottom swell
Dust off my jacket and go down another time
Like a child would, like a child would

CHORUS: Hold me closer
Feel me shake and quail
Tell me I’ve got tomorrow
Oh tomorrow

There was a time I ran into an old lover/hater
He took to me like I was a mother instigator
I crossed my heart and I told him to be brave
And find his way out,
Oh the way out

CHORUS: Hold me closer
Feel me shake and quail
Tell me I’ve got tomorrow
Oh tomorrow

BRIDGE: I have got no good reason to disbelieve what you are saying
But still, I’m always right
And in the midst of our obstacles colliding
I find myself begin to lose this fight
Oh, lover mine: have we really gone this far?
It feels like we are just circling back
Pretending to be heroes, saving all that’s good
When underneath we’re all about to crack
Oh sweet deception – take me back!

Butterflying in the knick of the air
Take another breath, you will always be so unaware
Hold close your reins and saddle, say your last goodbyes
To the old world
Like a child would

CHORUS: Hold me closer
Feel me shake and quail
Tell me I can wait ‘til tomorrow
Oh tomorrow
