Close To You

lyrics

Close to You

Sometimes, I wear feathers to feel close to the sky
When I turn off the lights I am part of the night
I’ve been layin’ next to you just to see if it feels right

I want to be close to you, but you’re miles away

Spent all my money to see how it feels to be poor
Been wracking my brain trying to read this water-stained score.
When am I gonna learn it ain’t about me…
It’s about You

I want to be close to you, but you’re miles away

I picked up a shovel to feel close to the earth
I’ve been running round in circles to find my way
There must be something I can do
To make things better

I want to be close to you, but you’re miles away
