Closer Than Anything



I wish you were liquid

So that way I could

Absorb you into my skin

Closer than anything


So I could wear you around all day

Like a layer of sunblock

Like I move and you move too

Closer than anything


Sheet spread cross the bed

Glass to the window

Concrete to the street

Closer than anything


Talking tattooed on my soul

Ink stamped on my sleeve

Buried deep but seen

Closer than anything


Hold me tighter than you have held a man

Like believing in being one again

Cause I've felt alive and I've felt alone

And here lately I've felt a bit of both


There's a world outside this place

It's crazy it's twisted

Resist it my lady

And steady on the reigns


Cause the train's at the station

And this brake man

Waits for no one

His eye like a raging sun

Is closer than anything to me


Hold me tighter than you have held a man

Like believing in being one again

Cause I've felt alive and I've felt alone

And here lately I've felt a bit of both


Sunlight splinters

Advancing and receding

Cross the carpet to the rhythm

Of the curtain in the wind


Yeah they move like we do

Thoughtless but together

Effortless like breathing in

Closer than anything


I wish you were liquid

So that way I could

Absorb you into my skin

Closer than anything
