Closer Than I’ll Ever Be Again

Sometimes we were lovers
The nights would never end
Other times we wondered
Where the magic went
So close to going under
Closer than I’ll ever be again

Thought I must be dreamin’
And I wondered what it meant
I woke up south of Eden
Lost without a friend
Between true love and freedom
Closer than I’ll ever be again

If you’ll hold me tight
And turn out all the lights
Then maybe we could just pretend

We didn’t fall apart
God bless our broken hearts
Hallelujah and amen

You’re the best there’s ever been
Closer than I’ll ever be again

Drew you in a picture
In yellows blues and reds
Prayed you’ll reconsider
Or that I could just forget
Gentle as a whisper
Closer than I’ll ever be again
