Closer 04:01
I've been walking in cirlces 'Round city squares That's where you found me So unprepared I was only watching For my next step Checking my directions For what's up ahead But it was 17th and Pine Where your deep brown eyes met mine What could I do But step to you CHORUS: I'm getting closer I feel the fire, the heat in your eyes Getting closer To ou Getting closer Heart's like a drum, we've only begun Getting closer To you, to you Your name and a question Hang in the air Your smile and some laughter Go and meet them there We're speaking a language We've never known And suddenly I cannot remember How it feels to be alone It was farewell much too soon Underneath that autumn moon What could I do But fall for you CHORUS So stay close Keep our tempo in line Don't let it drop this time I've been waiting for a lifetime CHORUS

Highs and Lows Standing up to the sound of choirs You're walking down the aisle To the hand of another man You pass me smiling like a child And though it burns my lungs I bite my tongue and give you the best I can Oh, never gonna let it show Oh, it's better that you never know such CHORUS: Highs and Lows Watching as two lovers grow But one love's blind Highs and Lows Waiting for those words to know That I ran out of time I Hear out loud the words avowed Wishing they were mine A one act Romeo Waiting for your last line Hallelujah, love is here And as I join the chapel's cheer I douse my fear with Holy wine Oh, never gonna let it show Oh, it's better that you never know such CHORUS I start to feel me breathing As I stop to watch you go I send up to the ceiling All the lives I'll never know I feel my heart is changing As I watch you driving by Come alive, come alive, come alive... Not how the stories supposed to go Highs and Lows No more waiting just to know It's time to come alive So bring me back to life
