Song For You // Tell me Your story, I'll write you a Song

/ ------------------------------------------------------------ /
"Closer" is the first song in my 2012 "Song For You" series. Inspired by Maddy Rushing's story of two kismet lover's meeting, it explores what transpires in the moment a spark ignites between two lovers.

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

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


So stay close
Keep our tempo in line
Don't let it drop this time
I've been waiting for a lifetime
