Brett Dennen - Closer To You

rate me

Well I’ve tasted love so sweet

Played around but not for keeps

I never been knocked off my feet

Till you came along

In the room surrounding me

Are angels I cannot see

I know they come to carry me to

Where I belong

Closer to you, closer to you

I’m singing like a sailor strutting up your avenue

Like a clown in a costume shop

With a pocket full of jewels

All the knocks upon your door

Footsteps fallen on your floor

All the shipwrecks on your shore

Mean nothing to me

All the crooks on Capitol Hill

Criminals on the dollar bills

All the money on Wall Street still

Couldn’t keep me from getting

Closer to you. Closer to you

Like a priest on a pulpit preaching to an empty room

Like a drunk in a dive bar in the early afternoon

Closer to you.

Poets could not pronounce your name

Gamblers couldn’t play the game

Matchstick statues set to flame

Couldn’t hold a candle to you

Swindlers on the Sunset strip

Hypnotists and hypocrites

Ventriloquists and Pickpockets

Wish that they could get

Well I’ve tasted love so sweet

Played around but not for keeps

I never been knocked off my feet till you came along

I sit through the trickery

The jealousy and vanity

The potency of your prophesy

Because I long to be

Closer to you. Closer to you

Like a hound dog in a junkyard honey

I’m howling at the moon

Like a Pirate in a pawnshop with a pocket full of jewels

Closer to you (x3)

I’ll get through

Oh baby I’ll get through

Closer to you
