lyrics

closer to the fire that we started with
when we were younger and the fight wasn’t over yet
closer, I keep getting closer
the longer that it takes to get over it
the harder that it gets to uncover it
closer, keep getting closer

Now I would go back if I was capable
to that hotel we had a drink or two
live life
burn bright
words came out burning hot
a fire that we couldn't stop

Was there ever that flame or did I dream it up?
Did we burn it out or did we give it up?
The closer I get, the further it seems

closer to the fire that we started with
when we were younger and the fight wasn’t over yet
closer, keep getting closer
the longer that it takes to get over it
the harder that it gets to uncover it
closer, keep getting closer

we had it right in our hands and then it burned away
when you built a city out of closet space
State lines
midnights
down 89, 91 and 95

When the road hit the wheels we would do anything
to keep that getaway feeling burning through our veins
The closer I get, the further it seems

I get so afraid to just dig in the dark
I feel so alone down there in the well

I’m closer now
closer than I’ve ever been
I’ll light it up you see what you can do with it

I’m closer now
closer than I’ve ever been
Follow the fire maybe start it up again
