And the morning light was breaking
Slowly moving across the bed
He gets up without her waking
To the voices in his head

Through the shadows in the hallway
To the room they painted blue
And on the inside he is frightened
At a loss for what to do

Until he opens up his eyes
And the angels all look down

Even closer than this life, closer than your faith
Closer than the things that you hold dearly and in vain
Closer than this life, falling through again
Giving more than anything that you could hope to win

And he knows his life is changing
It's never easy letting go
For the first time you are mortal
As the child before you grows

And he wonders at the sight
Of the joy that they have found

Even closer than this life, closer than your faith
Closer than the things that you hold dearly and in vain
Closer than this life, falling through again
Giving more than anything that you could hope to win

And what would you intend to find?
Solitude? Your peace of mind?
Holding out for something less
Than touching the hand of God?

Even closer than this life, closer than this faith
Closer than the things that you hold dearly and in vain
Closer than this life, falling through again
Giving more than anything that you could hope to win

Closer than this life, closer finally
Living for the only thing
You ever made complete, oh, for the one thing
That you both did perfectly
