Closer to Me Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You can leave this house, leave this town
Leave it all to me or you'll never leave the ground
Look at that tiny screen's too small for you
I think you should learn to dream just like the dreamers do

What can you do with a day?
What will you wake up and see?
The farther you get
The closer to me

Am I the habit you're too tired to break?
I want you to love me with every step you take

What can you do with a day?
What will you wake up and see?
The farther you get
The closer to me

Taj Mahal, Cameroon, back in time, to the moon
Frozen lake, cypress trees, Florida's missing keys
El Dorado, Spain or bust Eiffel Tower, Paris
Just find your way in

You can leave this house, leave this town
All that's left to chart
Is nothing less than your own heart

What can you do with a day?
What will you wake up and see?
The farther you get
The closer to me

Down the river, down the road, Little Rock, Tokyo
Dusty trail, Flagstaff, in a faded photograph
Thunderstorm, Golden Sands, Cape of Horn, Pakistan
Suriname, Highway One, Chinatown, smoking gun

Golden Gate, Baltic Sea, Painted Desert, Laramie
Taj Mahal, Cameroon, back in time, to the moon
Frozen lake, cypress trees, Florida's missing keys
El Dorado, Spain or bust, Eiffel Tower, Paris
Just find your way in
