Closer To You Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You would think I was born yesterday, the way I act sometimes
Like I'd never heard your good message, deaf, dumb and blind
Speak harsh to my children, impatient with my lover
And that man on the street, he cut me off in traffic
You should've heard me scream

And just when I think I've pushed it too far
Worried about the battle and blowing the war
That's when I hear your voice in my ear with

Love so simple, love so plain
Coming down on me like the rain
With sweet forgiveness no matter what I do
And it makes me want to get just a little bit closer to you

'Cause Lord, I carry these demons, temptation, ooh I've had my fun
But lately I've been thinking there's work to be done
I know how to be gentle, it's just that I forget
If someone makes me angry, someone's in a hurry
I can just let them just rush on by and take that deeper breath

Because this is the battle, yeah, this is the war
This is really worth fighting for
And I have no fear as long as you are near with

Love so simple, love so plain
Coming down on me like the rain
With sweet forgiveness no matter what I do
And it makes me want to get just a little bit closer to you

These things I say and do I wish that you did not see
I'm thanking you now for never giving up on me with

Love so simple, love so plain
Coming down on all of us like the rain
With sweet forgiveness no matter what we do
And it makes me want to get just a little bit closer to you, ooh, closer
