Closer to Me

Closer to Me

Dar Williams

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 should 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, Surinam, 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.
