Closer Than We Think
The Classic Crime Lyrics


What it gonna take for me?
I'm on my hands and knees, while all the poets fill pages of loose leaf
I feel cheap, and I feel empty
We will bathe in the sea of disbelief, but we will not go quickly.
No we will not die so easily
And I knew that this would happen, it always does
And I couldn't stop my reaction so I let it come,
I let it come

[Chorus]
I still hold the belief that we are free,
That we don't need the rules to see
That despite what we've done, we're not alone
We're closer than we think to home

It didn't take me long to believe that I could do anything,
We turn the songs up loud so we can sing
I am true and I am living
We will walk through the valley of the shadow of the boring and burn it all
No we will not go quietly

And I knew that this would happen, it always does
And I couldn't stop my reaction so I let it come,
I let it come

[Chorus]

Across the water you call me, but I'm not listening as I sink down
Water fills my lungs as I begin to drown
I knew that this would

[Chorus]

I was scrolling through the comments when I noticed people arguing about what this song is about. I think what alot of people seem to forget is that not everything is interpreted the same way. You can interpret this as a Christian song, and he/she can interpret as something else. That's the great thing about music. It means whatever it means to you despite whatever anyone else says.

i love this song! I love how it tells us that we are not alone and that God is with us. I love how it tells you that you dont have to pray and wroship how ppl tell you to. Its something between you and God and that it brings you closer to home
