Single of The Day: Mat Kearney - Closer To Love

Oleh: welly - 06 Sep 2009

PhotobucketMat Kearney sendiri kepada majalah Relevant menjelaskan kalau lagu ini berkisah tentang menghadapi berbagai kesulitan hidup yang keras atau bisa juga kehidupan yang keras yang kita lihat dijalani teman-teman kita, juga tentang bagaimana kita berkembang mengharapkan sesuatu yang sempurna seperti yang pernah kita lalui sebelumnya. Kearney memang bukan hanya mumpuni menciptakan lagu pop yang kupinggenic tapi juga lirik yang mendalam. Dengan warna suara Kearney yang khas, petikan gitar, dentingan piano serta gebukan drum yang dinamis, lagu ini langsung menjadi favorit dalam playlist saya. (Timmy / CreativeDisc Contributors)

Lirik:

She got the call today

One out of the gray

And when the smoke cleared

It took her breath away

She said she didn't believe

It could happen to me

I guess, we're all one phone call

From our knees

We're gonna get there soon

If every building falls

And all the stars fade

We'll still be singing this song

The one they can't take away

I'm gonna get there soon

She's gonna be there too

Crying in her room

Praying, lord, come through

We're gonna get there soon

Oh, it's your light

Oh, it's your way

Pull me out of the dark

Just to show me the way

Crying out now

From so far away

You pull me closer to love

Closer to love

Meet me once again

Down off lake michigan

Where we could feel the storm blowing

Down with the wind

And don't apologize

For all the tears you've cried

You've been way too strong

Now for all your life

I'm gonna get there soon

You're gonna be there too

Crying in your room

Praying lord come through

We're gonna get there soon

Oh, it's your light

Oh, it's your way

Pull me out of the dark

Just to show me the way

Crying out now

From so far away

You pull me closer to love

Closer to love

'cause you are all that i've waited for

All of my life

We're gonna get there

You are all that i've waited for

All of my life

You pull me closer to love

Closer to love

Pull me closer to love

You pull me closer to love

Closer to love, oh no

Closer to love, closer to love

Pull me closer to love
