Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness - So Close Lyrics




We cross a country
In an airplane with the wings on fire
Hanging from the seatbelt sign
That's the one thing
There's no safety in desire
Preserving life is as good as dying

And these could be the best or darkest days
The lines we walk are paper thin
And we could pull this off or push away
Cause you me have always been

So close
So close to giving up
So close to going all the way
So close
So close to taking off
So close to going nowhere
So close
So close to giving up
So close to going all the way
So close
So close to taking off
So close to going nowhere, nowhere

Heard you whisper over the hum of an electric chair
To live like this could take its toll
But you're no stranger
To the height of almost getting there
Are we losing touch or taking hold

And these could be the best or darkest days
The lines we walk are paper thin
And we could pull this off or push away
Cause you me have always been

So close
So close to giving up
So close to going all the way
So close
So close to taking off
So close to going nowhere
So close
So close to giving up
So close to going all the way
So close
So close to taking off
So close to going nowhere, nowhere

I wanna go there
I wanna go there
I wanna go there
With you

So close
So close to giving up
So close to going all the way
We're so close
So close taking off
So close to going nowhere
So close
So close to giving up
So close to going all the way
So close
So close to taking off
So close to going nowhere
So close
So close to giving up
So close to going all the way
So close
So close to taking off
So close to going nowhere, nowhere
So close

    So close
    So close to giving up
    So close to going all the way (so close)
    So close
    So close to taking off
    So close to going nowhere (nowhere)
    So close
    So close to giving up
    So close to going all the way (so close)
    So close

  84. Samuel

    Andrew's release day facebook post:


    What have the artists said about the song?

    It’s no secret that I enjoy taking risks and “So Close” was forged in the middle of such a moment. It was penned after the first Wilderness tour when so much in my life felt like it was on the verge of something; Some great victory or defeat. It was hard at the time to tell which. There’s a nervousness that goes along with launching new projects and it creates an energy and excitement that bleeds into everything. Personal relationships, self confidence, sleep and dreams. For me, “So Close” is a snapshot of life’s uncertain moments. Moments where every breath and motion is charged with anxiety and hope, fear and fearlessness.

  85. D0nutLord

    I can't listen to this song the same way again. The movie theater I work at used to play this song all the time between showings, so whenever I cleaned a theater, it always played. And I mean... ALWAYS. Great song though haha

    DS Designs

    Dude same haha. This was like the only good song in the 5 song cycle at my old movies job.

  86. It's Darshan

    The Lyrics are so soothing, Thank you Andrew for reminding me things will be ok when everything is falling apart <3

  87. Chris Calton

    man I love this guy. his songs and videos are just cool.

  88. Amir Baum

    Sweet! I like it. Well done and creative! I heard this once on XM radio and think it's growing on me already.
