Wallflowers, The - Closer To You Lyrics




How soft a whisper can get
When you're walking through a crowded space
I hear every word being said
And I remember that everyday
I get a little bit closer to you

How long an hour can take
When you're staring into open space
When I feel I'm slipping further away
I remember that everyday
I get a little bit closer to you

These are the days
That I won't get back
I won't hear you cry
Or hear you laugh
But when it's quiet
And I don't hear a thing
Well I can always hear you breathe

You know there's nowhere else
I've wanted to be
Than be there when you needed me
I'm sorry too
But don't give up on me
And just remember that when you were asleep
I got a little bit closer to you

Wallflowers, The Closer To You Comments
  1. hellos

    How soft a whisper can get
    When you're walking through a crowded space
    I hear every word being said
    I remember that everyday
    I get a little bit closer to you, you

    How long an hour can take
    When you're staring into open space
    When I feel I'm slipping further away
    Where I remember that everyday
    I get a little bit closer to you, you, to you, you

    These are the days that I won't get back
    I won't hear you cry or hear you laugh
    But when it's quiet and I don't hear a thing
    Well I can always hear you breathe

    You know there's nowhere else I've wanted to be
    Than be there when you needed me
    I'm sorry too but don't give up on me
    And just remember that when you were asleep
    I got a little bit closer to you, you, to you, you

    You know there's nowhere else I've wanted to be
    Than be there when you needed me
    I'm sorry too but don't give up on me
    And just remember that when you were asleep
    I got a little bit closer to you

  2. Patricia Tho

    Beautiful song..

  3. Taimur Arif

    Listening this while I wait for my soul mate

  4. wildmercuryfilms

    I miss the year 2002

  5. Early Beloved

    Jakob, eyes of heaven, voice of velvet, palate of honey, adorable man of warm soul and Edenic heart. Your father is only a pale shadow compared to you.

    fitz nonpareil

    Early Beloved :) how unique and beautiful your sentiment remains. cool, if he saw it ...

  6. wildmercuryfilms

    This is what the year 2000 sounded like. I was 29, so it the end of my 20’s & the beginning of something else

    Bryan Owens

    wildmercuryfilms yeah bro I’m right there with you. I was in grad school in New Orleans at the time and I wore out this CD. Great great pre-Katrina memories.

  7. GreaterGood510

    Their best song

  8. Island Roena

    Jakob Dylan is painfully beautiful his wife is so lucky

    Rose Cruz

    Jakob Dylan's wife's name is Paige Dylan and that she's Bob Dylan's daughter-in-law and I don't mind at all that he's married

  9. starkid77

    This is one of the best songs I ever woke up and heard, and I never forgot it. The one I love has to know this song and love it too, top 3 prerequisite.

  10. Dina Seddiek Gadalla

    Beautiful 🖤💕

  11. Callie Alvanitakis

    I struggled to find this song. I searched for years. I actually forgot about it for a couple years. I FOUND IT! I AM IN ACTUAL HEAVEN!

    demerit5

  17. tian shansky

    One of the most beautiful songs ever made by anyone!

  18. PenWriter21

    Damn, the Wallflowers just take me back to my youth. THIS is what you call MUSIC, not that 1D crap, but don't get me wrong. We had our fair share of bad music; backstreet boys and ..........never mind, ours was mostly great haha

  19. short one

    this song reminds me of my fiance, he lives 3 hours away. He's the love of my life, I'd give anything to be closer to him. What do you guys think of this as our wedding song?

    pncombies

    @short one It's a nice tune, go for it!

    joe smith

    +short one I think it's romantic and something different. Congrats and Best Wishes!

    Minion Man

    Just curious if ya'll got married or if the 3 hours was a bit too much to make it work.  Been there.  Lovely song.

  25. Buzz Buzzerson

    He co-wrote "Two Souls (Angelina)" with Faster Than Flash. You can hear the influence.

  26. Joel Lipton

  42. MusicalJuliet

    @C0LL1N bwahahahahahaha that's so, SO true but it made me laugh so hard lol

  43. C0LL1N

    @ktto11 because everyone would rather listen to: "ah whip mah hair back n forth ah whip mah hair back n forth." or any of the top 40 songs which are all about shawtys in da club, and how sexy da shawtys be lookin and how fly dey is.

  44. UrbanAquarius

    Someone put this song on myspace with a video for Owen Hart the wrestler who fell to his death 12 years ago. And it's just great. It's a sad beautiful song.

  45. LarrabeeLegend

    with the amount of people that watch these vids and post that the band is underrated, idk how they are still underrated!!!

    we should have a National Wallflowers Month......where we all buy every wallflowers song ever off of itunes lol and then petition Barack to give The Wallflowers 13 Billion dollars to fund them making life better for everyone in the world.

  46. Ana C Sanchez

    One of the best songs ever!

  47. Mike Johnston

    "Empire in My Mind" was used as the theme song to the Guardian.

  48. Zornitsa Atanasova

    I'm looking for the song of the Wallflowers used as a soundtrack for "The Cuardian" tv show. Can anyone tell what its name?

  49. goatz123

    @sh61288

  50. Ceraso36

    I cannot say, I will take it as my wedding song, but I can say, that this song will ever be in my mind

  51. 711grim
