Mike Mangione Lyrics - Closer

Closer

There and Back

I'm leaving this town
There ain't much behind me
Except my name and those I spoke it to
With the lights all around
I leave back through the alley
Past the filth and mistakes I shouldn't do

Oh no, with the twilight comes the night
It's easier to do in the dark
What's not right in the light
But I need something closer
So much closer to me

With the cars going by
My head up high hands to my side
There's no need for a taxi
They wouldn't know where to go
Past the whores and the trade
The drunks and the smack grenades
You can hear salvation's whisper
Drowning death on the latest show

Oh now with the twilight comes the night
It's easier to do in the dark
What's not right in the light
But I need something closer
Yeah so much closer to me

I need something closer tom
Wrap me up and take me home tonight
Sleeping eyes can't see
I'm bruised by the things in front of me
Set me up on my knees tonight

Here's my gift from me to you

The midnight calls my name
I catch it with the AM train
To keep form going insane
So I'm leaving this town
And there's so much behind me
With the day, a chance to redeem my name

With the twilight comes the night
It's easier to do in the dark
What's not right in the light
But I need something closer
So much closer to me
