Closer To Believing Lyrics

Closer To Believing by Lake & Palmer Emerson  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Closer To Believing I am closer to believing
Than I ever was before
On the crest of this elation
Must I crash upon the shore
And with the driftwood of acquaintance
Light the fire to love once more
I am wind blown...i am times.

To be closer to believing
To be just a breath away
On the death of inspiration
I would buy back yesterday
But theres no crueller illusion
Theres no sharper coin to pay
As I reach out... it slips away

From the opium of custom
To the ledges of extremes
Dont believe it till youve held it
Life is seldom what it seems
But lay your heart upon the table
And in the shuffling of dreams
Remember who on earth you are

I need me
You need you
We want us

But of course you know I love you
Or what else am I here for
Only you not face to face
But side by side for evermore
And I need to be here with you
For without you what am i
Just another fool out searching
For some heaven in the sky
Take me closer to believing
Take me forward lead me on
Through collision and confusion
While theres life beneath the sun
You are the reason I continue
So near for so long
So close yet so far away

I need me
You need you
We want us to live forever
So dont let the curtain fall
Measure after measure
Of writing on the wall
That burns so brightly
It blinds us all

I need me
You need you
We want us to be together
On sundays in the rain
Closer than forever
Against or with the grain
To ride the storms of love again

So be closer to believing
Though your world is torn apart
For a moment changes all things
And to end is but to start
And if your journeys unrewarded
May your God lift up your heart
You are windblown
But you are mine
