So Close 04:18
Who am I, that I would push back? Is that the loving thing?  You made a bed for me to lie in; You know I’m trying. See, good men, they never look back, And that’s a salty sting. You paved a road for me to walk on, Yet I am not gone. I’m combing through the clover for a four-leaf,  Check my pockets over & over, hoping you’d be calling for me. I would take a maybe or a sure thing; Check my pockets over & over & over— It’s like I told you, baby. CHORUS: Not one thing that you said Was ever just a wasted breath; It’s living in, living in my head And making a home In places that you lit my hope. I’ve never been, never been so close. To move a man like a chess piece, (Play ‘em) That’s not the loving thing. (Not love) While I am bold enough to go there, It goes nowhere. (Nowhere) ‘Cause I wanna tell you when we next meet— (When we) I mean, God willing— (Can we?) That I prayed only for your profit, No matter what the cost to me is. Madison, she knows just how to hold me; She would let me stay here for longer, but she knows I’ve got to go free. She’s the kind of lover that my soul needs. Daylight’s getting lower & lower & lower… Wish I could show you, baby. CHORUS: Not one thing that you said Was ever just a wasted breath; It’s living in, living in my head And making a home In places that you lit my hope. I’ve never been, never been so close To coming correct. I know that you were heaven-sent; You’re living in, living in an Echelon of your own. Could anybody match your glow? I’ve never been so close. I’ve never been… So close When we… can we?

about

"So Close" is a grateful tribute to the one that got away. Laid-back & vocal-heavy, it leans heavily into the stylings of 90s R&B.
