Too Close


I just finished what I consider to be my best song in a long time, and I’d love for you to hear it.

We don’t dream about each other anymore
Spilled our souls and now we’re too close
Close your eyes, accept a simple kiss goodnight
From the one who loves you the most

Distant lovers and fictional heroes
All our fantasies, longings, and hopes
Fill our dreams as we lie here together
Too close, too close

I broke out in laughter when you told me that
Being with me is like being alone
But I knew you meant it as a compliment
This is what it means to be home

Don’t allow yourself a single guilty thought
Novelty has infinite charms
You’ll exchange illusion for reality
When you wake up here in my arms

I see you when I look in the mirror
But in sleep we see through telescopes
Looking out over light years not inches
Too close, too close.
