Far Too Jones Close to You Lyrics

sponsored links
Watching daybreak, chase shadows from you, as you cling to sleep
There`s a moment in my world, when I don`t want to breathe
Just want to be silently close to you

I see myself as a hand me down, all broken in
I see myself tattered and torn, I can be brand new
When I`m close to you

Don`t ever let anyone ever tell me what it is they think I need
Because they`ve never seen the way you look at me
As if there`s something in me that nobody else can see
I keep one hand in the filth of my life, one hand I keep for you
You bring me up, you bring me out, you bring me in
I want to be, I want to be close to you

When I`m close to you
You never see things the way I did
Instead I find I ain`t satisfied with the man, the man I think I am

Anything you want, anything you need
I want to be the one you come to, I want to be the one you run to
I want to be the only one to, I want to be close to you

You`ve been too far away
[Lyrics to "Close to You" (new version 1999/2000)]
Watching daybreak, chase shadows from you, as you cling to sleep
There`s a moment in my world, when I don`t want to breathe
Just want to be quietly close to you

I keep one hand in the filth of my life, one hand I keep for you
When restless ones tear at my sleeve
You`re the comfort I believe in
I want to be, I want to be close to you

I see myself as a hand me down, all broken in
And I see myself, I`m tattered and torn, I can be brand new
When I`m close to you
I never see things the way I did
Instead I find I ain`t satisfied with this man, the man I think I am

You know it`s true
Anything you want (yeah), anything you need
I want to be the one you come to, I want to be the one you run to
I want to be the only one too, I want to be close to you
