There are those who fly from the highest heights
On the wings they carry
Searching for the high they can never find
Thinking love is blind, never mind
They'll never see the forest for the trees
'Til they turn to love

Crying through the eyes of my own disguise
Came to know the truth from the lies
So, I hope you'll understand how
I'm another kind of man now
All I want is just to stand
Closer to your love

Don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
I wanna feel the fire, power and all I can dream of
Don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
I wanna move in closer to your love

If you try to fly from the highest heights
On the wings you carry
Searching for the high of your own design
You may come to find, you been blind

So, I hope you'll understand how
I'm another kind of man now
All I want is just to stand
A little bit closer to your love

Don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
I wanna feel the fire, power and all I can dream of
Don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
I wanna move in closer to your love

Don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
I wanna feel the fire, power and all I can dream of
Don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
I wanna move in closer to your love

Closer, we could be so much closer

Don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
I wanna feel the fire, power and all I can dream of
Don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
To move in closer to your love

Don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
I wanna feel the fire, power and all I can dream of
Don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
I want to move in closer to your love

I, don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
I wanna feel the fire, power and all I can dream of
Don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
To move in closer to your love

Well I, don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
I wanna feel the fire, power and all I can dream of
Don't wanna climb a mountain, don't wanna swim a river
I wanna move in closer to your love
