At The Onset – To Be Close lyrics

I tried to tell you
I tried to help you see
That I'm not the enemy
You keep fighting
You're denying
Who you're meant to be
The walls you built won't bring you peace
This heart of stone won't set you free
All I have for you is good
But you keep pushing back on Me

You and I were meant to be like a fire that would never cease
Yeah you and I were meant to be together for eternity
There's nothing that you can do
To change the way I feel about you
You and I were meant to be close

Like static
On the radio
You've tuned Me out and let Me go
If you listen
I'm still singing
The song you used to know
You can rest I'll be your peace
Just let Me in I'll set you free
All My promises are good
You know I will never leave

And I hear you say
'Am I too far gone
And I'm tired of feeling all alone
When You could be the only thing I want'
