YOU WERE MUCH CLOSER
Chorus
No need to fear
I can hear your word say
And my eyes filled with tears
Because you felt far away
So I returned to our place
And to my surprise
You were much closer, than I realize

Sometimes it's hard, I must agree
When I depend on, someone like me
I just end up abused, and in need of care
But lord I call, I call to you lord, and you're always right there
Chorus
Sometimes my fears are hard to miss
(Anybody know what I' talking about)
Because my storms, they don't wanna pass
So when my mind feels confused, and my heart starts to stray
I call upon, the name of the lord
And I'll hear him say, there is no no

There is no need to fear
(I can hear Jesus say)
I can hear Jesus say yeah
(But my eyes filled up with tears because you felt)
So far away
(So I)
So I returned to our place
(Returned to our place)
And to my surprise
(You were standing right there)
You were much closer, than I realize

(And you are author of the word and I saw you were closer)
Closer, you were much close
It took all this time to realize, you were standing right by my side
Closer, you were much close
You were much closer, than I realize
(x2)
Closer, you were much close
(When I thought I was going down for the last time my father), you were standing right by my side
Closer
You were much closer, than I realize

You were much closer, than I realize (x3)

    Even with the hard times that we go though, we still forget that he does listen to us and when we feel that we're alone. We forget how close he is to us
