Jimmy Eat World – Closer lyrics

Everyday I get a little closer, dear
Will you love me darling when I get there?
I'll need sunshine, I'll need rest
Pour us whiskey, water, kiss

Remember me, she said smiling
Write my name somewhere safe
Touch and taste
Fades with space
I'll never be who you'll dream

Everyday I try a little harder, dear
But those things you do, I don't wanna hear
You'll have yours, I'll have mine
No one guilty, no one right

La la la
La la la

You'll have yours, I'll have mine
No one guilty, no one right

Everyday I get a little closer, dear
Gonna drive fast all night till I get there
Not much time we can waste
Nothing great left to save
