I woke up thirty three, not quite where I thought I'd be
Fell short of a lot of dreams and expectations that are put on me
A lot of those things I thought I'd need
Don't mean as much as I thought they'd mean
I sure got far away from where I'd say I'd be today

But I'm closer to right where I should have been
To the man I really am and to the friends who call me friend
And I'm even closer to the woman that I love, to my faith in God above
I'm still not sure exactly where it is I'm goin'
But I'm closer, little bit closer

Well, I guess at some point that switch turned off
And I stopped being the man I'm not
But counting on what I ain't got
And I found a faith somewhere I lost

And got closer to right where I should have been
To the man I really am and to the friends who call me friend
And I'm even closer to the family I left behind
And that world I'd thought I'd find
When I left it thinkin' there was something more
Yet I'm closer, closer

I woke up thirty three, not quite where I thought I'd be

Closer to right where I should have been
To the man I really am and to the friends who call me friend
And I'm even closer to the woman that I love, to my faith in God above
I'm still not sure exactly where it is I'm goin'
But I'm closer, closer, I'm gettin' closer
