I came close so close to failure
I came close to living alone
I know the kids still love me
And their mama

But I came so close
To losing my home
I felt small enough
To drown in each teardrop

But big enough to admit
I was wrong
When I think of what I've done
The cheer runs through me

'Cause I came so close
To losing my home
I felt small enough
To drown in each teardrop

I came so close
To losing my home
