Just Close Enough

  • We sparked something here once
    Who's to say we can't do it again
    They say Hemingway once slept here
    And if the world was flat maybe this is where it ends
    We took our love for granted
    Boxed it up and put it on a shelf
    We got lost in the chaos
    I never thought we'd lose ourselves

    It's like we're speaking two different languages
    I see your lips are moving, don't hear a word you say
    Are we calling it quits or are we saving it
    We're just close enough to be too far away
    Always just close enough to be too far away

    Drowning in overtime, raising a couple kids
    Ignoring our problems just like our parents did
    I wish someone would have warned us
    It look love thirty years to let us know
    That the flower you don't water is the flower that won't grow

    It's a million miles to the other side of the room
    It might take a while to get there, but I swear I'll get here soon Writer/s: BJ Barham, Lori McKenna
