close i’ve come lyrics – ben lee

i slipped into a house to escape my enemies
and opened the door to another world
of lovers and wh*r*s but i loved you more
than any of them and ever before

look how close i’ve come, how close i’ve come
how close i’ve come, how close i’ve come
how close i’ve come, i’m far away

the universe is brought back from the brink of destruction
every time you smile
but i can see things clearer it’s all smoke and mirrors
yeah you broke my f*cking heart but i still want you

look how close i’ve come, how close i’ve come
how close i’ve come, how close i’ve come
how close i’ve come, i’m far away
look how close i’ve come, i’m far away

one can only guess what would happen if
i got all my questions answered
then we’d know for sure who’s got the quickest draw
who’s laying dead and who’s above the law

look how close i’ve come, how close i’ve come
how close i’ve come, how close i’ve come
how close i’ve come, i’m far away
look how close i’ve come, i’m far away
