closer to myself lyrics – payne, kendall

digging deep, i feel my conscience burn
i need to know who and what i am
this hunger jolts me from complacency
it rocks me, makes me meet myself

jacob walked a limp to remind him
of the greater gift of the greater one
but when i fell, i fell to my own resources
how can i carry a truth, if i can’t even crawl to you?

i wanna feel something sweeter than this sin
cover me in leaves and roll me over again
i’ve been everybody else now i wanna be
something closer to myself

paint me in a different light shed me yet another coat of skin
mark me with ash until i’m clean again
’cause i’m so sick and tired of being sick and tired
i know i can love you, i know that i can

i wanna feel something sweeter than this sin
cover me in leaves and roll me over again
i’ve been everybody else now i wanna be
something closer to myself
