closer to the bone lyrics – kris kristofferson

ain’t it kinda funny ain’t it just the way though
ain’t ‘cha gettin’ better runnin’ out of time
making pretty music closer to your feelings
working on the reason running on the rhyme

heading for the highway rolling like a river
soaring like an eagle skippin’ like a stone
comin’ from the heartbeat nothin’ but the truth now
everything is sweeter closer to the bone

ain’t afraid of moonlight ain’t afraid of freedom
love will make you crazy but your soul will keep you sane
singing to the starlight over the horizon
open to the pleasure equal to the pain

heading for the highway rolling like a river
soaring like an eagle skippin’ like a stone
comin’ from the heartbeat nothin’ but the truth now
everything is sweeter closer to the bone
