Closer To Fine

The sky’s Earl Grey
The cloud’s all bruised
The weather’s turned funny
But I’m not amused
You say life is simple
Yet I’m still confused
Was it something I said?
Something I didn’t do?

The room’s ice cold
I’m chilled to the bone
Surrounded by people
I still feel alone
You say smile be happy
You ask much of me
Was it a ghost from the past?
Or the need to be free?

Chorus:
Oh I’ll be alright
I’m getting closer to fine …closer to fine
This heart will heal
Wounds will all seal
The scars disappear with the passage of time
And I’ll be alright
I’m getting closer to fine …closer to fine
I’ll be fine

The days drag by
The nights never end
Could always try smiling
But I can’t pretend
If I made an effort
Not to try so hard
I could learn to relax
You could let down your guard

Chorus:
Oh I’ll be alright
I’m getting closer to fine …closer to fine
This heart will heal
Wounds will all seal
The scars disappear with the passage of time
And I’ll be alright
I’m getting closer to fine …closer to fine
I’ll be fine … I’ll be fine
I’ll be fine

Bridge:
You got a nerve
To call out of the blue
In the middle of the night
Have you lost somebody new
You have no right
I don’t care
To hear the way you feel
Your heart’s aching, I’m still waiting
For my own to heal
It will heal

Chorus:
And I’ll be alright
I’m getting closer to fine …closer to fine
This heart will heal
Wounds will all seal
The scars disappear with the passage of time
And I’ll be alright
I’m getting closer to fine …closer to fine
I’ll be fine … I’ll be fine
I’ll be fine
I’ll be fine … in time
