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

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
