lyrics

CLOSER THAN BEFORE

I watch us now as we grow older
Slowly drifting to the shore
And with every line
Every grey hair that we find
I hold you closer than before

We grow older and
We grow younger
Sometimes I look at you
And wonder how
How I’d live without you now

So look around you
And count your blessings
If you have love
You’re so much luckier than some
Just leave your lottery undone
You’ve already won

How quickly still we hail the bugle
That leads us scurrying to war
But how in the stares
Of our heroes or theirs
I hold you closer than before

We grow older and
We grow younger
See how like children still
We blunder on
Where our forefathers have gone

So look around you
And count your blessings
If you have peace
You’re so much luckier than some
Why hide your money in the sun?
You’ve already won

And when the train tannoy announces
Those we are blind to or ignore
Who through the cracks
Have fallen on the tracks
I hold you closer than before

We grow older and
We grow younger
How much like us to fail
To understand
The fragility of man

So look around you
And count your blessings
If you have hope
You’re so much luckier than some
Don’t race the Jones’s where they run
You’ve already won
You’ve already won
