Closer to You

Lord my soul is weary
It ain't up for a fight
Been damned by the darkness
Been runnin' from the light

All my best intentions
All my best tries
Left me nothing but tired
Left me on the wrong side of right

And I ain't got a fight
I ain't got a fight

Been building my own kingdom
Been making my own rules
Been a slave
I've been a citizen
I've been the king of fools

On a sandy foundations
I built these city walls
But that first storm came a ragin'
Now they ain't standing at all

And I ain't got a fight
I ain't got a fight

Oh my soul is stubborn I know
But you're drawing me closer to you
When I've given up control
That's when I'll know
You're drawing me closer to you

Lord I ain't got nothing
Nothing I can bring
My lifetime of excuses
Don't add up to anything

But you're setting your table
And you offer me a seat
We break your bread and drink your wine
And dine like family

Oh my soul is stubborn I know
But you're drawing me closer to you
When I've given up control
That's when I'll know
You're drawing me closer to you

Lord my soul is weary
It ain't up for a fight
Been damned by the darkness
Been washed in the light
