Closer To You / Brandi Carlile

I'm staring out at endless rows of green
There are miles of hay like I have never seen
Just when you think you've had enough and
your dreams come true
I just want to be closer to you

Closer To You, written by Brandi Carlile and Phil and Tim Hanseroth, performed by Brandi Carlile in 2005.

She writes great songs, sings beautifully, and is as cute as a button! I'll be honest, I only looked up her albums because of how she looks, but I bought her music because of what those albums contained. Anyway, here's a live version of the song. Her live performances blow her albums out of the water.

This song has always, and always will, remind me of traveling aimlessly for hours in my car. No direction, no bearing, no stereo. But as much as I want to keep driving forever and leave it all behind me there is always that spark, that purpose, or that person that keeps drawing me back.

(Fun mini-game: "Count The Clich├ęs!")
