who said that i wasn't right?
i've lived for years without a life
don't have a sould on my side
still ridiculed despite how hard that i have tried
don't take me under your wing
i don't need a hand, don't need anything
i've got a roof over my head
as if i'd rather be alone with me instead

close yet far
drop me a line and tell me how the hell you are
and i'll tip my hat to those who can't believe it's me
and i never never never ever wanted this to be

i can hear the sounds of the city
sunrise and set are the same to me
a hesitating pulse is good company
and my reflection offers no apology
but who said that i wasn't right?
and i've lived for years without a life
don't have a sould on my side
still ridiculed despite how hard that i have tried

close yet far
drop me a line and tell me how the hell you are
and i'll tip my hat to those who can't believe it's me
and i never never never ever wanted this to be

close yet far
drop me a line and tell me how the hell you are
and i'll think of days when there was something to believe
and i never never never ever wanted this to be

    Song MeaningTo me it sounds like no one though he could make it big or amount to anything for the matter. Specifically family. He didn't care he didn't need or want help from anyone he's used to being a lone wolf because there wasn't anyone there to begin with. Or so it seemed. But, still he wants to know how maybe his parents are doing the still thinks about them it's family after all. He tips his hat into respect to the people that believe in him now. Even though he never wanted to be famous or to make it big.

    That's what I gather.

    General CommentThis is such a good song. A brilliant mellow song... a stark contrast to most of the new album. Great for meditating to after a long day...
