"Closer To Mercury" as written by and Brendan Harney Ricky Brennan....
And I would have walked behind
I would have walked beside you
I would have told you every lie
I would have done that for you

Open your eyes sometime
It's funny how I adore you
Gonna get every line just fine
I'll even sing it for you now

There was a time I felt
The morning sun rose up for you
I would have whispered in your ear
I would make coffee for you
I would have crossed that line
I could have drawn it for you
Tell me that everything is fine
Couldn't you do that for me now?

Because I'm a fan
From way back when you faltered
Waiting for your man
If you can remember
I was standing there with you

Wouldn't you say
That I've been an idiot for you?
I couldn't shake you if I tried
I light a candle for you
Somehow the time flies by
And I haven't done it for you
And I haven't solved a single thing
And I haven't done that for you now

Because I'm a fan
From way back when you faltered
Waiting for your man
If you can remember
I was standing there with you

Summer love moves fast
You get a little slower when the fall moves past
But you'll never find another love like my love
Winter slows the pace
Spring brings the summer back to your face
But you'll never find another love like my love

I'm getting along now that I found salvation
Not that I've found salvation
I open your eyes, salvation's now

    General Commenti was walking through fye looking for a completley random cd and stumbled upon wheat, and now i think they're so amazing, if you come onto this site PLEASE find a way to download some wheats songs, they are all SO good. anyways, best line in this song is "there was a time i felt the morning sun rose up for you" so good, i mean. everyone has a person who feels that way in life. this song is amazing, its just saying that theres all of this stuff he WOULD have done if he'd given her a chance

    General CommentTo me this is a song about a guy who is in love with a girl. However, the girl considers him as a friend. The guy tries to be ok with this, he stands by her side with everything she does, hoping that one day she will see him as more than a friend. He even helps her with her relationships, trying to give advise, etc. even though it is killing him.

    Then he gets over her. That is what the "summer love" part is. He is saying that he fell in love, she didn't move quickly enough, and now he is at peace. There is a bit of vengeance it seems though. Even though he has moved on, he tells her that she will never find love like his.

    My interpretation, songs are different to different people. We can all agree this is an awesome song though.
