Today a thought crossed my mind, soon as I opened up my eyes
When was it that I last took the time to tell you you’re the one
Who came and saved me, you’re the one thing this world can’t take away from me
Despite my imperfections, you turned your love in my direction
So forgive me please if I forgot to say, I need you here with me
For every minute of every passing day, I sure don’t wanna waste anymore
Of our time, so many don’t realize, what a Blessing it is just to be alive

(chorus)
And I’m glad for one more day to get closer to you
Closer and closer to that part of you
That can touch me in a way no one else can do
Just wanna be closer to you

Had a little bit of money, had a little bit of fame
Even had a few people calling out my name
Had some good times living the good life but it’s all temporary
I even had some friends who promised me they’d be right there until the end
But I watched them all disappear. Now it’s you I wanna be near

(rpt. chorus)
No matter what it was you always got me through it
And man’s gonna try to separate you and I but they can’t do it
Cause what could separate me from your love?
You told me nothing would, you told me nothing could…

And I’m so glad to be alive for one more day
I could’ve been taken on yesterday. And I’ll never waste another chance
To tell you that I love you. So what I’m gonna do
Is get closer, closer, closer to you

Today might be the day, people don’t waste your time away
Get closer people, gotta get closer.
