"Closer To The Sun" as written by and Ryan C Moran Kyle J Mcdonald....
If I think she beautiful, well, that's for sure
Give a little loving, but I still gonna need some more, rob it
Stealing from the rich and then give it to the poor
Telling everybody it don't matter anymore, she said
All I really needed was a friend like you
Help me through and together we can change, but
If I was to stay it wasn't for too long
People sing the same song everywhere I'm going
Closer to the sun and far from the moon
People screaming out they gonna see me real soon
They say ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

If I think she beautiful, well, that's for sure
Give a little loving, but I still gonna need some more, rob it
Stealing from the rich and then give it to the poor
Telling everybody it don't matter anymore, said
All I really needed was a friend like you
Help me through and together we can change, but
If I was to stay it wasn't for too long
People sing the same song everywhere I'm going
Closer to the sun and far from the moon
People screaming out they gonna see me real soon
They say ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    General Commentimma plant my seed, let it grow free, simple as I be. Tha roots of dis piece in my eyes be always live with the bright side not always the "right" side of the picture. You are who you are, as beautiful as you see yourself to be so theres one thing thatll set you free from the comfusion. no matta where you go youll always be you. just follow your heart not social morales. To b free find what would matter most above all then that will be your guidance of past the rest and the clearing of your hearts path. always know everything is beautiful tho if you look closer to the sun, and far from the moon.

    General CommentI believe this song is about his journey to finding the right girl. At first he was caught up in the wrong girl that he could never seem to please. To me, "Stealing from the rich and then give it to the poor" explains how he took away the moments he could of had with the right lover, and instead gave it to her. And then, note this is just a wild guess, I suppose she only viewed him as a friend, i.e. "All I really needed was a FRIEND like you". He seems to love her, as you can tell from him calling her beautiful, and this tears him apart. So, rather than sticking around as a friend, he moves on closer to the sun- closer to finding the one.

    Now if I'm wrong, it could mean getting closer to his happiness, and have no relation to love. But hey, it's just my opinion, right?

    And repeating it twice could have to do with a cycle.

    General Commenti agree, this is an awesome song...the vibe I get from it is that he just keeps moving on, "if i was to stay it wasn't for too long, people sing the same song everywhere I'm going." Its the same thing everywhere he goes, but he keeps moving, closer to the sun.

    General CommentThe line Should be
    "I rob and steal it from the rich
    you know I give it to the poor."
