"Closest I Get" as written by and Cason Cooley Katie Herzig....
What if I wait and you don't show
If I left you half just to keep me whole
What if I held my breath so long
Would you notice the silence had lasted so long
What if the closest I get to the moment is now

I have seen love come and go
I watched it pass with my heart held close
There's no easy way to know
If I'm looking back or if I'm getting close
What if the closest I get to the moment is now

Love it has no guarantees
Which muse will lay it's hands on me
We said the words we knocked on wood
And I'm still here waiting to see what could be
What if the closest I get to the moment is now?

    My OpinionI really love this song, and find it hard to believe that anyone has ever comented it. It´s a beautiful song, not only the lyrics or the meaning, but the music by itself and the addictive voice of Katie Herzig.
    I think this song talk about love, and how scary it is. when it says "what if the closest i get to the moment is now?" think that it refers to the closest she gets to love, I mean the most she can love someone, the closest or the most she can feel for someone, or the closest to be happy. And not being sure if this is the right moment or if this is the feeling. well I`m pretty bad to explain myself, but I just can say that I love this song ♥
    "What if I wait and you don't show, If I left you half just to keep me whole" Love this part :)

    My InterpretationI think its about relationship that ended in some reason and she want to believe there will be second chance...
    and she says as long as she will wait the other person will forget her or let his feelings go.. this is so sad...
    What if the closest I get to the moment is now?
