"Close to Your Heart" as written by Thomas Chad, Phil Titus, Benjamin Giddings, Stephen Sparrow and Andrew Hayes....
Jump off of the edge,
Stop picking apart your head
Let tonight unfold
Break out of the cast
Stop digging up the past
Let tonight unfold

I can see you running out of cares tonight
The weight of the world and the weight of the everything
You have balanced, you are spinning out of time
With the weight of the world and the weight of the everything
You hold close to your heart

So long, break a leg
You never break a sweat
You know, you're so sure
But your head's been down
You've been lost and found
You were born to run, to run alone
So let tonight unfold

I can see you running out of cares tonight
The weight of the world and the weight of the everything
You have balanced, you are spinning out of time
With the weight of the world and the weight of the everything
You hold close to your heart

So let tonight unfold
Let tonight unfold
Cause you look so alive

I can see you running out of cares tonight
The weight of the world and the weight of the everything
You have balanced, you are spinning out of time
With the weight of the world and the weight of the everything
You hold

    My InterpretationThis is another Morning Parade song about fight or flight. A person who feels they are not good enough for other people - even though they might act as if they are - so they flee before they are rejected. They are filled with fraught and anxiety and worthlessness, even though they seem put together. And this person sees this and is telling them to just relax. Stop analyzing everything. Stop being so perfect. Just be calm and everything will be fine. No need to run any longer. No need to carry the weight of the world, the weight of everything.
