"As Close as I Came to Being Right" as written by and Rosanne Cash Stewart Ransom Miller....
I thought you were the wind
Rattling through this house again
I thought you were the moon
Lighting up these empty rooms
I thought you were the sun
Shining down on everyone but me
I thought you were the night
And that's as close as I came to being right
I saw you on the ground
Every time that I fell down
I saw you in the sky
Reaching out as I flew by
I heard you on the sea
Always calling out to me
I saw you in the Northern Lights
And that's as close I came to being right
I didn't know it could grow so dark
I didn't know it could break my heart
I thought it better not to put a fight
And that's as close as I came to being right
I thought you were the wind
Blowing through my home again
I thought you were the moon
Now nothing lights these empty rooms
Oh, I thought you were the sun
Spreading warmth on everyone but me
I thought you were the night
And that's as close as I came to being right
That's as close as I came to being right
