Closer

Almost There album coverWords and music by Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers On a slow train to the edge of the city In the lurching of an empty car Your jaded eyes, a thin disguise You’ve never gone this far You hear the punch punch of the hole in your ticket And the old man sings a station song And when you dare descend the stair Your shadow will grow long This is your time, this is no test You’ve got no crime to be confessed There’s only love for evermore Will take you back to the core When you stand alone in the crush of the city When your heartbeat is a distant drum You never know that you must go Until the time has come In the cold light of insinuation You’re a cartoon of what they say You take your stand when you demand Just who the hell are they Chorus The drum drum is taking you back...
