Earl Thomas Conley — The Closer You Are lyrics

I can't get you out of mind
It hurts more than I expected
You sure a lasting impression
On this heart of mine

It's gonna take a lot more than time
And tears to help me get over
The weight of the world on my shoulders
Without you by my side

Cause the more I think about you
The harder it is to conceal
I pretend I'm not lost without you
But seeing you makes it so real
And the closer you are, the farther away I feel

It was always so easy on my own
Man I used to have that down
I'd laugh, I'd dance, and I carried on
But I don't do that now

Cause the more I think about you
The harder it is to conceal
I pretend I'm not lost without you
But seeing you makes it so real
And the closer you are, the farther away I feel
