John Prine — That Close To You lyrics

Like a bolt of lightning
Like a bolt of thunder
Like a cloudy day
Down at the zoo
Like a drowning man
That will never go under
That close to you
Yeah, that close to you
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/john-prine-that-close-to-you-lyrics.html ]
In the middle of the night
You'd ask me to make you smile
You'd come on like a one armed child
With a hole in it's shoe
Poor you
Everybody oughtta know
It only hurts ya for a little while
So stop putting yourself on trial
For something you didn't do
Not you
To me
Can't we
Be
Just like
Lovers and mothers and brothers
And sorrow
Can I find a little something
With a nicer view
I'm hating to plead
But I'm begging to borrow
Just to be
That close to you
Yeah, that close to you
