Closer To Myself

Artist: Kendall Payne | Album: Jordan’s Sister | © 1998 Fit for the Queen Music / Aniello Music

Digging deep, I feel my conscience burn
I need to know who or what I am
This hunger jolts me from complacency
It rocks me… and makes me… meet myself

‘Cause Jacob walked a limp to remind him
Of the greater gift of the greater one
But when I fell, fell to my own resources
How can I carry the truth, if I can’t.. crawl to you?

I want to feel.. something sweeter than this sin
Cover me in leaves.. roll me over again
’cause I’ve been everybody else
Now I want to be something… closer to myself

Paint me in a different light
Shed me yet another coat of skin
Mark me with ash until I’m clean again
’cause I’m so sick and tired… of being sick and tired
I know I can love you.. I know that I can!

I wanna feel.. something sweeter than this sin
Cover me in leaves.. and roll me over again
I’ve been everybody else,
Now I want to be something… closer to myself

I want to feel something sweeter than this sin
Cover me in leaves and roll me over again
’cause I’ve been everybody else,
Now I want to be something… closer to myself!

And I wanna feel.. something sweeter than this sin
Cover me in leaves.. roll me over again
I’ve been everybody else,
Now I want to be something… closer to myself
