Listen to Close Enough

We all hope to find someone who can share our lives, our dreams, our long string of days. But at some point, we’ll just settle for someone to share this moment and maybe this night. This song cries out from the corner of every barroom, about 25 minutes from closing time.

Bonus video, because this world needs more surprises: We recorded this when we played The Brickyard. This is a fantastic place to play. Thanks to Mark and the whole Brickyard staff.


Close Enough

         D            E          A
She's a blue-eyed survivor in a red vinyl booth
         D           E              F#m
He's an old man in training in the $12 suit
           D            E           A           F#m
They tell little white lies that rhyme with the truth
            D                E       A
And that's close enough for closing time

      D           E
It's close enough
      A
It's close enough
  D               E       E
Close enough for closing time

He's kinda tall for a sad man and he's looking the part
with a stain on his sleeve in the shape of a heart
and he longs for a lover who's fair, fine and smart
or just close enough for closing time

She came in from a corner where nobody wins
to a place in the middle where she can pretend
she's not all that lonesome and he might be a friend
And that's close enough for closing time

Somewhere a piano is playing a song
Almost makes them from better but that don't last long
They're leaving together but they both feel so alone
I guess its close enough for closing time

She's a blue-eyed survivor in a red vinyl booth
He's an old man in training in the $12 suit
They tell little white lies that rhyme with the truth
And that's close enough for closing time
And that's close enough for closing time
