“Closer” is a reflection on the value of life. The lyrics, penned by singer Scott Taube, are divided into two parts. The first half of the song depicts Taube’s emotions during his grandmother’s long battle with cancer (to which she eventually succumbed) - illustrating the pain and sadness he endured during that time. The second half, built upon the feelings described in the first, takes a step back to look at life in general. Here we find Taube’s realization that a lifespan is indeed fleeting, but is never meaningless - the choices you make and the life you lead on Earth have an eternal effect, and should not be taken lightly. In the end, a resolution is made to live a life dedicated fully to Christ and sharing His love.

Official Music Video:


They have calculated outcomes we just pray the numbers lied
it’s all calm here on the surface but a war rages inside
and she lays still tonight

pull me closer while I count the days
until I see your face
until I look into your eyes
when I’m tired you can carry me
until I see your face
until I look into your eyes

we can fire back
another plan of attack
something to tip the scales in our favor again
if we’re expecting less
we just allow the glass to drain empty through the cracks in the bottom
and wash away
don’t wash away tonight

this is life
and I am passing through
but this world has been caught lying about what it is I’m here to do
this is life
it’s mine to waste or use
but it’s time that I decided
it’s time for me to choose
cause who am I
that you would die to prove
that the worthless are all worth it
the curse has been removed
so this is life
and though I’m passing through
I wanna live as if I’m dying
dying to get close to you
