Closer To Fine Lyrics Brandi Carlile & Catherine Carlile

[Verse 1: Brandi Carlile]
I'm tryin' to tell you somethin' about my life
Maybe give me insight between black and white
But the best thing you ever done for me
Is to help me take my life less seriously
'Cause it's only life after all, yeah
It's only life after all

[Verse 2: Brandi Carlile & Catherine Carlile, Brandi Carlile]
Well, darkness has a hunger that's insatiable
And lightness has a call that's hard to hear
I wrap my fear around me like a blanket
I sailed my ship of safety until I sank it
I'm crawling on your shores

[Chorus: Brandi Carlile & Catherine Carlile, Brandi Carlile]
And I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains
There's more than one answer to these questions
Pointing me in a crooked line
And the less I seek my source for some definitive
The closer I am to fine, yeah
The closer I am to fine, yeah

[Verse 3: Brandi Carlile & Catherine Carlile]
And I went to see the doctor of philosophy
With a poster of Rasputin and a beard down to his knee
He never did marry or see a B-grade movie
He graded my performance, he said he could see through me
And I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind
Got my paper, and I was free

[Chorus: Brandi Carlile & Catherine Carlile, Brandi Carlile, Catherine Carlile]
I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains
There's more than one answer to these questions
Pointing me in a crooked line
And the less I seek my source for some definitive
(The less I seek my source)
The closer I am to fine, yeah
The closer I am to fine, yeah

[Bridge: Brandi Carlile]
I stopped by the bar at 3 a.m
To seek solace in a bottle, or possibly a friend
And I woke up with a headache like my head against the board
Twice as cloudy as I'd been the night before
I went in seeking clarity

[Chorus: Brandi Carlile & Catherine Carlile, Brandi Carlile, Catherine Carlile]
I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain
Yeah, we go to the Bible, and we go through the workout
And we read up on revival, and we stand up for the lookout
And there's more than one answer to these questions
Pointing me in a crooked line
And the less I seek my source for some definitive
The closer I am to fine
The closer I am to fine
The closer I am to fine, yeah
The closer I am to fine,
The closer I am, the closer I am
The closer I am, the closer I am
The closer I am, the closer I am
To fine, to fine
The closer I am
