Closer - Guster

Seldom are things just as they seem
Calluses grow to keep what's underneath
Seeing it now I must admit
The cowardly way to keep you from me

Cause I have been bought and sold
Done just as I've been told
If you, if you ask me what was wrong
I'd answer nothing
Nothing

Finally you are gone
Can't believe that I cared once
Burn this place, burn it down
Nothing there's worth being saved

Five years ago when I used to think
Something is better than nothing
I never did learn or did I forget?
Once you give it away you cannot take it back

Cause I have been bought and sold
Done just as I'd been told
If you, if you ask me what I'd done
Was good for nothing
Nothing

The closer you are
The less that I see
But you're not around

Finally you are gone
Can't believe that I cared once
Burn this place, burn it down
Nothing there's worth being saved

Finally you are gone
Can't believe what I've done
Burn this place, burn it down
Nothing's there worth being saved
