LYRICS // Closer To The Now (1998)

‘Closer To The Now’ was originally written as a poem to a former Valentine, expressing the hope that what was once a relationship could be rekindled into a friendship. In time, it both did and didn’t, which is another story altogether that may or may not be told one day.


It also became a song for The Zamora and was the one that we sometimes closed sets with. The lyrics don’t really need any decoding as they seem to stand up for themselves.


The picture was taken by Jayne Routley, at The Zamora’s last show. The song can be downloaded here.


Closer To The Now

We may be poles apart, my love, we may be intertwined,
But just for this one day in time, be my Valentine.

We may be right, we may be wrong, we may be yours and mine,
Just for this one day in time, give me reason and rhyme.

I had so many dreams,
They’re just continuations.
I’m closer to the now.

I’ll take confusion,
And offer a solution.
We’ll make it somehow.

We may be yin and yang, my love, we may be day and night.
Just for this one day in time, we’ll know that something’s right.

We may have known each other long, we maybe always will,
Just for this one day in time, let’s only drink our fill.

I had so many dreams,
They’re just continuations.
I’m closer to the now.

I’ll take confusion,
And offer a solution.
We’ll make it somehow.

We may be been and gone, my love; that maybe suits us fine,
Just for this one day in time, be my Valentine.

We may be been and gone, my love; that maybe suits us fine,
Just for this one day in time, be my Valentine.

I had so many dreams,
They’re just continuations.
I’m closer to the now.

I’ll take confusion,
And offer a solution.
We’ll make it somehow.
