  1. You fail at life. You have stolen my soul. I am here for my revenge. No one will ever love you as they love me.

  2. Sweet! I like it. Well done and creative! I heard this once on XM radio and think it's growing on me already.

  3. The Lyrics are so soothing, Thank you Andrew for reminding me things will be ok when everything is falling apart <3

  4. I can't listen to this song the same way again. The movie theater I work at used to play this song all the time between showings, so whenever I cleaned a theater, it always played. And I mean… ALWAYS. Great song though haha

  5. Andrew's release day facebook post:

    What have the artists said about the song?

    It’s no secret that I enjoy taking risks and “So Close” was forged in the middle of such a moment. It was penned after the first Wilderness tour when so much in my life felt like it was on the verge of something; Some great victory or defeat. It was hard at the time to tell which. There’s a nervousness that goes along with launching new projects and it creates an energy and excitement that bleeds into everything. Personal relationships, self confidence, sleep and dreams. For me, “So Close” is a snapshot of life’s uncertain moments. Moments where every breath and motion is charged with anxiety and hope, fear and fearlessness.

  6. The live version on the Carson Daly show is infinitely better. Great song. Should've been a huge hit. WTH is wrong with this world?

  7. I hear this over on the intercom at a grocery store I work at a few times. Good song. Why didn't this become a hit? I'd much rather have this than some of the songs that are playing on radio right now.

  8. I'm an old man from another gen … but with excellent taste in music …
    and I say …..

    This one's a winner. I have spoken.

  9. My sister just sent this song to me… Just moved to San Diego and I'm missing Texas so bad and my loves there…😔 Feeling low and scared of what's ahead…but damn…she reminds me with this song of seeing Andrew live in Arizona and in Austin-
    his bravery ..hopes and dreams all come true and it shows with his amazing music. Your music inspires me and gives me courage in this hard time dude. You're awesome. And if you see this Amanda and Liz, I love you guys… Katie you have my 💓 girl! Throwin it on the internet 😊😉😆

  10. To the people who are here from David's blogs please stfu, no one who loves Andrew McMahon and his music care. Just enjoy the music.

  11. Is it just me or does Andrew McMahon look like or remind you Alex Moffat from Saturday Night Live?
    No?, I guess it's just me.

  12. Lyrics
    We cross a country
    In an airplane with the wings on fire
    Hanging from the seat belt sign
    That's the one thing
    There's no safety in desire
    Preserving life's as good as dying

    And these could be the best or darkest days
    The lines we walk are paper thin
    And we could pull this off or push away
    'Cause you and me have always been

    So close
    So close to giving up
    So close to going all the way (so close)
    So close
    So close to taking off
    So close to going nowhere (nowhere)
    So close
    So close to giving up
    So close to going all the way (so close)
    So close
    So close to taking off
    So close to going nowhere (nowhere)

    I heard you whisper over the hum of an electric chair
    To live like this could take its toll
    But you're no stranger to the high of almost getting there
    Are we losing touch or taking hold?

    And these could be the best or darkest days
    The lines we walk are paper thin
    And we could pull this off or push away
    But you and me have always been

    So close
    So close to giving up
    So close to going all the way (so close)
    So close
    So close to taking off
    So close to going nowhere (nowhere)
    So close
    So close to giving up
    So close to going all the way (so close)
    So close
    So close to taking off
    So close to going nowhere (nowhere)

    I wanna go there
    I wanna go there
    I wanna go there
    With you

    So close
    So close to giving up
    So close to going all the way
    We're so close
    So close to taking off
    So close to going nowhere

    So close
    So close to giving up
    So close to going all the way (so close)
    So close
    So close to taking off
    So close to going nowhere (nowhere)

    So close

    So close
