For Sandra

INDIGO GIRLS
Closer to Fine 
Words and Music: Emily Saliers

I’m trying to tell you something bout my life
Maybe give me insight between black and white
And the best thing you’ve ever done for me
Is to help me take my life less seriously
It’s only life after all

Now 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 till I sank it
I’m crawling on your shores

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
The closer I am to fine

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
I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind
I got my paper and I was free

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
The closer I am to fine

I stopped by the bar at 3 am
To seek solace in a bottle, or possibly a friend
And I woke up with a headache like my head against a board
Twice as cloudy as I’d been the night before
I went in seeking clarity

I went to the doctor, I went to the mountain,
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain
We go to the doctor, we go to the mountains,
we look to the children, we drink from the fountains
We go to the bible, we go through the workout,
we read up on revival, we stand up for the lookout

There’s more than one answer to these questions pointing me in a crooked line
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
