“Closer to Myself”

“Closer to Myself” by Kendall Payne:

“Digging deep, I feel my conscience burn.
I need to know who and what I am. This hunger jolts me from complacency.
Rocks me, makes me meet myself

Jacob walked a limp to remind him
Of the greater gift of the greater one.
But when I fell, I fell to my own resources

How can I carry the truth if I can’t even crawl to you?
I wanna feel something sweeter than this sin.
Cover me in leaves roll me over again.
I've been everybody else now I want to be
Something closer to myself

Paint me in a different light.
Shed me yet another coat of skin.
Mark me with ash until I'm clean again.
’cause I’m so sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I know I can love you, I know that I can La di da di da di da”

From the soundtrack of the movie, “Never Been Kissed
