CLOSER THAN YOU KNOW
"My wife was pregnant with out second child during a heat wave in Toronto. I wrote this song for her to provide her some relief. I sang it for her and she said, "That's nice dear, can you please get me some ice?" " - Lindy

***
An anthem-like track worthy of stadium broadcast if it were backed by a full band, just as big as Vopnfjord’s love for his wife for whom he penned this song, the track is a simple gem of propulsive emotion! “We’re closer than you know / I’m holding out for you now,” he sings heroically, almost cheekily when you understand he wrote the song for his pregnant wife who had enough of a Toronto heat wave. “When we’re together / Whatever the weather,” could be that humourous nod to the excessive heat. A cute, and a fun ballad that warrants some serious sing-along action and fist-air pumps, this song is well on its way from one steamy Parkdale kitchen table to a thousand other relief stations and couples nationwide!

Lyrics

CLOSER THAN YOU KNOW
Out of my league
Leap into the big sky
Into the deep
When we're together
Whatever the weather
When we're laughing
See us together
Just when we set off the spark
And it's a raging fire
A fire rising like moonlight out of the dark

We're closer than you know
We're closer than you know
I'm holding out for you now
We're closer than you know

I held out my hand
Just like the first time
When we first began
And even after a thousand years
Your smile will still haunt me where I stand
When we're laughing
See us together
Chasing the dawn from the night
When we're laughing
Like it's forever
But forever is in our sight

We're closer than you know
We're closer than you know
I'm holding out for you now
We're closer than you know
