World Closing In

from by Jesse Brewster



Hooky upbeat gypsy-jazz influenced jam laced with soaring fiddle and guitar solos, big background vocals and a footstomping rhythm


Eerily enough, I find myself alone again
In this tiny room
Betrayed by a friend, abandoned by a lover
With the world closing in

But you, never listened to the doubters
Steadfast and secure
You helped me to believe again

If it’s lonely at the top, there’s no doubt that it’s lonelier
At the bottom looking up
Before you came along, the only solace was my solitude
And the pain I grew to love

But now, you’ve opened up my eyes
Sifted through the muck
And held me to my word

It’s getting quiet in my head
Voices fade and distorted
I take a breath

I can’t believe looking back, all the pain and the worry
That I put so many through
Now the voices are gone, I hope I won’t be tempted
To get lost inside my head

But still, the memory keeps on haunting
Will I ever be free
Or a just slave to mind?
