“You know there’s no one else I’ve wanted to be, than to be there when you need me. I’m sorry too, but don’t give up on me. And just remember that when you were asleep, I got a little bit closer to you.” ~The Wallflowers 🥀🎹🎶🎤🎵🌹 There’s no one else I want to be than to be yours. To be the shoulder you need to cry on, to be your knight in shining armor, to be there for you night and day, whenever you need me to be. “When I feel I’m slipping further away, I just remember that everyday I get a little bit closer to you.” Whenever I find myself sliding farther away, I just remember that everyday I get a little closer to you. To us. One day we can be together, and every single day that goes by and passes - that fantasy gets a little bit closer to becoming reality. The wait is more than worth it, and so are you. And I’ll commit to you, love you, & take care of you with more than all I’ve got.
Closer to you is easily one of the greatest soft rock piano ballads of all time! What’s your favorite song by The Wallflowers? Mine is definitely this one at the moment. It was bloody hard to learn though. It really pushed me out of my comfort zone, as I not only feel more at home on guitar but my vocal range was really pushed here as well. This was like take 5, it’s still not perfect but I think it’s getting somewhere. It’s a work in progress. I actually played it like a lot more after this vid was taken and improved on it quite a bit, but I just decided to go with this clip. Perhaps I’ll play it at WOB in November with the guitar and see how it sounds! Oh yeah had to learn it on guitar before hand and then put it on piano, because I’m a guitarist who plays piano like a guitar player 😂.... #closertoyou #redletterdays #thewallflowers #jakobdylan #tobimiller #bobdylan #softrock #adultalternative #rockmusic #bringingdownthehorse #oneheadlight #6thavenueheartache #threemarleans #wallflowers #somethinggoodthiswaycomes #piano #pianist #pianoplayer #keyboard #keyboardist #keyboardistsofinstagram #musician #musiciansoninstagram #rocknroll #rockandroll #savingrockmusic #90srock #rock #musiciansofflorida #tampamusicscene
