Rae Morris – Closer

Rachel Anne Morris is a British-born singer-songwriter. Born in Blackpool Morris first became interested in music at age 15 when she enrolled in a college course in arts and music. She began to perform at local gigs in her second year of college and released her first single in 2012. Since she has performed acts at Reading and Leeds festivals. Previous EPs Grow and For You do a similar justice, with the title track of the former is another pensive marriage of Rae’s piano and singing abilities, with an infectious chorus tying the whole song together beautifully. The latter release, meanwhile, offers up ‘Hard to Forget’ and ‘Day One’ in addition to its title track, two sublime pieces that would, hopefully, continue to be featured strongly in Morris’s repertoire after an almost guaranteed debut album release.

Rae Morris is staying busy in 2014. In May, she released her EP, Do You Even Know, followed that up in July with the Cold, and now, this fall, the UK-based singer-songwriter is dropping another EP, Closer. The self-titled, lead single was the first track released from the new body of work yesterday, and was heralded by Zane Lowe (of BBC) on his well-known “Hottest Record in the World” series.

Rae Morris – Closer Lyrics:
Far away and feeling sober, I can keep you closer,
A static constant in my mind. Conscious cards are the table,
Our house is so unstable, But i’m not leaving you behind.

Into the unknown. For now we’ll keep it at that,
A little silence takes me back, To where i feel home.
Remember what we’ve done there,
A place where i can rest my bones.

Going, going, gone, You’re moving away from me,
but i feel you closer, i feel you closer.
Going, going, gone, Whatever is left of me,
will keep me closer to you.
I feel closer, closer, closer, to you.
I feel closer, closer, closer, to you.

A little give and take, Is never bound to break,
The kind of closeness that we keep. A bond invisible,
Beyond the physical, As I let you slip away…

Going, going, gone, You’re moving away from me,
but I feel you closer, i feel you closer.
Going, going, gone, Whatever is left of me,
will keep me closer to you.
I feel closer, closer, closer, to you.
I feel closer, closer, closer, to you.
I feel, Miles away, from being here,
now is not the time to break away yet.
Miles away, for being near, now is not the time.
Into the unknown, to where i feel home.
Into the unknown…
Going, going, gone, You’re moving away from me,
but i feel you closer, i feel you closer.
Going, going, gone, Whatever is left of me,
will keep me closer to you.
I feel closer, closer, closer, to you.
I feel closer, closer, closer, to you. I feel,
Miles away, from being here,
now is not the time to break away yet.
Miles away, for being near, now is not the time.
