Song of the Week: “Closer” by Goapele

Song of the Week: “Closer” by Goapele

Happy Monday!

I am excited today because I know everyday I wake up, I’m getting closer and closer to my dreams.  It’s always good to have a song that not only depicts exactly how you feel, but helps to keep you in the state of mind that brings your feelings to life.  “Closer” by Goapele, does just that.

I know I say this a lot about my Songs of the Week, but…  I love everything about this song and video…  From the soothing beat, to the inspiring lyrics and her beautiful voice, set to the scene of the enchanting forest that only enhances Goapele’s captivating beauty, while allowing the pure innocence and curiosity of the precious little girl to run free.  I also love the symbolism of how the little girl represents the inner child that we all have to unleash in order to move closer to our dreams. There is nothing that is not amazing about this song and how it’s presented.

As you continue to reach for your dreams, be inspired by the lyrics and video below:

“Closer to my dreams

Coming over me

I’m getting higher

Closer to my dreams

I’m getting higher and higher

Feel it in my sleep

Sometimes it feels like I’ll never go pass here

Sometimes it feels like I’m stuck forever and ever

But I’m going higher

Closer to my dreams

I’m going higher and higher

I can almost reach

Sometimes you just have to let it go

Leaving all my fears to burn down

Push them all away so I can move on

Closer to my dreams…”

Add this song to your playlist as a reminder to keep getting higher and closer to your dreams:

  1. Hmmm… I can’t really say what songs ‘cos I have lots of favourites, but I love gospel soft rock. It gives me inspiration to think, write or even daydream. I love the lyrics of this song by the way. Nice choice.

    • I have my “Feel Good Music” playlist that is a combination of gospel, R&B, Neo Soul, Pop, and even some rap, all with positive messages, and that playlist gives me the same inspiration you speak of. I always listen to it to write and get my mind focused on my work. It’s great to keep me in a pumped up mood also.

  2. this may as well be my theme song. you have no idea how much I heart this song!
