Lyrics of Closer to the Heart

And the men who hold high places
Must be the ones to start
To mould a new reality
Closer to the heart

Und die Männer, die Höhen zu halten
Muss die, um zu starten
Um Schimmel eine neue Realität
Closer zum Herzen

The blacksmith and the artist
Reflect it in their art
Forge their creativity
Closer to the heart

Der Schmied und der Künstler
Reflect es in ihrer Kunst
Forge ihre Kreativität
Closer zum Herzen

Philosophers and ploughmen
Each must know his part
To sow a new mentality
Closer to the heart

Philosophen und Pflüger
Jeder muss wissen, seinen Teil
Um säen eine neue Mentalität
Closer zum Herzen

You can be the captain
I will draw the chart
Sailing into destiny
Closer to the heart

Sie können den Kapitän
Ich werde zeichnen dem Diagramm
Segeln in Schicksal
Closer zum Herzen


'Closer to the Heart' is a single by Rush, released 1977, from the album 'A Farewell to Kings'. It was the first Rush song to have an external co-writer, namely Peter Talbot, a friend of drummer and lyricist Neil Peart. It was issued as a single for Christmas 1977, and after two near misses with 'Fly By Night' and 'Bastille Day' in 1975, it finally gave Rush their first hit single in the United Kingdom, reaching No.36 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1978, starting a change of fortunes for the band in the UK.

It is one of Rush's most popular recordings, receiving a fair amount of radio airplay still to this day. The song has also been part of the set list on nearly every tour since 1977. The band then dropped 'Closer To The Heart' for the bulk of their Vapor Trails Tour and R30: 30th Anniversary Tour because, according to Peart, 'we got sick of it.' On their live albums 'A Show of Hands' and 'Different Stages', Rush appended several minutes of jam type playing at the end of the performance.

On the original track and live performances from October, 1977 to May 1983 and then again from November 1996 to January 2005, Peart played his acoustic drum kit but used a Simmons (then later Drum) electronic drum kit in live performances of the track from June 1984 to May 1994.

During the third season of the Canadian television show 'Trailer Park Boys', Alex Lifeson makes an appearance, as well as the song. At the end of the episode, Lifeson and Bubbles play the song together. The 'R30' DVD includes a clip of the band playing the song with Bubbles and Barenaked Ladies member Ed Robertson.
