Close To Me

Album: released as a single (2020)
  • Lately I, I've been trying
    To get you off my record and off my mind
    Running in place, I've memorized the ceiling
    You know I'm too proud to call it quitting time

    The years that change a person, the times that make it worth it
    All those nights, I thought that meant me
    Lord knows we danced around it, he knows we never found it
    We never could decide who should lead

    Close, I want you close to me
    Close enough to push you away
    Close, I want you close to me
    I won't be surprised when you don't stay

    Baby I, I've been lying
    Telling you to get on out of here
    And when you go I've been crying
    Cuz I feel so much better when you're here

    The years that change a person, the times that make it worth it
    All those nights, I thought that meant me
    Lord knows we danced around it, he knows we never found it
    We never could decide who should lead

    Close, I want you close to me
    Close enough to push you away
    Close, I want you close to me
    I won't be surprised when you don't stay

    I can't trust how I'm feeling when I'm feeling this way
    It's late, I'm lonely and I'm wishing that I told you you could stay
    Would stay....

    Close, I want you close to me
    Close enough to push you away
    Close, I want you close to me
    I won't be surprised when you don't stay
