  • Come a little closer baby
    I feel like layi'n you down
    On a bed of sweet surrender
    Where we can work it all out
    There ain't nothin' that love can't fix
    Girl it's right here at our fingertips
    So come a little closer baby
    I feel like layin' you down

    Come a little closer baby
    I feel like lettin' go
    Of everything that stands between us
    And the love we used to know
    I want to touch you like a cleansin' rain
    And let it wash all the hurt away
    So come a little closer baby
    I feel like lettin' go

    If there's still a chance then take my hand
    And we'll steal away
    Off into the night 'til we make things right
    The sun's gonna rise on a better day

    Come alittle closer baby
    I feel like strippin' it down
    Back t othe basics of you and me
    And what makes the world go 'round
    Every inch of you against my skin
    I want to be stronger than we've ever been
    So come a little closer baby
    I feel like strippin' it down

    Come a little closer baby
    Just a little bit closer baby
    Come a little closer baby
    I feel like layin' you down Writer/s: BRETT BEAVERS, DIERKS BENTLEY

  • Brett Thompson from Sevierville TnWow, If this is the Amanda, of Burnsville Minnesnowda I know, holy crow. Of all the websites in all the world... we wound up posting on the same song.
    I would have to agree, definitely in my top 10. I hear this song as the very meaning of intimacy. Everything between 2 people reconnecting. Its getting closer, its sharing, its dropping the cares of the world to focus on each other, its the natural intimacy that follows, and flows during sex. Ironically, its one of the 3 songs I've learned on the guitar my wife gave me...10 years ago.. gotta make a little more time for that.
  • Amanda from Burnsville, MnMy absolute favorite song ever. when i hear this song, i think of it as coming closer emotionally, pyhysically, and mentally. forgiving each other(on a bed of sweet surrender where we can work it all out)(there is nothing that love cant fix),letting go of everything that is coming between the two,(Come a little closer baby, I feel like letting go, of everything that stands between us and the love we used to know) and getting back to the pure basic simple love, (back to the basics of you and me and what makes the world go around)
  • Eric from Milltown, InThis song always reminded me on Conway Twitty's "Love To Lay You Down." Both great songs.
  • Janet from Shoes, ArThis song is about sooo much more!! "Come a little closer baby, I feel like layin' you down." This to me means that they want to get closer in words by laying down and talking. "Come a little closer baby, I feel like lettin' go." I take this as getting closer and letting go of all the secrets that you keep to yourself. " Come a little close baby, I feel like strippin it down." I took this as meaning strippin down all the lies and coming forward with your true feelings. This song means to me just getting closer as a couple. <3 janet
