Close To You

  • Nothing but a tear, that's all for breakfast
    Watching you pretend you're unaffected
    You're pulling our connections, expecting me to let you go
    But I won't

    No you don't need my protection
    But I'm in love, can't blame me for checking
    I love in your direction, hoping that the message goes

    Somewhere close to you
    Close to you
    Like so close if they heard you, you wouldn't find out
    Just say now, I'm coming right now, to be close to you

    Said you let it go, you kept it
    Working hard to perfect it
    Now your fear is reckless, and it's out of your control
    Would you let it go?

    No you don't need my protection
    But I'm in love, can't blame me for checking
    I love in your direction, hoping that the message goes

    Somewhere close to you
    Close to you
    Like so close if they heard you, you wouldn't find out
    If you let me, I'd be there by now
    Close to you Writer/s: Brian Kennedy Seals, James Fauntleroy, Robyn Fenty
