Close to you

Story Behind The Song

I got together with a friend which progressed into a relationship we never thought would happen. It actually turned out that from a joke it helped me to get through a very difficult time. I'd longed for a situation where I didn't have to try to be something I wasn't. I could just be myself. I grew into the relationship and had some very happy times.

Lyrics

Say what you want and you think what you say,
I know where I stand and you want me to stay,
A place of your own and a place in my heart,
I was cold I was nervous, That was the start

I?ve always wanted
to have someone to make me and break me out of my shell,
Now I?m closer and I?m slowly but surely becoming the person I am

No longer alone, I?m no longer afraid,
You ar my lover, but first you?re a friend
I know where I stand and you want me to stay
NO, Nobody comes close to you

Who would have known I would come to your home
Provided some lights and then stay for night
I?m down when you go and I drown when apart
I was cold I was nervous, That was the start

I?ve always wanted
to have someone to make me and break me out of my shell,
Now I?m closer and I?m slowly but surely becoming the person I am

No longer alone, I?m no longer afraid,
You ar my lover, but first you?re a friend
I know where I stand and you want me to stay
NO_____, Nobody comes close to you

Who would have known it be us, that would both be together
Who would have thought it me Close to happy again

I?ve always wanted
to have someone to make me and break me out of my shell,
Now I?m closer and I?m slowly but surely becoming the person I am

No longer alone, I?m no longer afraid,
You ar my lover, but first you?re a friend
I know where I stand and you want me to stay
NO_____, Nobody comes close to you
