Closer Than Close

 She'll read your mind
 She's smart as a whip
 She'll suck you dry
 But look at how much I drip
 At the point of ecstasy
 I write a symphony
 Of poetry in motion
 And leavin' me there to die
 I tell myself
 Let no one take her place
 To confide in someone
 And look at how much I paid
 I want you next to me
 Call it telepathy
 We drifted into vision
 And look at how much we see
 I just wanna get closer than close to you
 To the moment you discover
 What the best of my love can do
 And lovers fall for lovers' friends
 We make each other cry
 Living in each others lives
 And tryin' to make the fantasy come true
 But I just wann get closer than close to you, baby
 I just wanna get closer than close, to you
 Your soul is naked
 It tells you what you want
 I read your letter
 And look at how close I've come
 There's more for us to see
 In this philosophy
 We both end up in heaven
 And look at how close we'd be
 I just wanna get closer than close to you
 I know that one way or the other
 Any test of my faith will do
 I give my heart for you to break
 I give my final breath
 When nothing lasts forever see
 What we can turn eternity into
 And I just wann get closer than close to you, baby
 I just wanna get closer than close, to you
