Well you thought you let go
But you're still hangin' on
Mother Earth's slowing down
She's still spinning around
And we... are gettin' dizzy

I'll drop out of the race
For more personal space
'Cause the rocket we're in
Get so cold and I miss your skin...
It's just how I'm feelin'...

If you need more love
Well, you've got to get close to me
If you want my love
Well, you've got to get closer to me

No unreachable itch
If you hemmorage, I'll stitch
You are tears, I'm a cheek
I'm a pail on your boat with slow leaks
Out to sea for weeks...

If you want my love
Well, you've got to get close to me
If you need my love
Well, you've got to get closer to me
Ooh, if you want my love...

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY WE CAN'T GET CLOSE ENOUGH
I WANT YOUR KITE STRINGS TANGLED IN MY TREES ALL WRAPPED UP
I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY WE CAN'T GET CLOSE ENOUGH
I'LL BE THE COMETS THAT ARE FALLIN' FROM THE SKY YOU LIGHT UP

Light up...

You're my shirt, eye and arm
I'm the tick, you're the bomb
You're the L and the V
I'm the O and the E...
Am I speaking clearly?

If you want my love
Well, you've got to get close to me
Ooh, if you want my love...

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY WE CAN'T GET CLOSE ENOUGH
I WANT YOUR KITE STRINGS TANGLED IN MY TREES ALL WRAPPED UP
I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY WE CAN'T GET CLOSE ENOUGH
I'LL BE THE COMETS THAT ARE FALLIN' FROM THE SKY YOU LIGHT UP

I don't understand why we can't get close enough...
I miss the shivers in my spine every time that we touch...
