"Gonna Get Close To You" as written by and Lisa Dalbello....
I like to look at shadows sweating on the wall
I get excited when I hear footsteps in the hall
Outside your balcony I have a room with a view
And I'm watching you

I dial your telephone each and every afternoon
I wait by your door till you're asleep at night
And when you're alone I know when you
Turn out the light

I'm gonna get close to you
Oh-Oh so close to you
I'm gonna get close to you
I'm gonna get close

You fumble for your keys
I'm six or seven steps behind you
I'm so close to you
Are you terrified of me? What do I know about you
How did I find out?
You think I'm a fool or maybe some kind of lunatic
Say I'm wasting my time but I know what to do with it
It's as plain as black and white

I'm gonna get close to you
Oh-Oh so close to you
I'm gonna get close to you
Oh so close

If you knew my infinite charm
There'd be no reason to be so alarmed
Maybe I'm wrong maybe I'm right
Maybe I'm some kind of lunatic
You say I'm wasting all of my time
But I know what to do with it
It is plain as black and white

I'm gonna get close to you
Oh-Oh so close to you
I'm gonna get close to you
I'm like a hungry Criminal
and your protection is minimal
So minimal

    General CommentYes a cover, originally recorded by Lisa Dalbello (Lisa Dal Bello). Queensyrche has done this song justice!

    General CommentI like Queensryche (Jet City Woman etc) but hearing him (Geoff) sing this song is very creepy. I can't help but wondering what possessed him to record it?
