This might sound a bit crazy
But I can't help but say it
I'll tell you what I saw
And you'll tell me what you think
This A.M. after breakfast
I was cruising past the sidewalk exit
Of the store where you work every morning
And this blond-haired boy with his trumpet toy
And his new shoes on
And your hair was long
You were flipping left and right as you work
He was saying things, you were listening
You were talking back
You thought I didn't see that but
Baby, everybody's always said I had eyes behind my hat

I held you in close up
I held you in close up
I didn't want to get too excited
Wasn't invited to the party
So I didn't come in

Oh girl, I held you in close up and you lied
I know I'm abrasive but I'm not control creation
I just demand what I need
And I trash what's left
We're tired, that's alright
We learn to believe in cold nights
And many we've seen in this outfit
Cloudy skies with you
Rainy eyes with you
And this other jake
He's such a flake
And he's slimed me with every intention
What a tragedy, what sight to see
Now I'm throwing dirt because that really hurt
And no, nothing's gonna make me believe
We could be what we were

I held you in close up
I held you in close up
I didn't want to get too excited
Wasn't invited to the party
So I didn't come in

Oh, I held you in close up
And you lied to my face
Oh baby, you've been a bad, bad girl

I held you in close up
I held you in close up
I held you in close up
I held you in close up
I held you in close up
I held you in close up
I held you in close up

And this is what, oh, oh, is what I get
Oh, you've been so bad

    General CommentThis song is about a girl who is dating a boy yet she is flirting with someone else behind her boyfriend's back. This happens way too many times today. Pretty much Gavin is saying he held this girl close up. He cared for her so much, yet she goes and does this to him. He is saying its not right and he wants to know the truth and to stop the lying.
