"Come Closer" as written by and Jim James....
So I slave away.
On the floor and walls for a day.
Buy you the beer can you pay.
Get emotional each time they say your name.
Oh soldier you look so strong.
Who held you that you fought so long.
Who told you that you left me amazed.
There's something left I gotta say.
How long can you stay?
I been waitin' all day
I been meltin' away
Just to send off with you.
Come closer. come closer.
So today. I won't call anyone for change.
"Toes 'cross the floor," hear it play.
Good at holdin back at eatin away your legs.
Come closer.
Oh boo la too.
Oh boo la too.
Oh boo la too.
Come closer

    General CommentThe line "'toes 'cross the floor,' hear it play" is a reference to the Blind Melon song, I believe.

    General Comment...a most gorgous song, when i play "come closer", i hope or rather like to imagine there's a woman somewhere, who's man is a soldier serving his tour in either Iraq or Afghanistan, and when the fighting's over and he comes home...she conveys to him the sentiments of this song. i gather what makes me do that are the lines..."oh soldier you look so strong.
    who held you that you fought so long." Lastly it's very nice to see how others have taken to the song. bye 4 now.
