"Too Close for Comfort" as written by Thomas Michael Fletcher, Daniel Alan Jones and Dougie Lee Poynter....
I never meant the things I said
To make you cry
Can I say I'm sorry

It's hard to forget

And yes I regret
All these mistakes
I don't know why you're leaving Me
But I know you must have your reasons
There's tears in your eyes
I watch as you cry
But it's getting late

Was I invading in on your secrets
Was I too close for comfort
You're pushing me out
When I'm wanting in
What was I just about to discover
When I got too close for comfort
Driving you home
Guess I'll never know

Remember when we scratched our names into the sand
And told me you loved me
But now that I find
That you've changed your mind
I'm lost the words
And everything I feel for you
I wrote down on one piece of paper
The one in your hand
You won't understand
How much it hurts to let you go

Was I invading in on your secrets
Was I too close for comfort
You're pushing me out
When I'm wanting in
What was I just about to discover
I got too close for comfort
Driving you home
Guess I'll never know

All this time you've been telling me lies
Hidden in bags that are under your eyes
And when I asked you I knew I was right

But if you turn your back on me now
When I need you most
But you just let me down, down, down

Would you think about what you're about to do to me
And back down

Was I invading in on your secrets
Was I too close for comfort
You're pushing me out
When I'm wanting in
What was I just about to discover
I got too close for comfort
You're pushing me out
When I'm wanting in
(Yeah yeah yeah)

What was I just about to discover
When I got too close for comfort
Driving you home
I guess I'll never know

    General Commentdefinately the best song on the album. I think it's pretty obvious what it means. When i heard this song it was a wake up call for me. I never realised i was like that until my friend was like "listen to that song and think about who YOU are"

    it's basically two people that are together and one of them starts to want to know more about the other person but that person feels insecure about telling/talking about (personal) things and so they start to break away and push people out.

    General Commentthe 2nd verse, where danny sings : 'And everything I feel for you
    I wrote down on one piece of paper
    The one in your hand
    You won't understand
    How much it hurts to let you go'

    General CommentThis is definately one of my favourites on the album - the accoustic they did was flawless of this.

    The second verse: "Remember when we scratched our names into the sand
    And told me you loved me
    But now that I find
    That you've changed your mind
    I'm lost the words
    And everything I feel for you
    I wrote down on one piece of paper
    The one in your hand
    You won't understand
    How much it hurts to let you go"

    I think it's saying that when you really love someone and they've changed their mind, then you reflect the memories and write it as it is. Amazing.

    General Commentthis song if fucking awesome. best song on the album without a doubt. i would explain what it is about but people have already done that so i will just praise the song...
    like the bit in the song where is sorta breaks down and tom, dougie n danny sing a bit each...it's so amazing! and oh my god! danny's voice is sooo beautiful and powerful! and dougie is just fucking gorgeous, but that is like besides the point...
    it's so easy to relate to...ahh i love it! :D
    cuz they sound angry and annoyed, but really they are just frustrated that they are losing the one they love.
    argh! i love it! soo much! it's fuckin amazin live! anyway! xx mcfly are amazing xx

    General Commenti remember i heard the accoustic of this the day i found out all the lies my dad had been telling me

    'Was I invading in on your secrets
    Was I too close for comfort
    You're pushing me out
    When I'm wanting in
    What was I just about to discover'

    pure love for this song.
    even though it makes me sad x
