"Closing In" as written by and Imogen Jennifer Heap....
I can't wait
To be with you
No I just can't sit still,
Are we there yet?
Takes me back,
I remember
Such a magical place
It was so, you

Closing in
I hope that you make it
Closing in
I hope that you find your way

Frame by frame,
With speed ahead
The city dissolving,
The thread of your love in the headlights
Is it safe now?
Will your arms be open?
I just have to kiss you,
Try and stop me

Closing in
I hope that you make it
Closing in
I hope that you find your way
Closing in
It's all that I want in the whole world
Closing in
Please be there, please be there

What are you like?
Where did you get to?
Know what I think?
You didn't hold me, for any longer
What do you want for the fear of love?
Or don't you believe enough?
Well I'll cover both of us
You can leave that to me!

Closing in
I hope that you'll make it
Closing in
I hope that you find your way
Closing in, closing in.

    General CommentI interpreted this song as someone who "can't wait" to be with their soulmate... and hoping that there is such a thing.

    The first line sounds hopeful and excited. The feeling she has "takes [her] back" to another time when she has felt similar.

    The chorus seems like she feels she will meet him soon and doesnt want to be let down.. as in.. I hope that you make it to me.

    In the second verse, she is imaging what it will be like to finally be with him. It reminds me of a movie scene where the camera spins around a kissing couple. To me, asking if it is safe is her way of making sure he is "the one."

    The anticipation starts to make her worry that she won't meet the love of her life. "It's all that i want in the whole world, please be there"... she keeps hoping.

    The last verse sounds like she is wondering all about him. She finally finds someone she thinks is the one but the other person isn't as in love as she is. She tells him she can believe enough for the both of them because she wants it so badly.

    Finally, the different tense in.. "I hope that YOU'LL make it" shows that she has met someone and wants him to come around and realize that they were meant to be... but it is in desperation. The music tells us otherwise. I really like the contrasting ideas.

    But that could be a huge stretch.

    General CommentI think thats just about right, she's in love with the idea of being in love with this guy. When it comes to the realisation of meeting him again she loses her grip on this personification and is at a loss.

    General CommentI don't know anything about this album really, but I feel like it is a concept album. I feel like it is the progression of her relationship with someone, from fascination and stalker like obsession in "goodnight and go" to her soon to be lover's stuborness to admit their love in "the walk". I think this song is about her making a breakthrough. The object of her affection has fallen for her and it is only a matter of time before they are no longer scared of a relationship.

    General CommentMaybe a girl was in love with somebody she knew a long time ago, and she finnaly see's him again and she hopes that he's like he used to be. But when she see's him again, he's changed a lot, but she is going to try to work things out.

    That's probably different than of what most people think, but that's just my guess. :/

    General Commenti'm probably letting a personal experience color my interpretation of this song, but . . .

    to me, it seems like the lyrics are the thoughts of a person who is deeply, obsessively in love with someone else, someone who might not be aware of their infatuation, but at the very least doesn't likely feel the same intensity of emotions. she hasn't seen the person she's in love with in a long time, and is trying to find them so that she can finally make her intentions apparent. and, regardless of how this person feels about her, she means to love them.

    General Commenti think sumeragi_slut said it right, yeah. she's still in love with someone she hasn't seen in ages, and she's gonna be seeing him again and is describing her feelings and what it's going to feel like to see him again..."i can't wait to be with you"..."i just have to kiss you/try and stop me..." etc.
