"Come Closer" as written by Kare Vestrheim and Marit Larsen....
Give me an invitation more than a guess
Give me a sign if only one single breath
I'll give you an empty page
This is the time and place

What kind of truth lives in the absence of trust?
What is the use of holding back on this much?
My eyes are open wide
Won't you let me inside?

Come closer, love
I can't hear what you're saying
Don't make it easy love
All the corners are fraying
How can I please you, love
When I don't know what you want?
It's a nice escape, but will it keep you warm at night?
I don't think so.

Uuh, how about you tell me what you're doubting us for?
What is wrong with both feet on this side of the door?
There is no easy way I'll be the one who stays

Come closer, love
I can't hear what you're saying
Don't make it easy love
All the corners are fraying
How can I please you, love
When I don't know what you want?
It's a nice escape, but will it keep you warm at night?
It's a nice escape, but will it keep you warm at night?
I don't think so.

You're so close to me
You're so far away
I don't know what you mean
You're way out of reach
You're so close to me
You're so far away

Come closer, love
I can't hear what you're saying
Don't make it easy love
All the corners are fraying
Won't you come closer, love
I can't hear what you're saying
How can I please you, love
When I don't know what you want?
It's a nice escape, but will it keep you warm at night?
It's a nice escape, but will it keep you warm at night?
(I don't think so)

    General CommentAs for the song and what it means, I believe it's about a couple or two people in any kind of relationship (it could even be particularly one-sided?) where one of them is doubting the feelings of the other to the point of being distant. And, although they may be close physically, their emotions couldn't be more divided at times.

    "It's a nice escape, but will it keep you warm at night?", she's saying that keeping in how you truly feel and ignoring it is easy for a while, but it isn't the same as being honest to the one you love.

    I relate to it a lot, in fact. Reminds me of a conversation me and another person could very well have, if we haven't already.. oO; I guess it's just one of those situations you leave unspoken.. But I would probably be the closed up person in the song..
