"Closer" as written by and Rob Thomas....
Dressed to kill an audience
like you had an audience
don't think you found an audience with me
cause i lay every card on the table
strip the band from its label
i can understand if you're scared of me

and if you're scared you probably should be

getting closer to you
closer to you than god
stripped away from the world
closer to me
tell me just how it feels
to be ripped away from yourself
so detached from the world
closer to me

now both hands behind your back
let me give you a heart attack
don't be scared, i'll bring you back down to me
trust me, i might seem a little dangerous
just because i don't give a fuck
of what anyone thinks of me

and if you're scared you probably should be

getting closer to you
closer to you than god
stripped away from the world
closer to me
tell me just how it feels
to be ripped away from yourself
so detached from the world
closer to me

i wont lie to you, i like it
i like it obsessively close
like when it feels like pain to me
it feels like pain to me
let me make sure that you're safe
and then i'll pull you closer to me

getting closer to you
closer to you than god
stripped away from the world
but i think i like it
tell me just how it feels
to be ripped away from yourself
so detached from the world
closer to me

    General Comment"interesting things happen in the dark... sometimes."

    the guy's a total player, obviously, and he enjoys the control of it, the power.

    the "let me make sure that you're safe"
    is not meaning "let me make sure that the girl is not in danger..." it is meaning instead "let me make sure that she's not going to be anything else but this."
