Oh all these things I do to you to keep you close to me
And every day’s another day from what we used to be
& I don’t know what I’ve been thinkin’ cause this is much like hell
And it’s days like this I must insist I’m not doin’ so well

Oh no, get lost in you,
Like you know I often do
And I wonder if you’re proud of me
If you can hear me shout at me
I need to kill this doubt in me for good
So help me now to let you go

Think about these last 10 years and what they’ve done to me
& I don’t think its worth it cause its just not fun to me
what if I just kill myself and we never spoke again
would you make your way back through the darkness
and meet me at the end?

Oh no, get lost in you,
Like you know I often do
And I wonder if you’re proud of me
If you can hear me shout at me
I need to kill this doubt in me for good
So help me now to let you go

So I can live
So I can live

Oh no, get lost in you,
Like you know I often do
And I wonder if you’re proud of me
If you can hear me shout at me
I need to kill this doubt in me for good
So help me now to let you go
So help me now to let you go
So help me now to let you go

So I can live
a-Oh, So I can live
a-Oh, So I can live
a-Oh, So I can live
Oh yeah, So I can live

    General CommentThis explains a situation I went through. I had a long time friend who was a girl. It was weird, we'd be cool and all,hang out do stuff, but I was only really her friend between her dating other guys. Any, Something made her like me again, and we went all the way for like the third time and then she says she shouldn't have done that. I guess she said that since she was engaged to be married when we did that. Now shes pregnant. So that alone made things very easy. Finally stopped talking to me about a month into her pregnancy. Thank god!

    General Commentthis song might be about howi and big d's mom who died, talking about trying to keep her close to him, and he wonders if she's proud of him. but then again it might be about being in a serious relationship and stopping loving the girl. trying everything to keep her close and start liking her again maybe? but at the same time he's so unhappy he just wants it to end

    General CommentI don't want to sound picky but the name of the song is "Close to Me". Anyways, what an amazing song, Ballyhoo! might be one of the most underrated bands out there right now. These baltimore boys make some seriously good music. My buddy hired them to play at his wedding, incredible stuff.

    This song always gives me goose bumps everytime I hear it.
