"Close to the Front" as written by and Felix/winehouse Howard....
Only paid attention in your lessons
I Sat close at the front so I could see
Your enthusiastic demonstrations
Teaching to a class of only me
And I couldn't speak directly to you
Without stuttering or turning red
So looking back I don't know how I handled it, yeah
Futile frustration in my head

[Chorus]
I can't help but analyze your actions,
Neglecting mine
Before I know I've fallen hard
And now I tread water in time

Hated it when I saw them together
I sat around waiting for shit to end
Unconsciously I tried to sabotage it
To get revenge on my best friend
Because I was in love with him before her
I had just cause to grieve
So not long after she broke up with him
I got my closure on new years eve

[Chorus: x2]

I love all the bickering and insults
And when I shout at you and you smile
Making coffee while my mind spills over
How I catch your art once in a while
Shouldn't I have grown a little wiser?
Why haven't I learned my lesson yet?
And although I have made my love progresses
I tend to learn as much as I forget

[Chorus: x3]

    General CommentI've heard the whole song and it is basically it talks about how Amy really likes this guy, but her friend starts dating the guy. So, Amy does her best to mess up the relationship. She felt like since she liked the guy first, she had a reason to feel sad and get revenge on her best friend. When her friend breaks up with the guy, Amy seizes the opportunity to get with the guy on New Year's Eve. Judging from the third verse it seems that they argue a lot, but they enjoy it. She starts to ask herself shouldnt she be more wiser or learn her lesson and i guess stop attracting men like this, but she says she tends to learn as much as she forgets, and I'm guessing she forgets a lot.

    The third verse, I interpreted to the best of my ability and I put in a request to get the rest of the lyrics for his song.
