"Close To Love" as written by and Miranda Eleanor De Fonbrune/higgins Cooper....
Dust dust dust dust

Got so close to love
I can almost taste the kill
Barely close enough
But I could not make the deal
Got so close to love
I can almost taste the kill
Barely close enough
But I just can't close the deal

I was snow white til I started to drift
Baby I didn't care, til I saw you there
And your manner made my animal kick
But I just didn't dare
Call me crazy yeah

Everything I ever had to lose
Is standing in the way of me and you
Panic built these walls in front of me
And nothing but my head can set me free

Man get up
We're gonna start this fire
Tangled up
Because I know I should
Can't get up
Watch the flames go higher
Tangled up
We're gonna need more wood

Got so close to love
I can almost taste the kill
Barely close enough
But I could not make the deal
Got so close to love
I can almost taste the kill
Barely close enough
But I just can't close the deal

Dust dust dust dust

I'll confess I'm in a real big mess
With the guy I love but I can't say yes
Now my only bet is take a plane ride west
Cause I can't regret what I ain't done yet

Man get up
We're gonna start this fire
Tangled up
Because I know I should
Can't get up
Watch the flames go higher
Tangled up
We're gonna need more wood

Got so close to love
I can almost taste the kill
Barely close enough
But I could not make the deal
Got so close to love
I can almost taste the kill
Barely close enough
But I just can't close the deal

Man with the chemical stare, hands off
Guy with the terrible hair, back off
Dude with the look in your eye, leave it
Man with the beautiful ride, beat it

    General Commenti think it's 'guy with the CHEMICAL stare' and 'man with the beautiful RIDE'.

    General CommentKillstar, you're rubbish... more corrections:

    Got so close to love
    I can almost taste the kill
    *BARELY close ENOUGH*
    But I COULD NOT make a deal

    *I was SNOW WHITE 'til I started to drift*
    Baby I didn't care, 'til I saw you there

    *Panic BUILT THESE walls in front of me*
    And nothing but my heart can set me free

    *MAN GET up*
    We're gonna start this fire

    *I CONFESS I'M in a real big mess*
    With the guy I love but I can't say yes


    Oh and as above...

    General CommentCheryl: I love the lyrics to this song. 'I've got so close to love, I can almost taste the kill.' It's a strong song and I think it will be a really great one to perform next year on tour.

    My OpinionI watched the live performance of this on youtube and loved it! I wish I lived in the UK so I could see them live, they seem so fun and give a really great show, especially Sarah. The live version sounds better to me, especially Nicola's part. I love that part too (I confess I'm in a real big mess...) it is the best part
