"Closer" as written by Tor Erik Hermansen, Bernt Rune Stray, Magnus Beite, Mikkel Eriksen and Shaffer Smith....
Closer
Closer
Closer
Closer

Turn the lights off in this place
And she shines just like a star
And I swear I know her face
I just don't know who you are
Turn the music up in here
I still hear her loud and clear
Like she's right there in my ear
Telling me
That she wants to own me
To control me
Come closer
Come closer

[Chorus]
Oh I just can't pull myself away
Under her spell I can't break
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
And I just can't break myself no way
But I don't want to escape
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
I just can't stop

I can feel her on my skin
I can taste her on my tongue
She's the sweetest taste of sin
The more I get the more I want
She wants to own me
Come closer
She says "come closer"

[Chorus]

[Repeat: x7]
(Come closer)

[Repeat: x4]
I just can't stop no

[Chorus]

Oh I just can't pull myself away
Under her spell I can't break
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
Come closer

    General CommentNot my fave Ne-yo song, but it's very catchy somehow.
    I like more and more, the more I listen to it. Pretty good, I think

    General Commentthe second lyrics are the correct ones, thanks lrkrmo15

    this song is about infatuation-to me-and the initial feeling of someone who you are attracted to when they are stuck in your head and all you want is to be around them.

    General CommentIt's catchy. I really like it... the lyrics here are a bit off though. This seems a little closer:

    *--

    Closer...x4

    Turn the lights off in this place
    And she shines just like a star
    And I swear I know her face
    I just don`t know who you are
    Turn the music up in here
    I still hear her loud and clear
    Like she`s right there in my ear
    Telling me that she wants
    To own me, to control me
    Come closer... (come closer...)
    Come closer...

    And I just can`t pull myself away
    Under her spell I can't break
    I just can't stop, I just can't stop
    I just can't stop, I just can't stop
    And I just can`t bring myself away
    But I don`t want to escape
    I just can't stop (I just can't stop)
    I just can't stop (I just can't stop)
    I just can`t stop

    I can feel her on my skin
    I can taste her on my tongue
    Shes the sweetest taste of sin
    The more I get the more I want
    She wants to own me...
    Come closer...
    She says, "Come closer.."

    And I just can`t pull myself away
    Under her spell I can't break
    I just can't stop, I just can't stop
    I just can't stop, I just can't stop
    And I just can`t bring myself away
    But I don`t want to escape
    I just can't stop (I just can't stop)
    I just can't stop (I just can't stop)
    I just can`t stop

    Come closer... x7

    I just can`t stop, noo
    I just can`t stop, noo
    I just can`t stop, noo
    I just can`t stop noo...

    And I just can`t pull myself away
    Under her spell I can't break
    I just can't stop, I just can't stop
    I just can't stop, I just can't stop
    And I just can`t bring myself away
    But I don`t want to escape
    I just can't stop (I just can't stop)
    I just can't stop (I just can't stop)
    I just can`t stop

    And I just can`t pull myself away
    Under her spell I can't break
    I just can't stop (I just can't stop)
    I just can't stop (I just can't stop)
    I just can't stop

    Come closer....

    General CommentI think someone posted the lyrics wrong...arn't they

    "Turn the lights off in the place
    and she shines just like a star"

    How is this even possible? gives me the creeps. sorry but ne-yo lost my respect if the lyrics I found for this song are the correct ones.

    General Commentok--well, I believe the lyrics are totally off..but, I could be wrong. I think instead of "She's the sweetest taste I've seen," I think it's "she's the sweeatest taste of sin," which would make more sense, since the song is obviously about a desire that he shouldn't have. He's full of lust and has become completely consumed by her. He just can't stop--but at the same time he doesn't want to. It's obviously a struggle, but he's weak.

    General CommentThe commented lyrics are correct. I just caught that.

    General CommentHow doesn't that make sense, Lorilie11? Stars usually shine at night in the darkness. And he's comparing her to a star. He doesn't mean she's literally going to shine, it's a metaphor.
    Anyway, I love this song. It's so seductive.

    General CommentI can't stand this song. It's disturbing! at first I thought I liked it because I liked the message of being closer but after furthur examination- the song sucks.
