"Come Closer" as written by and David M Martijn/wessels Westerholt....
I want to lay my head down
Come close, come closer
What's that uncomfortable sound
Of your key in the door - I hear you walking out
Walking out again
Why didn't you stay a while
To say goodbye, my friend

I want to lay my head down
Come closer, come closer
I thought you'd turn me
But you were turning around
I think I'm losing you
Losing you again
Why didn't you stay a while
To say goodbye, my friend
My friend

Winter shadow cools you
White before your eyes
Summer shadow soothes
Nothing on your mind
Winter shadow cools you
White before your eyes
Summer shadow suits you
Tonight

I want to lay my head down
Come closer, come closer
Trying not to remember
Our most precious of times
Remember winters cold
And summers by my side
Please tell me I do leave
A void of any kind

Winter shadow cools you
White before your eyes
Summer shadow soothes
Nothing on your mind
Winter shadow cools you
White before your eyes
Summer shadow suits you
Tonight

Winter shadow cools you
White before your eyes
Summer shadow soothes
Nothing on your mind
Winter shadow cools you
White before your eyes
Summer shadow suits you
Tonight

    My InterpretationMy opinion: The inevitable end of a relationship. The significant other seems to have mentally checked out, and is indifferent to her ("winter shadow cools you, white before your eyes"). They may already be planning to move on to someone else, something fresh and new ("summer shadow soothes, nothing on your mind"). She of course, is still committed to the relationship and simply wants to make it work, for the other to simply stay.

    Whatever the meaning, the song is absolutely gorgeous and lush.
