"Closer" as written by Jenna Mcdougall and Whakaio Taahi....
I cannot tell
Can you tell?
Oh, I can't tell
Am I lonely or do I need to be alone?
Tonight, this fight
Between my head and my heart
It's getting heavy now

So I'm just, just begging
Just begging for a breakdown
Sometime real soon
Cause I don't know what else is there left to do

It's like we just can't win
And everytime we get a little closer
It all caves in

And I just don't know
How do we know?
How do we know when to stop?
Baby don't stop, baby don't stop now
When we don't even know
Where to begin
You ask the questions but you aren't listening

So my heart gets heavy
With every letter that I write
I can't deny we're losing it
I've got no answers tonight

It's like we just can't win
And everytime we get a little closer
It all caves in

It's like we just can't win

It's like we just can't win
And everytime we get a little closer
It all caves in
It's like we just can't win
We both know we'll never
No we just can't win

    General CommentProbably one of their heavier songs, like the synthesizer but I hope the new album doesn't utilize them that much.
