"Closer" as written by Gregory Allen Kurstin and Writers Unknown....
All I want to get is
A little bit closer
All I wanna know is,
Can you come a little closer?

Here comes the breath before we get a little bit closer
Here comes the rush before we touch, come a little closer

The doors are open, the wind is really blowing
The night sky is changing overhead

It's not just all physical
I'm the type who won't get oh so critical
So let's make things physical
I won't treat you like you're oh so typical
I won't treat you like you're oh so typical

All you think of lately
Is getting underneath me
All I dream of lately is how to get you underneath me

Here comes the heat before we meet a little bit closer
Here comes the spark before the dark, come a little closer

The lights are off and the sun is finally setting
The night sky is changing overhead

It's not just all physical
I'm the type who won't get oh so critical
So let's make things physical
I won't treat you like you're oh so typical

I want you close, I want you
I won't treat you like you're typical
I want you close, I want you
I won't treat you like you're typical

Here come the dreams of you and me, here come the dreams
Here come the dreams of you and me, here come the dreams

It's not just all physical
I'm the type who won't get oh so critical
So let's make things physical
I won't treat you like you're oh so typical

I want you close, I want you
I won't treat you like you're typical
I want you close, I want you
I won't treat you like you're typical

I won't treat you like you're typical
I won't treat you like you're typical

All I want to get is
A little bit closer
All I want to know is,
Can you come a little closer?

    General CommentNot a lot of nice, romantic songs out these days. I love this song. The chorus is also increadibly catchy, and Iove the bridge and pre-choruses.
    It produces such vivid imagery.
    I love how flirty Tegan's voice is as well

    General Comment"… you know, i'm singing being haunted... by a time that feels so ideal, and yet so impossible to return to."

    General CommentI'm the type who WON'T get oh so critical (per common sense when thinking about the lyrics - who would want to get with Mr or Ms Hypercritic? - and the official lyric video youtu.be/…)
