"Close Enemies" as written by Elliot John Gleave and Alex James Smith....
There's light at the end of the tunnel
There's fight at the heart of a struggle
You're smile should've told me you're trouble
No more, no more, no more
You owned me You buried all my worth with a shovel
You're smile should've told me you're trouble
No more, no more, no more

No more goodbyes
So so long
So so long
So so long
Now
No more white lies
You used to be the one true thing in my world
You told me that you loved me
You're in love with yourself
Shoulda listen to my mother
You messed around the others
Now you're dead to me
I've been sleeping with the enemy
Should keep your best friends close by
Should keep your best friends close by
You should keep your best friends close by
But keep your enemies closer
But keep your enemies closer

So many evil talents you juggled
It's fair to say you didn't act subtle
Your smile should've told me you're trouble
No more, no more, no more
Came crashing down I'm staring at rubble
They need to send you into space in a shuttle
Your smile should've told me you're trouble
No more, no more, no more

No more goodbyes
So so long
So so long
So so long
Now
No more white lies
You used to be the one true thing in my world
You told me that you loved me
You're in love with yourself
Shoulda listen to my mother
You messed around the others
Now you're dead to me
I've been sleeping with the enemy
Should keep your best friends close by
Should keep your best friends close by
You should keep your best friends close by
But keep your enemies closer
But keep your enemies closer

Strange and deranged
Seek fame was the name of the game
Defeat rivals Abel and Kane
Get trophies they'll look great in a frame
What would you have done, take all the blame?
With your hands held firm over naked flames
Being grilled now you're shaking again
Faking the pain, dark visions of Satan
Contemplating, talking man to man
She was a girl on film Duran Duran
She called me her ape man orang-utan
Me Tarzan, she Jane
Take all the blame I'm the bloke in the chorus
We were sweet once everybody saw us
I ain't flawless still unsure
I loved us but I loved me more

You used to be the one true thing in my world
You told me that you loved me
You're in love with yourself
Shoulda listen to my mother
You messed around the others
Now you're dead to me
I've been sleeping with the enemy
Should keep your best friends close by
Should keep your best friends close by
You should keep your best friends close by
But keep your enemies closer
But keep your enemies closer

    My InterpretationI always thought of the song talking about a past relationship where the other partner had done something very unfaithful. Being blinded by love, unable to see the real person.

    "Shoulda listen to my mother
    You messed around the others
    Now you're dead to me
    I've been sleeping with the enemy "

    I could relate to those lines a lot.
