Tell me a joke and I'll laugh real loud
But I can't remember one to tell you
I remember your eyes
are the prettiest of green
In the darkness I still see you

You're such a gentleman
as I'm tossing and turning
Hoping you'll make the first move
But the rising and falling of your breathing
Is something I could get used to...

CHORUS:
Come closer to me, come closer to me,
closer, closer, hey
Come closer to me, come closer to me,
closer, hey, hey

So for now I'll count
the palm trees outside
And pretend I'm in a Mexican dawn
And I'll frame the constellations
in your window
Oh, the waiting can seem so long

CHORUS:
Come closer to me, come closer to me,
closer, closer, hey
Come closer to me, come closer to me,
closer, hey hey

BRIDGE:
Maybe I'll play hard to get
Even though I don't like playing games
But people want what they can't have
As strange, strange as that seems

I'm no Alice in Wonderland
So forgive me for wanting to know
What the next chapter will bring
And which well we will spring
And which direction we will go

CHORUS:
Come closer to me, come closer to me,
closer, closer, hey
Come closer to me, come closer to me,
closer, hey hey (2x)

Closer... closer to me
