Close As You'll Ever Be

(I said)
Down at the street around half past nine
I heard someone scream
I found someone dying
His throat was slit from ear to ear
He mumbled so low I could hardly hear
I bent down low so i could hear what he said
He said tell me the truth am I nearly that dead
I said you're close as you'll ever be
Oh yea you're as close as you'll ever be

Down on the beach around half past five
I saw a pretty girl on a deckchair reclining
A grin split her face from ear to ear
I went up close I must have got too near
Cos I never saw the guy on the sea-front cafe
Leaving his seat come and running my way
Saying you're close as you'll ever be
Oh yea you're close as you'll ever be

Get up close to me honey

I said you're close as you'll ever be
I said you're close as you'll ever be
You know you're as close as you'll ever be
Close as you'll ever be

C'mon you're close as you'll ever be
Oh yea you're close as you'll ever be
I said you're close as you'll ever be
Gimme as close as you'll ever be

I Can Make It If You Can

Somewhere a screen door slammed
Somewhere, someplace, somebody's killing a man
Down the road I'm told five people died
And I wonder are you making love to anyone tonight.

Cos she and I, we're still sitting here
Our eyes are dry but we're bored to tears
She said lets talk about the future, lets forget about the past
Did I forget to tell you time never lasts,

CHORUS:
Can I hold on that long
Is it worth the same old stringalong
There's been a few rights but there's plenty wrongs
I can make it if you can.

Don't trust anything, especially love
Be careful of the broken bottles on the wall above.
They burn your brain and they tear at your mind
I know I won't be making love to anyone tonight.

Cos she and I we're still sitting here
Our eyes are dry but we're bored to tears.
Don't talk about the future, please don't talk about the past
Lets forget about the present, it makes me want to laugh.
