Tender - Closer Still Lyrics




Baby, did I go and disappoint you again?
I know when I've been stupid
And you try to hide the fire in your eyes

Girl, I've told you once before
And I can't tell you again
If I left you wanting more
Why would you pretend?

You tell me you're the best I'll get
Just don't know how to treat you yet
You pin me down, I'll make you let
Me do what I like
And, baby, you might
Even learn to like the way
I get so close to say your name
Oh maybe we'll learn to ride that wave
You could give it time
You'd learn to be mine

In my defense
I've been changed by another
Lost friends and gain a lover
At my expense
I've hurt and lost a brother
Oh gently bein' smothered

Girl, I've told you once before
And I can't tell you again
If I left you wanting more
Why would you pretend?

You tell me you're the best I'll get
Just don't know how to treat you yet
You pin me down, I'll make you let
Me do what I like
And, baby, you might
Even learn to like the way
I get so close to say your name
Oh maybe we'll learn to ride that wave
You could give it time
You'd learn to be mine

Drown me
Bend my will
I can only feel that push and pull
Bring me closer still
Oh bring me closer still

You tell me you're the best I'll get
Just don't know how to treat you yet
You pin me down, I'll make you let
Me do what I like
And, baby, you might
Even learn to like the way
I get so close to say your name
Oh maybe we'll learn to ride that wave
You could give it time
You'd learn to be mine

Drown me
Bend my will
I can only feel that push and pull
Bring me closer still
Oh bring me closer still

  16. Romaunt Rose

    This song speaks to me in volumes. The feeling of the push and pull, being so caught up on a single person that you’d give anything despite how bad it might get and somehow only feeling closer to them.
