Louis The Child – Too Close Lyrics

Too Close By Louis The Child (ft. Wrabel)


We used to say
Maybe one day there’d be more to this friendship
But we always say s--- like
“At forty-five, if we’re both single
I’d get you that diamond and propose at that diner”

We say it as a joke
But, honestly, it gets to me
And everybody knows
We’ve been like this since seventeen
And I don’t let you know
It kills me every time he takes you home
Oh, yeah

‘Cause it feels like we’re just
Too close, too close for comfort
How can I be your friend when I wanna be your lover?
Too close, too close for comfort
How can I be your friend when I wanna be your lover?

I want you, I want you
I want you, I want you
(You, you, you, you)

I wish you’d deceive me, I wish you would lie
To make this thing easier on me and my mind
I need some space, and you’re wondering why
Don’t know what to say, and I’d rather not try

We say it as a joke
But, honestly, it gets to me
And everybody knows
We’ve been like this since seventeen
I never let it show
It kills me every time he takes you home
Oh, yeah

‘Cause it feels like we’re just
Too close, too close for comfort
How can I be your friend when I wanna be your lover?
Too close, too close for comfort
How can I be your friend when I wanna be your lover?

Too close, too close for comfort
(You, you, you, you)

I want you, I want you
You want another
I want you, I want you
You want another
I want you, I want you
You want another

It feels like we’re just
Too close, too close for comfort
How can I be your friend when I wanna be your lover?
Too close, too close for comfort
(Too close for comfort)
Too close, too close for comfort
How can I be your friend when I wanna be your lover?
Too close, too close for comfort
(We’re too close for comfort)
