(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
