I want you close, I want you.
I won’t treat you like you’re typical.
All I want to get is - a little bit closer.
All I want to know is, can you come a little closer?
If you follow me on Twitter, you probably already know about my love for Tegan & Sara's new album, Hearthtrob. If you don't - you guys - it's so good. (Not my Twitter, the album.) I seriously cannot stop listening to it. As you might guess from the title, the whole thing is romantically themed with a kick-ass dance beat nearly all the way through.
I've already singled out "I Was a Fool" and "I Couldn't Be Your Friend" as favorites along with "Closer," selected above. This song in particular really guts me - mostly because the lyrics so exactly tap into that feeling of crazy attraction to someone who's just out of arm's reach.
We've all been there, right? You're looking at that person across the room, across the bar and you just want to scream, "Get over here!" That dance... the build-up... it can be the best. "Here comes the heat, before we meet / a little bit closer."
Dang, I'm hot and bothered just thinking about it. Anyway, I thought this song was totally appropriate for this week before that most glorious of romantic holidays... Wait, what?
