Beautiful South – Hold Me Close lyrics

(heaton/rotheray)
There's something very english about 'forever'
'hugs and kisses' are english too
'forever and a day' has to be american
But 'hold me close' is me and you
'hold me close' is me and you

So pilots do it in the air
And surfers do it wave after wave
But soon they'll be looking limp and lifeless
We'll still be at it in our grave


Hold me close, underground
Hold me close, underground
I'll be there, i'll wait for you
In with the old, out with the new

'man and wife' just doesn't suit us
'just us two' is hardly true
I couldn't care about mr and mrs
But 'you and i' is me and you
'you and i' is me and you

Potholers do it with the lights off
Hikers do it long and slow
I'll still be trying to get your clothes off
When i lie 6ft below

Hold me close, underground
Hold me close, underground
I'll be there, i'll wait for you
In with the old, out with the new


I'll be there, i'll wait for you
Hold me close, underground
In with the old, out with the new
Hold me close, underground

When it's turned to overbearing
You and i will still be here
