Nick Jonas – Close lyrics

[Verse 1: Nick Jonas]
Oh damn, oh damn, oh damn
I'm so perplexed
With just one breath, I'm locked in
Oh damn, oh damn, oh damn
I'm so perplexed
On that, it's almost shocking
I know, I know you know you're scared
Your heart, your mind, your soul, your body
They won't, they won't, they won't be careful
But I guess that you don't know me

[Pre-Chorus: Nick Jonas]
Cause if I want you, and I want you, babe
Ain't going backwards, won't ask for space
Cause space is just a word made up by someone who's afraid to get too...

[Chorus: Nick Jonas]
Close, ooh
Oh, so close, ooh
I want you close, ooh
Cause space is just a word made up by someone who's afraid to get close, ooh
Oh, so close, ooh
I want you close, ooh
Oh, I want you close, and close ain't close enough, no


[Verse 2: Tove Lo]
Oh man, oh man
I am not really known for ever being speechless
But now, but now somehow
My words roll off my tongue right onto your lips, oh
I'm keeping cool while you keep smiling
Saying all the things I'm thinking
Oh man, oh man
I am like you so I want proof of what you're feeling

[Pre-Chorus: Tove Lo]
Cause if I want you, and I want you, babe
Ain't going backwards, won't ask for space
Cause space is just a word made up by someone who's afraid to get too...

[Chorus: Both]
Close, ooh
Oh, so close, ooh
I want you close, ooh
Cause space was just a word made up by someone who's afraid to get close, ooh
Oh, so close, ooh
I want you close, ooh
Oh, I want you close, and close ain't close enough, no

[Pre-Chorus: Nick Jonas, Both]
Cause if I want you, and I want you, babe
Ain't going backwards, won't ask for space

Cause space was just a word made up by someone who's afraid to get too... close

[Chorus: Both]
Close, ooh
Oh, so close, ooh
I want you close, ooh
Cause space was just a word made up by someone who's afraid to get close, ooh
Oh, so close, ooh
I want you close, ooh
Oh, I want you close, and close ain't close enough, no
Oh, I want you close, and close ain't close enough, no

    I feel as if this song is about two people wanting each other to connect emotionally and mentally so bad that even when they're "close" they would still feel like they are missing something; they want each other but they are afraid of getting too close of getting hurt however they will still take the risk and be together, I feel like there are some barriers in their relationship because even though they're close they still feel the need to get more closer therefore this could be due to being together but not feeling that intimate, emotional connection hence they say "I want you close, but close ain't close enough", something is missing, they feel empty in their love as if they need to get more close to repair their broken love.
