Slow down, lie down
Remember it's just you and me
Don't sell out, bow out
Remember how this used to be
I just want you closer, is that alright?
Baby let's get closer, tonight

[Chorus]
Grant my last request and just let me hold you, don't shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there
Lay down beside me, ohhh

I've found that I'm bound to wander down that long way road, ohhh
And I realize all about your lies,
But I'm no wiser than the fool that I was before.
I just want you closer, is that alright?
Baby let's get closer, tonight.

[Chorus]
Grant my last request and just let me hold you, don't shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there oooh
Lay down beside me, ohhh

Baby, baby, baby
Tell me how can, how can this be wrong?

[Chorus]
Grant my last request and just let me hold you, don't shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there
Lay down beside me, ohhh

[Chorus]
Grant my last request and just let me hold you, don't shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there
Lay down beside me, ohhh

Ooohhhh wohhhhohhh, yeah
Lay down beside me
One last time let's go there,
Lay down beside me.

    He has broken up with his girlrfiend and he really misses the feeling of laying next to someone, he's asking if she would lay down beside him for one last time so that he can try and accept that it isn't going anywhere and maybe that one last time will help him move on and get some kind of closure. Alternatively he may be hoping that if he gets her to lay down beside him again it might make her change her mind and get back with him.
