I will you to me like a river
Wash away all the war paint from your face

I want you to be happy
I want you to be safe

I waited for you like a lion
Lay you down
Weigh me down
You make my limbs ache

I want you to be near me
I want you to escape

So much closer to me
So much closer to me
So much closer to me
Closer

Summertime in the heat
Summer dive in the sheets
Waterslide into me
Come closer

My body's holding you for ransom
Gotta make it happen
Honey's gotta get paid

I want you at an angle
I want you face to face

You burn like motorcycle blue
I love the way you do it
Like it down the freeway

I need you like confession
I need you like a faith

So much closer to me
So much closer to me
So much closer to me
Closer

Summertime in the heat
Summer dive in the sheets
Waterslide into me
Come closer
Hey
Hey
Hey
Hey
