remember keys
                  Bbm            Db
Now I'm thinking maybe, I was stoned
           Ab                  F
I felt my feet lift off the ground
                  Bbm
And my heart was screaming
        Db
At my bones
           Gb
I need you closer


                 Bbm           Db
As he's in the middle of the street
         Ab                    F
Then I pretend he is mine to keep
                  Bbm     
Cars are running fast on both sides
Db             
of his head, his eyes say
Gb      Bbm    Gb
Closer closer closer


                    Bbm 
I met him when the sun was down
     Db       
The bar was closed
    Ab               F
We both have had no sleep
                     Bbm 
My face beneath the street lamp
    Db                 Ab            Gb
it reveals what it is lonely people seek
 Bbm     Gb
Closer closer
Bbm      Gb     Eb 
Closer closer 


            Db              Gb
And you're close enough to lose
Bbm                     Gb                       Ab
Close to the point, to where you know that your mind,
           Gb
it cannot choose
Db               Gb
Close enough to lose.
Bbm      Ab
Close enough
    Gb       Ab
to lose you heart


                  Bbm          Db
Now I'm thinking maybe, I was stoned
           Ab                 F
I felt my feet lift off the ground
                   Bbm
And my heart was screaming
        Db
At my bones
            Gb
I need you closer

 
                    Bbm
You met me when the sun was down
         Db
and the bar was closed
     Ab               F 
We both have had no sleep
                     Bbm
My face beneath the street lamp
     Db                Gb
it reveals what it is lonely people seek
Bbm      Gb     
Closer closer 
Bbm     Gb        Eb
Closer closer


           Db               Gb
And you're close enough to lose
Bbm                    Gb                     Ab
Close to the point, where you know that your mind, 
            Gb
it can not choose
Db               Gb
Close enough to lose.
Bbm    Ab
Close enough
    Gb    Gbm Ab
to lose your heart.
