Closer lyrics

The Corrs
Thumbnail

I see you, walking everyday
With a smile beneath frown
But I won't look away, yeah
What does it mean
What's there to see
If I look

Closer, closer... Closer, closer
Closer, closer... Closer, closer

Where are you going
And what are you thinking at all
Your eyes show nothing more
Than a dazed oblivion
What does it mean
What will I see
When I look

Closer, closer... Closer, closer
Closer, closer... Closer, closer
Yeah

You don't see me
Watching everyday
My smile could warm your frown
And I'd never look away... (never look away)
There's more to me... (there's more to me)
Than what you see
When you look

Closer, closer... Closer, closer
Closer, closer... Closer, closer

(Closer) Clo - o - o - ser (Closer), Closer, closer...
Yeah - eh...Yeah - yeah
Yeah - yeah- yeah... Yeah - yeah
Closer, closer... Closer, no-no...
Yeah - yeah- yeah...

Song Details

Closer was released as a single in May 1997 from the 1996 debut album - Forgiven, Not Forgotten

The song is about the singer observing someone they see walking every day with a smile beneath their frown. They wonder where the person is going and what they're thinking. The singer believes there's more to them than what meets the eye, and they express their desire to look closer and get to know the person better.
