Closer Lyrics

Hey, I was doing just fine before I met you
I drink too much and that's an issue but I'm okay
Hey, you tell your friends it was nice to meet them
But I hope I never see them again

I know it breaks your heart
Moved to the city in a broke down car
And four years, no calls
Now you're looking pretty in a hotel bar
And I I I can't stop
No, I I I can't stop

So baby, pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
That I know you can't afford
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Of the mattress that you stole
From your roommate back in Boulder
We ain't ever getting older

We ain't ever getting older
We ain't ever getting older

You look as good as the day I met you
I forget just why I left you, I was insane
Stay and play that blink-182 song
That we beat to death in Tucson, okay

I know it breaks your heart
Moved to the city in a broke down car
And four years, no call
Now I'm looking pretty in a hotel bar
And I I I can't stop
No, I I I can't stop

So baby, pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
That I know you can't afford
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Of the mattress that you stole
From your roommate back in Boulder
We ain't ever getting older

We ain't ever getting older
We ain't ever getting older

So baby, pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
That I know you can't afford
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Of the mattress that you stole
From your roommate back in Boulder
We ain't ever getting older
We ain't ever getting older (no, we ain't ever getting older)
We ain't ever getting older (no, we ain't ever getting older)
We ain't ever getting older (we ain't ever getting older)
We ain't ever getting older (no, we ain't ever getting older)

We ain't ever getting older
No, we ain't ever getting older

What is the Meaning of Closer?

This track offers a poignant reflection on the nostalgia of youthful love and the complexities of growing older. It juxtaposes past memories with present realities, as the protagonists grapple with their feelings for each other despite time and distance. The lyrics convey a sense of longing and regret, underscored by references to materialistic symbols such as a Rover or stolen mattress. Ultimately, the refrain "we ain't ever getting older" suggests an escapist desire to return to simpler times, even if it's just an illusion. This song resonates with listeners due to its relatable themes of lost love, youth, and the inexorable passage of time. #Nostalgia #LostLove #YouthAndTime
