ASIA lyrics - The Closer I Get To You (Acoustic)

ASIA
"The Closer I Get To You (Acoustic)"

I can't begin to make no sense of it all
Maybe I don't try enough
But there is nothing that I wouldn't do
I would beg, I would plead for our love

I want to know if you're just tired of me
Or have we just grown apart?
Our existence is just floating at sea
Cut adrift from the people we are

There is no answer, no question, no lie
I'm losing count of days passing by
It's like cancer, it's consuming my soul
Nothing there, nothing left, should I die

You can't see, what you do to me, if you did
Then you might even try
I cannot breathe, no way to proceed
And I ain't got what I need to get by

The closer I get to you
The further you push me away
I don't know what to do
I just don't know what to say

The closer I get to you
The further you push me away
I don't know what to do
I just don't know what to say

I walk the street 'cos I don't wanna go home
I know that something's so wrong
I guess I just can't face the truth of it all
And admit it's been dead for so long

If I could then I would sit with you now
To talk, and try to make sense
And summon every ounce of courage I have
But I can't, for the fear is immense

Don't even need to know a reason for this
Just leave it all in the past
Or I will tumble down into the abyss
And this breath that I take is my last

You can't see, what you do to me, if you did
Then you might even try
I cannot breathe, no way to proceed
And I ain't got what I need to get by

The closer I get to you
The further you push me away
I don't know what to do
I just don't know what to say

The closer I get to you
The further you push me away
I don't know what to do
I just don't know what to say

The closer I get to you
The further you push me away
I don't know what to do
I just don't know what to say
