Annotations and Meaning of Close To You:

I don't got a single problem with provocative
See the bodies, how they burn, it's just the way it is
In the first verse, Abrams confronts the provocative nature of modern relationships and the intensity of emotions that come with them. The imagery of burning bodies suggests a passionate but destructive connection.
And you don't even know my name
If you asked me to
I'd give up everything
The pre-chorus reveals a deep, unreciprocated longing. The singer is willing to sacrifice everything for a chance to be with the object of her affection, even though they barely know each other.
To be close to you
Pull the trigger on the gun I gave you when we met
In the chorus, Abrams uses a metaphor of a gun to describe the power dynamics in the relationship. The desire to be close comes with risks, and the "trigger" symbolizes the potential for emotional harm.
You pull me in and touch my neck, and now I'm dying
You should be mine for life, I'll be signing
The second verse portrays a physical and emotional attraction that feels overwhelming and all-consuming. The mention of "signing" suggests a commitment that the singer is eager to make, despite the intensity of the relationship.

Close To You Song Lyrics

Close To You by Gracie Abrams


(Close to you)
(Close to you)

[Verse 1]
I don't got a single problem with provocative
See the bodies, how they burn, it's just the way it is
Smoky, dark, crowded room, I need nothing
Under pink light in June (Ahh)
I was so cool, but then, all of a sudden
You saw me look at you

[Pre-Chorus]
I burn for you
And you don't even know my name
If you asked me to
I'd give up everything

[Chorus]
To be close to you
Pull the trigger on the gun I gave you when we met
I wanna be close to you
Break my heart and start a fire, you got me overnight
Just let me be

[Post-Chorus]
Close to you, close to you, close to you
(Just let me be) Oh, close to you, close to you, close to you
[Verse 2]
And now your mouth is moving, cinematic timing
You pull me in and touch my neck, and now I'm dying
You should be mine for life, I'll be signing
Every dotted line (Ahh)
Chemical override, ultraviolet
You could be mine tonight

[Pre-Chorus]
And I burn for you
And you don't even know my name
If you asked me to
I'd give you everything

[Chorus]
To be close to you
Pull the trigger on the gun I gave you when we met
I wanna be close to you
Break my heart and start a fire, you got me overnight
Just let me be

[Post-Chorus]
Close to you, close to you, close to you
(Just let me be) Oh, close to you, close to you, close to you

[Bridge]
I burn for you
Mm
[Chorus]
To be close to you
Pull the trigger on the gun I gave you when we met
I wanna be close to you
Break my heart and start a fire, you got me overnight
Just let me be

[Post-Chorus]
Close to you (To you), close to you (To you)
Close to you (To you, just let me be close)
Oh, close to you (Ooh), close to you (To you)
Close to you (Just let me be)
Oh, close to you (Ahh), close to you (Ahh)
Close to you (Just let me be)

[Outro]
Oh, close to you, close to you
Close to you
