First single from my upcoming album LIFESTORIES


Baby Let's Get Close

Won't you get close to me
Can't seem to leave your door
Every time I think of you
I just want your body next to mine
Next to mine
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my

Won't you get close to me
Feels I've been here before
Begging for a little love
Come on now, it's not like it's any crime
Any crime
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my

Now that you're close to me
How 'bout we do an encore?
'Cos the spark we create together
Gets me doing things like writing songs in rhyme
Songs in rhyme
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my

Let me get close to you
I wanna see your inside
Open up, share with me what you've got
Let's take a ride
