Lyrics for Close To You by Dayglow:

Verse 1
I saw you looking for the side door
You didn't want to stick around for
The rest of the night
I guess that's alright

They all left when you walked home
It makes sense that they all know
It was only for you
If only you knew

Pre-Chorus
What good is love
Without any strings?
Held it above
Stuck in between
Tell me for once
What that even means
I want to know you
But can't make it right

Chorus
There's something on my mind
There's something that I
(Wish I would've told you, but you just don't seem to wonder what you're doing when you're close to me)
Oh, yeah
Therе's something on my chest
I wish I would've said
(I think it ovеr and it might be true
I'm only overthinking when I'm close to you)

Verse 2
We locked eyes from a distance
So close but I missed it
Now you're walking away
When I wish you would stay

I get stuck in a conversation
A different night, same situation
I'm beating myself up
For not speaking up

Every night I can't make it right, yeah

Chorus
There's something on my mind
There's something that I
(Wish I would've told you, but you just don't seem to wonder what you're doing when you're close to me)
Oh, yeah
There's something on my chest
I wish I would've said
(I think it over and it might be true
I'm only overthinking when I'm close to you)

Outro
Only overthinking when I'm close to you
I'm only overthinking when I'm close to you
I'm only overthinking when I'm close to you (Oh yeah)
I'm only overthinking when I'm close to you
I'm only overthinking when I'm close to you
I'm only overthinking when I'm close to you (Oh yeah)

Song Facts

“Close To You” was released as a single in January 2021 and was Dayglow’s first track since the re-release of his album Fuzzybrain in 2019. The song was written as a duet but ultimately recorded as a solo, which the lead singer Sloan Struble explained on his Instagram:

The song itself is about the tension between two people at a party that never said hello. It’s about the excitement and perfect fantasy you play in your head prior to seeing that person, the mediocre and nervous reality of the actual moment you see them, and the let down that always comes afterwards, it not being what had always and only been living in your head. I envision the song being played inside someone’s brain— kind of like the movie “Inside Out”- after they are leaving a party, thinking about what they wish would have happened. But in reality, they are actually just singing to and about themselves.
