Too Close For Comfort

"Too Close For Comfort"

Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

We've never met but we've seen each other around

You remember me whether you admit it or not

I know you do, from the look each time on your face

I know that look when I see it, and from you I see it a lot

And now by chance, here we are again

Neither one knows the right thing to say

And now by chance, weโ€™re together again

The closer we get, the more nervous and afraid, now

Too close for comfort, do you wish that I was yours? whoa

Too close for comfort, do you wanna get even more? whoa

Too close for comfort, are you gonna make the first move? whoa

Too close for comfort, are you thinkinโ€™ what Iโ€™m thinkinโ€™ too? whoa, whoa

I've seen the way you've undressed me with your eyes

Can't take them off me, even though you try to look away

I've seen your sheepish grin, and the way you can't hold it back

You may not think I notice, but it makes my day

And now by chance, here we are again

Neither one knows the right thing to say

And now by chance, weโ€™re together again

The closer we get, the more nervous and afraid, now

Too close for comfort, do you wish that I was yours? whoa

Too close for comfort, do you wanna get even more? whoa

Too close for comfort, are you gonna make the first move? whoa

Too close for comfort, are you thinkinโ€™ what Iโ€™m thinkinโ€™ too? whoa, whoa

Stuck together on an elevator

We smiled at each other and with an angel above my head

Think I'm in love again

Walking past each other on the sidewalk

We smiled at each other and with the devil above my head

I think I want you in bed

Running into each other down at the store

I sold my soul so I could see you some more

I only want more

You're the devil and I want you

You turned me into the devil too

And now by chance, here we are again

Neither one knows the right thing to say

And now by chance, weโ€™re together again

The closer we get, the more nervous and afraid, now

Too close for comfort, do you wish that I was yours? whoa

Too close for comfort, do you wanna get even more? whoa

Too close for comfort, are you gonna make the first move? whoa

Too close for comfort, are you thinkinโ€™ what Iโ€™m thinkinโ€™ too? whoa, whoa

Too close for comfort, do you wish that you could have me, whoa

Too close for comfort, do you wanna reach out and grab me, whoa

Too close for comfort, all I need is a wink of the eye, whoa

Too close for comfort, if you could only read my mind, whoa, whoa

You gotta admit, the lyrics are so awesome, a great vocalist could nail this. Put down some perfect fake backing tracks, shorten it up a bit, and you've got a hit, right? Maybe not for today, but wait 10 years, and when this type of sound is accepted again, go for it. The opening verse says it all....listen to it again...you'll see what I mean...with this one, I was obviously thinking "the" instead of "a" above my head, there can only be one devil at a time, right? does the attraction "pull" both ways? 'till you make a decison? my religion...casually delivered in a mellow way with such potential for lustful power....
