Too Close Lyrics

You know I'm not one to break promises
I don't want to hurt you but I need to breathe
At the end of it all, you're still my best friend
But there's something inside that I need to release
Which way is right, which way is wrong
How do I say that I need to move on
You know we have is separate way

And it feels like I am just too close to love you
There's nothing I can really say
I can't lie no more, I can't hide no more
Got to be true to myself
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
So I'll be on my way

You gave me more that I can return
Yet there's so much that you deserve
Nothing to say, nothing to do,
I've nothing to give
I must leave without you

You know we have is separate way

And it feels like I am just too close to love you
There's nothing I can really say
I can't lie no more, I can't hide no more
Got to be true to myself
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
So I'll be on my way

So I'll be on my way

And it feels like I am just too close to love you
There's nothing that I can really say
I can't lie no more, I can't hide no more
Got to be true to myself
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
So I'll be on my way

So I'll be on my way
So I'll be on my way

Obviously it's a breakup song with the guy trying to soften the blow by wanting to stay best friends, acknowledging that she needs and deserves more and he has nothing to offer, but the essential truth is that while he says he can't lie any more ("no more"), he has been lying. Probably the only thing he isn't lying about is his need to breathe and be on his way. Or I'm just projecting the lies of my ex "soul mate" onto the author and Quint is right.

The one thing I know is that there's a blatant error in the line "You know we have...separate way" It says "is", which makes no sense at all. If you LISTEN to the song, he sings, "You know we have OUR separate ways." But as with other songs, it's impossible to edit the lyrics to correct the error! Extremely annoying. What's next? "She loves you yes yes yes?"

Great beat-stupid lyrics.Sounds like someone self-indulgent and cowardly redirecting blame for the end of a relationship onto a partner who hasn't really hurt them or done anything wrong.In real life, probz would be more polite to say: Sorry, i was mistaken. I never loved you. Sorry to waste your ti

I can't thank you enough for all that you have done for me. About a year ago I my partner split up, we had both made BIG mistakes in our relationship. He ended up moving away from me to pursue a new life. I knew in my heart that he would be the only one to make me happy. I was relieved when I foun

You guys are stupid. It clearly tells that he is too close to this guy or girl to actually be in love with them. And that he's not even good enough to be her man, that she deserves better. And that he's going to go his separate way from her to help her get over him.
