hold me close lyrics – beautiful south

[incomprehensible]

there’s something very english about ‘forever’
‘hugs and kisses’ are english too
‘forever and a day’ has to be american
but ‘hold me, close’ is me and you, ‘hold me, close’ is me and you

so pilots do it in the air
and surfers do it, wave after wave
but soon, they’ll be looking limp and lifeless
we’ll still be at it in our grave

(so, hold me close, underground)
i’ll be there, i’ll wait for you
in with the old and out with the new

(so, hold me close, underground)
i’ll be there, i’ll wait for you
in with the old and out with the new
in with the old, out with the new

‘man and wife’ just doesn’t suit us
‘just us two’ is hardly true
i couldn’t care about ‘mr and mrs’
but ‘you and i’ is me and you, ‘you and i’ is me and you

potholers do it with the lights off
and hikers do it long and slow
i’ll still be trying to get your clothes off
when i lie six foot below

(so, hold me close, underground)
i’ll be there, i’ll wait for you
in with the old and out with the new

(hold me close, underground)
i’ll be there, i’ll wait for you
in with the old and out with the new

(hold me close, underground)
i’ll be there, i’ll wait for you
in with the old and out with the new

(hold me close, underground)
i’ll be there, i’ll wait for you
in with the old and out with the new
in with the old, out with the new

when it’s turned too overbearing
you and i will still be here
when it’s turned too overbearing
you and i will still be here

you and i will still be here
you and i will still be here
you and i will still be here
you and i will still be here
