Kele - Closer Lyrics

22nd of Loneliness
I know what's not being said
Fall asleep in my clothes again
On your side of the bed
Underneath an open window
You'll find me biding my time
Howling and empty-hearted
Cause you're not here

[Chorus - Jodie Scantlebury:]
In your absence, I unravel
In your absence, I am gone
So go easy on this heart, time to love or fall apart
In your absence, I unravel
I need you closer
I need you back here in my life
I need you closer (closer)
I need you closer

23rd of Loneliness
Our secrets stopped being shared
Walk the streets on my own again
With your laughter in my head
In every face I see, there's you, there's you
These wounds stay open and raw
In every voice I hear, there's you, there's you
But you're not here

Kele Closer Comments
  1. resolnator

    This album is so amazing, I’ve only recently discovered it and I didn’t realize there were videos even.

  2. Black Sunshine

    Such a strong, consistent album. Kele shows his knowledge and appreciation of British beat driven music extremely well on this album and manages to make the transition from Bloc Party's work to the garage/dance/electronica sound of the album easy for Bloc Party fans to digest while also welcoming fans unaware of his previous musical endeavors largely thanks to his unique vocal and song arrangements. A truly hidden gem. Highly recommended.
