As Close as This Lyrics

by Polly Jean Harvey

With those eyes
You could be
In movies
In the lights

Nothing gets as close as this

With those eyes
Just a breath
Can send me back
To bethlehem

Nothing gets as close as this
I'm hopelessly devoted

This world's alive
This room awake
With tiger's palms and rattlesnakes

And nothing gets as close as this
I'm hopelessly devoted

Every bird
Is on the wing
You fill the air
You're everything

Make me run screaming
Down the wind
Hopelessly
In love again

And nothing gets as close as this
I'm hopelessly devoted
Nothing gets as close as this
I'm hopelessly devoted
