I may do things you don't understand
But remember I'm only doing the best I can
Every little thing I do
I'm trying to get closer to you

Nearer, nearer...

I'm sorry if I seem a little bit stubborn sometimes
I hope I'm not being a nuisance to you
I know you say that you'd be home soon
I've got to be nearer, nearer to you

Every deed I do
I'm trying to get closer to you

Nearer, nearer...

I know you say that you'd be home soon
I've got to be nearer, nearer to you
I've got to be nearer, nearer to you
I've got to be nearer, nearer to you
