Kendall Payne: to listen

Closer

(Kendall Payne)
Written by Kendall Payne & Regina Williams
I am alone,
Misunderstood,
All I can bring
Is my honesty.
When you’re around
I cannot be beautiful,
‘Cause you are blind to see
And you choose what to believe.

Please come closer, please come closer,
So you found out where I’m weak.
Please come closer, please come closer,
There’s so much more to me.

If there’s a chance
That you’d forgive
All my mistakes
I’d let you in.
But you can’t let go
Of what you think of me,
And so I fear
That’s who I’ll always be.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah….
All this time I’ve been on the outside looking in;
All I ever wanted was a friend;
All this time you’ve been on the outside looking in.
