Too Close by Alex Clare.

Posted on the 13 February 2013 by Melodicwisdom

And it feels like I am just too close to love you, there’s nothing I can really say. I can’t lie no more, I can’t hide no more, got to be true to myself. And it feels like I am just too close to love you, so I’ll be on my way.

Sounds like a typical guy thing to say, doesn’t it? How can you be “too close” to love someone? Only a male can come up with that excuse, right?

Too Close was released in the UK in April of 2011 from Clare’s debut album, The Lateness of the Hour. In March 2012, the single was selected by Microsoft for a commercial promoting Internet Explorer 9. This exposure made the song popular and it peaked at #4 in the UK and at #7 on Billboard’s Hot 100. It was later certified double platinum by the RIAA.

The lyrics describe a man who is not ready for a committed relationship but wants to end things on good terms. Above is the official music video. A brief ad may play before the video starts.
