Cage the Elephant - Come a Little Closer

[Verse 1]
Time shakes, found you at the water
At first you were my father, and now I love you like a brother
Earthquakes shake the dust behind you
This world at times will blind you
Still I know I'll see you there

[Chorus]
Come a little closer then you'll see
Come on, come on, come on
Things aren’'t always what they seem to be
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things that you've been seeing
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things that you've been dreaming
Come a little closer then you'll see

[Verse 2]
Heartbreaks, the heavy world's upon your shoulders
Will we burn or we just smolder
So now I know I found you there
Mmm, wanna see if you can change it, change it
Still I know I'll see you there

[Chorus]
Come a little closer, then you'll see
Come on, come on, come on
Things aren'’t always what they seem to be
Do you understand the things that you've been seeing
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things that you’'ve been dreaming
Come a little closer then you'll see
Come a little closer then you'll see

[Bridge]
Ten thousand people stand alone now
And in the evening the sun sets
Tomorrow it will rise
Time flies by, they all sing along
Time flies by, they all sing along
Time flies by, they all sing along
Time flies by, by

[Chorus]
Come a little closer then you'll see
Come on, come on, come on
Come a little closer then you'll see
Come a little closer then you'll see
Come a little closer then you'll see

"Come a Little Closer" is a song by American rock band Cage the Elephant. Written by lead singer Matthew Shultz and produced by Jay Joyce, it was released as the lead single from the band's third studio album "Melophobia" on August 13, 2013. It topped the Billboard Alternative Songs chart in the United States, giving the band their fourth number-one hit on the chart. Cage the Elephant lead singer Matthew Shultz wrote "Come a Little Closer", taking inspiration from an occasion in which he woke up in a São Paulo hotel in the early morning and opened his window to watch the sunrise over the favelas. Finding the makeshift housing comparable to an anthill, he soon found himself wondering what each soul inside each borough felt, whether it be heartache, love, loss or joy. The music video for "Come a Little Closer" was directed by Matthew Shultz and released on November 12, 2013. A mix of animation and live-action footage, it depicts the members of Cage the Elephant being transported to an alien planet and trying to escape from several monstrous beings, and in Schultz's case, having to navigate out of the stomach of a giant whale and evade being devoured by a group of birds. Schultz then rides a flaming lion and makes his way to a different planet made of skulls, traveling into its core and managing to escape death by destroying it. Scenes of the band performing the song is interspersed throughout.
