The song "Closer" by Ne-Yo made me stops in my tracks when I started listening to it. Something in the lyrics got to me. I think it was the chorus that says "And I just cant pull myself away under her spell I cant break I just cant stop I just cant stop and I cant break myself no way but I don't want to escape I just cant stop I just cant stop." These lyrics spoke to me because they reminded me of someone who said they couldn't pull away and they didn't want to escape. The second time I heard this song I really listened this time it made me sad because of the memories that came back. I can relate to the author of the lyrics because this person couldn't pull away and couldn't stop loving the person they were talking about. I thought this song was amazing because it actually tells about a real life story not everything has to be about drugs, money, and sex. It can be about so much more. I give props to Ne-Yo for being able to pull of the song.
