Close As Strangers Lyrics

Six weeks since I’ve been away
Now you’re saying everything has changed
And I’m afraid that I might be losing you

And every night that we spent alone
Could be thinking of you on your own
And I wish I was back home next to you

Oh, every...

    I think this song is somehow about a long distance relationship where the guy is someone famous & where the girl is either a normal person or somehow someone who doesn't tour because a lyric stated "every night I'm losing you in a thousand faces". The "thousand faces" refers to fans or people wherever they are. And in this song, the girl is getting sick of the fact that the guy is a world away & she misses him that's why they said that she wants to move on. I think this song is a little like 'Beside You' (also by 5SOS in case you don't know).

    I think this song is connected with "Beside You" since someone said "Luke Hemmings and Aleshia (not sure of the spelling) MacDonald" beacause boy misses her and wants to be beside her because "she sleeps alone, my heart wants to come home". Then later on, they both feel like strangers towards each other because they lost communication as boy goes on tour and girl stays wherever she is.

    He goes on tour and after 6 weeks they lose contact and he misses her but she doesn't call him and he feels like he doesn't know her anymore

    I think this song is about a guy and a girl and one of them goes away for a long time. They are talking about how they haven't seen each other for a long time and they feel like strangers.

    I believe the person in which the songs point of view the song is in has either moved away or left for a long amount of time. Due too lack of contact, the relationship spoken of in the song slowly crumbles. They are limited in time that they can talk due to different time lines. In the end, he goes home but we don't know what happens when he does, if the relationship is fixed

    He goes on a trip and after six weeks they already having doubts in their relationship because they are no longer having enough time for each other anymore but he holds on even though it hurts to much but 6 months later he is finally going home to his girlfriend and try to fix their relationship :)

    a long distance relationship. they start thinking that they can work it out but it's only been a short while and everything has already changed. i think that they're starting to give up on the relationship like in the chorus, "so tell me are we wasting time talking on a broken line". the tour ends, "six months since I've been away but don't worry tomorrow I'll be coming back to you" and he goes home and tries to fix their relationship.

    the bridge, "through the tears I can see that I shouldn't have gone, everyday it gets harder to stay away from you" he somewhat regrets taking the chance to go on tour, because it hurts not to be with her.

    I think this song is about the old/original fans. How we say that they have changed, grown up, and became extremely famous with all their hard work. Yes we are proud of them but saddened that they are no longer our little secret.

    I think that this song is about a guy who travels a lot for long periods of time. His girlfriend back home is starting to have doubts about their relationship but he really wants things to work out. They're starting to talk less and less and the guy is also starting to question their relationship. He feels like he's slowly losing her, but he still "won't give up even though it hurts so much". When he gets home, he knows that things have changed but he's still hoping.

    I think this song is about them going on tour, and they are in a relationship. The girl feels like it's too much, the constant waiting, the countdowns, not being able to be near them, it all builds up and she breaks up with them. Once they come back from tour, they try to get her back.
