Closer Lyrics

( male )Hey
I was doing just fine before I met you
I drink too much and that's an issue but I'm okay.
Tell your friends it was nice to meet them
but I hope I never see them again
I know it breaks your heart,
moved to the city in a...

    It's about truelove that happened to him in the past. Amd both of them still have feelings for themselves, none of them had moved ahead in their lives and they still have strong feelings for each other. Both feel taht it's the other person's fault that they had to broke up. Financial gap was the main problem for their separation. But for them their sex life is more important and they recall every moment of their making out and still have a deep desire to have sex with each other. Thus love can never be ended due to harsh circumstances!

    The song closer is by the chainsmokers and Halsey. This song In the first verse, Andrew Taggart (one of the two members of The Chainsmokers) sings, "Hey, I was doing just fine before I met you / I drink too much and that's an issue but I'm okay." He's setting a scene in which he sees an old friend (who we'll find out later is an ex-girlfriend). He acknowledges that part of the problem their relationship didn't work out was because he would get drunk. He knows it's wrong, but he wants to not talk about it for now.
    He continues, "Hey, you tell your friends it was nice to meet them / But I hope I never see them again." She's out with some of her friends when he sees her, and he doesn't care about her friends at all. He's only curious about her for the moment.

    Its about a love story which was started 4 years ago.And then when they look each other it dates back to what happend between them,when they were in a relationship.
    And he (the boy)regrets of living the girl.And also this shows song that after four years,they have a bit of feeling for each other.

    Sometimes, people who have exes, should try to make up something for them, but they can say that they wanna be friends, but not getting back together. Just because someone who have dated and that person turned into an ex, doesn’t mean that exes are evil. They aren’t from the devil, they just have a hard time and thinking of the horrible times they have done. Sometimes when fans ship a couple, they are just too stubborn to admit who the real couple can be. They might say “this ship’s so cute!” “They are good parents” “We need two people who look the same, act the same, and who have rational and caring skills”. Not every couple can be the same, some can be special, some can be adorable, some can be intelligent, some can be stressing, some can be lusty, some can be sexual, some can be amazing, and some can be different people who can be united into a couple (not being racist, just saying). I believe in my opinion, that if these couples can have true joy, true love, and true happiness, they can have a good future, I just know it. Can they be back together? Can they make a truce? Can they be in love? Stop living in the past, it’s not like Boss Baby you know. It’s not the all usual, weird, messy, and caring parents we have, but I might want to ok on that. Goodbye

    I think it is about A boy and a girl in a relationship, and then they brake up and they both are upset that they are not together anymore.
