Meaning, Main Idea, and Message of The Song
Based on the lyric of the song above, I conclude that this song tells us about a man's decision to leave his lover. The decision is not made because he has another girl. He is not sort of a man who likes to play on girls' heart. It is also not because the girl has affair with another man. No. Both of them are faithful to each other. And more, they never hurt each other.
So, what is it that makes the man decides to end their love? The possible answer is implicitly explained in the first line of the third verse, the fourth line of the first verse, and the second line of the first verse. Combined the lines go as follow: 'You're giving me more that I can return,' 'but there's something inside that I need to release'. 'I don't want to hurt you, but I need to breathe'. Based on these two lines, I conclude that it is because the man feels that the girl is possessive so that he feels confined. He knows that his girl is too nice to him. But, he realizes that the 'too' has left him no space to breathe. Therefore, to me the line 'Yet there's oh so much that you deserve' is a satire to the girl.
Well, that's my interpretation of Alex Clare's Too Close song. What do you have in mind?
