Here Are the Lyrics to Ellie Goulding & Diplo’s “Close to Me,” Feat. Swae Lee

English pop star Ellie Goulding teamed up with Diplo and Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee to create their catchy single “Close to Me.” Released on October 24, 2018, the track has since peaked at No. 18 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

Goulding began promoting the track two days before its premiere, wiping her social media accounts and sharing a cartoon image of the artists’ arms locked in a triangle alongside a titular caption. Shot in Budapest, Hungary, the accompanying music video follows Ellie and Swae through various scenic locations with a group of dancers.

Even though we both know we’re liars and we start each other’s fires
We just know that we’ll be all right
Even though we’re kicked out the party ’cause we both hate everybody
We’re the ones they wanna be like

So don’t let me down
Keep me in trouble
Born to be wild
Out in the jungle

And I don’t wanna be somebody without your body close to me
And if it wasn’t you, I wouldn’t want anybody close to me (yeah, yeah)
‘Cause I’m an animal, animal-al, like animal, like you
And I don’t wanna be somebody without your body close to me (whoo)

You can never come too close for comfort
I had to cut my bitch off, she bein’ stubborn (stubborn)
I make it known I fuck with you, not undercover (‘cover)
And when I jump in, I’m burnin’ rubber (yeah, skrrt)
Iced out body, didn’t go to college (yeah, yeah)
Price tag poppin’, then you on a private (then you on a)
Don’t say “sorry,” everyone’s watchin’ (everyone)
When you’re where I am, everything’s timeless (yeah, yeah)

And I don’t wanna be somebody without your body close to me
And if it wasn’t you, I wouldn’t want anybody close to me (yeah, yeah)
‘Cause I’m an animal, animal-al, like animal, like you
And I don’t wanna be somebody without your body close to me (whoo)
Close to me
Close to me

(Animal, animal-al, like animal, like you)

And I don’t wanna be somebody without your body close to me
And if it wasn’t you, I wouldn’t want anybody close to me (yeah, yeah)
Because I’m an animal, animal-al, like animal, like you
And I don’t wanna be somebody without your body close to me (whoo)
Close to me
(To me) close to me
