"Don't Get Any Closer" is the eleventh track from Bebe Rexha’s debut studio album Expectations.

Background Edit

In “Don’t Get Any Closer,” Bebe's voice soars and haunts over dark, guitar-driven sparse production, explaining to her lover that while she might seem to be one person from the outside, there’s a very different version of herself underneath.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
What if I let you in and you don't like what you see?
'Cause it's not what it seems, let me tell you why
You have no idea, yeah, you only seen a piece
But now it's underneath, no, I cannot lie

[Pre-Chorus]
Sometimes I get so frustrated
I've tried a million times to say it
It's so much easier to fake it
So trust me

[Chorus]
Don't get any closer
These walls are super high
So don't even try
To get any closer
I'm scared you're gonna find
All the things I've been hiding from you
All the things I've been hiding from you, oh

[Verse 2]
What if you hear the thoughts that haunt me in my sleep?
The secrets I don't speak running through my mind
You have no idea, yeah, you only seen a piece
But now it's underneath, no, I cannot lie

[Pre-Chorus]
Sometimes I get so frustrated
I've tried a million times to say it
It's so much easier to fake it
So trust me

[Chorus]
Don't get any closer
These walls are super high so don't even try
To get any closer
I'm scared you're gonna find
All the things I've been hiding from you, oh
All the things I've been hiding from you, oh

[Outro]
All the things I've been hiding from you, oh
