Alexander George "Alex" Clare (born 14 September 1985) is a British singer and songwriter from south-west London now living in north-west London, UK. The Too Close Songfacts says that he took up the trumpet and drums as a youngster, but as he grew older he graduated to guitar-based songwriting, playing open-mike nights with original material. Clare dated Amy Winehouse for a year during these early days, after meeting her during a performance at The Hawley Arms in Camden, North London. A demo earned him a deal with the Island label in the U.K.

    You know I'm not one to break promises
    I don't want to hurt you but I need to breathe
    At the end of it all, you're still my best friend
    But there's something inside that I need to release
    Which way is right, which way is wrong?

    Waking up in someone else's bed
    Was what I was waiting for
    Oh my days, what have I done
    She saw me sneaking out the door
    What have I been waiting for

    My heart just sank the moment I saw you
    You're the image of a girl that I used to know
    Don't be alarmed if it seems hard for me to explain
    But every detail of your face makes me recall her name
    Treading water, I keep treading water

    Take what you need, and leave the rest,
    No I don't mind, no I don't mind,
    I'll get this off my chest,
    There's nowhere else I'd rather be.

    Relax my beloved, don't worry for me
    Don't shed a tear for me, always be near for me
    Be comforted my love, don't bow you head for me
    Promise you'll smile for me, don't ever cry for me
    You know these walls
