“How can I think I’m standing strong
yet feel the air beneath my feet?
How can happiness feel so wrong?
How can misery feel so sweet?
How can you let me watch you sleep
then break my dreams the way you do?
How can I have got in so deep?
Why did I fall in love with you?

This is the closest thing to crazy I have ever been
feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen
this is the nearest thing to crazy I have ever known
I was never crazy on my own
and now I know that there’s a link between the two
being close to craziness and being close to you.

How can you make me fall apart
Then break my fall with loving lies?
It’s so easy to break a heart
it’s so easy to close your eyes
how can you treat me like a child
yet like a child I yearn for you?
How can anyone feel so wild?
How can anyone feel so blue?

This is the closest thing to crazy I have ever been
feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen
this is the nearest thing to crazy I have ever known
I was never crazy on my own
and now I know that there’s a link between the two
being close to craziness and being close to you”.

Citazioni.

The Closest Thing to Crazy is the debut single of Georgia-born singer Katie Melua. It is featured on her hugely successful album, Call Off the Search. The song appeared first in 1995 on Mike Batt‘s album Arabesque. The single was originally due out in January 2004, but was released a month early in an attempt by Terry Wogan to make it that year’s Christmas number one in the UK. The single reached only number ten in the UK charts. However, owing to the success of the album reaching number one, the song climbed back into the top 20 during the January and February period, and resulted in obtaining Katie’s first nomination for the annual Record of the Year prize on ITV1. She was to be nominated again at the ceremony the following year for “Nine Million Bicycles“, but lost out to Busted and Westlife respectively. She did however finish in the top 5 of voting for both years. The song is played in the key of E Major at a tempo of 64bpm. The vocal range is G#3-C#5. It has an irregular meter with a mix of 4/4, 3/4 and 2/4. The lyrics of the song take the form of a series of rhetorical questions, describing the contradictory emotions of being in love. It appears that the object of the singer’s love treats the singer unkindly, and may not return the emotion”.
