A song about getting closer and closer to someone without ever really reaching them. Calculus says it best.


I'm always getting closer to you
Arbitrarily close to you
But no matter how close I go, I'll never get to touch you
You horizontal asymptote

I saw you on a plane I was headed for an infinite destination
I was flying higher and higher, on top of the world
But you cut me short

Cuz my limit is you
My limit is you you you X2

I'm so continuous in my pursuit of you
I never approach a situation from the right and left without following through
But you hold me down, you push me back
I'm .999 and you're the one I lack
Fear of intimacy
That's one of your properties


I stopped and reflected tried to change my direction
I became my inverse
But as I approached you, as I got to know you
You introduced me to your vertical asymptote

.99, .9999, .999999 x4
You're my one
