Proximity in Public

Don’t stand so close to me by The Police

(Autistic community version)


That feeling, is building

The walls are closing in

need out so, so badly

But people surrounding me

Inside, heads screaming

A minute feels like an age

Don’t touch me or get closer

This place feels like a cage

Don’t stand, don’t stand so

Don’t stand so close to me

Don’t stand, don’t stand so

Don’t stand so close to me

Heart pounding not beating

It feels like no escape

This life it’s not so easy

Nor is it to explain

Instinctual, frustrating

So bad it overwhelms

Queueing now, I’m waiting

Feeling people all around

Don’t stand, don’t stand so

Don’t stand so close to me

Don’t stand, don’t stand so

Don’t stand so close to me

Hand shaking while paying

Can’t really concentrate

Now panicked on the way out

Breathing getting tough to do

Get outside, get all alone

Hands tremble, dropping my bags

I need to get back home

So please let me by

Don’t stand, don’t stand so

Don’t stand so close to me

Don’t stand, don’t stand so

Don’t stand so close to me

Don’t stand, don’t stand so

Don’t stand so close to me

Don’t stand, don’t stand so

Don’t stand so close to me

Don’t stand, don’t stand so

Don’t stand so close to me

Don’t stand, don’t stand so

Don’t stand so close to me

Don’t stand, don’t stand so

Don’t stand so close to me

Don’t stand, don’t stand so

Don’t stand so close to me


All the best
