I'm studying English and I came across this new expression. I researched, but in Portuguese it has several different meanings, some of them even contradictory. So I'd like to know from the American perspective, what the idea of that phrase is. Here is the lyrics of the song (joe Inoue - Closer):
You know the closer you get to something
The tougher it is to see it
And i'll never take it for granted
And the translations I've already found:
And I'll never get used to it.
And I'll never be satisfied.
And I'll never think this will ever be like this forever.
