How to make text look like its moving closer to the camera?

Here's an example of what I'm trying to do :


I tried making a composite shot with nothing but text on it to see if I could do it. I set two points on my layer, each with a different scale value, to see if making it go from small--> big achieved this effect, but my issue was that it doesn't seem to enlarge evenly. It looked like my text was going up and to the left. 

I'm not even sure if that's the correct approach though.

     I would centralise my text using the paragraph / centre alignment button and then change the anchor point under the text layer transform so it is in the middle of the text. Then add the two scale keyframes at the appropriate time on the timeline.
