(They Long To Be)



Why do birds

Suddenly appear?

Everytime you are near

Just like me

They long to be

Close to you



Why do stars

Fall down from the sky?

Everytime you walk by

Just like me

They long to be

Close to you



(*) On the day that you were born

The angels got together and decided

To create a dream come true

So they sprinkled moondust in your hair

Of gold and starlight in your eyes of blue



(**) That is why all the girls in town

Follow you all around

Just like me

They long to be

Close to you



Repeat (*)

Repeat (**)



Just like me

They long to be

Close to you



Woo... Close to you...
