Commodores – Just To Be Close To You lyrics

Just to be close to you
The Commodores

Just to be close to you girl
Just for a moment, well just for an hour
Just to be close to you girl
Oh well ah baby aw

You know I've been thru so many changes in my life girl
Aw I've been up real high where I thought I didn't need anybody
Aw and then again I've been down real low where
There was no one in my life who needed me
Aw and I found that material things I thought had so much value
Aw girl, didn't really have any value at all

Then I was a lonely man
A man with no direction, with no purpose
With no one to love, and no one to love me for, for me
Aw girl then you, then you came into my life
You made my jagged edges smooth
You made my -what? You made my direction so clear
And you, aw woman, you became my purpose
My reason for livin' girl
You see, you're my heart, you're my soul
You're my stone inspiration, Baby
Oh, that's why I'm standin' here, singin'
And opening my arms to you
I wanna say child, why don't you

Take my hand, aw we'll live in love forever, yeah
Take my hand
ooh we'll be alone, you and me, yeah
Take my hand
Girl, we'll live our lives together, yeah together
Together, mmm, together yeah
together

Just to be close to you, Girl
Just for the moment baby, just for an hour
Just to be close to you, Girl, hey, hey
ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah

I've been out there searchin' so very long, baby
Searchin' to find somebody just like you
And for some folks it takes a lifetime, sugar
To find in this world a dream come true
Why don't you take my hand
Oh, we'll live in love forever, yeah
Take my hand, Girl, we'll be alone you and me
Take my hand, we'll spend our lives together,
Together, together, together

Just to be close to you, girl
Just for the moment, just for the hour
Just to be close to you, girl
I need you baby

To make love to be loved by you baby
To have your warm body close to mine
To whisper words that make you feel like a woman
Girl, I know our love will stand the test of time

Just to be close to you, girl
For the moment baby, for the moment baby
For the moment baby
For the sugar, sugar, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Ooh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

And girl I wanna say, closer and closer
Girl, please hold me closer
My arms are still burnin' girl
Ya got me yearnin' for your love
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Shine on, shine on
