Gerald Levert – Close To You lyrics

Yea, yea, yea

Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?
Just like me they long to be close to you
Why do stars fall down from the sky every time you walk by?
Just like me they long to be close to you
Ooh, yeah

On the day that you were born, the angles got together
And decided to create a dream come true, yes they did
So they sprinkled moon dust in you hair and sunlight in your eyes
Like they do
Like they do do

That is why
That is why
All the guys in town
All of the guys
Follow you all around

Just, just, just, just, just like me they long, they long to be
Close to you
Close to you
Baby, ooh baby
Ooh yeah

If only for a minute, I'll settle for an hour
And if you could stay just for one day
That would make me so happy, happy baby

See it won't hurt to give a love a try
No, no
Girl don't you pass me by
'Cause I'm that kind of guy
Who's gonna love you
Gonna love
And treat you like a queen

That is why all the girls in town
They don't mean nothing baby
Follow you all around
I only have asked for you
Just like me
Just like me
They long to be close to you
Close to you

I can feel it when ever we touch
And whenever we talk and whenever we walk
All the time
Close to you

I want to be
I want to be
I want to be
Come a little closer babe
Come a little closer babe
Lay your head up on my shoulder, babe
On my shoulder, baby

Boy you know I can't deny it
Girl you know I can't deny it
You done gone and set my soul on fire, baby
How I love to be closer to you baby

Oh, I can't believe
I can't believe that we are
Hugging and kissing and squeezing each other
And I am the one to get close to you
