Featuring Brenda Lee Eager

You know, baby
I used to get awful mad every time
I saw someone out with you
I really did

But I've been loving you so long now
That I really can kinda understand
And so when I see them digging you
I just smile and say

I know why birds suddenly appear
Every time you come 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, ooh, they
Long to be close to you

On the day that you were born
The angels got together
They decided to make
A dream come true

So they sprinkled moon dust
In your hair, to my baby
I love you

That's why all the guys in town
Follow you around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you. yes, they do
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Sing it from the song
Just like me (just like me)
They long to be (they long to be)
Close to you

Say it one more time, baby
Just like me (just like me)
Just like me, just like me
They long to be (they long to be)
Close to you

Sing it like I wanna moan one time
Ooh, ooh, close to you
Ooh, ooh, close to you
Say it one more time, baby
Ooh, ooh, close to you

Every day of my life
Ooh, ooh, close to you
