The closer I get to you
The more you'll make me see
Like giving me all you've got
Your love has captured me

Over and over again
I'll try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
And all the while inside
I knew it was real
The way you make me feel

Lying here next to you
Time just seems to fly
Needing you more and more
Let's give love a try

Sweeter than sweeter love grows
And heaven's there for those
Who fool the tricks of time
With the hearts in love you find
True love
In a special way

The closer I get to you
The more you'll make me see
By giving me all you've got
Your love has captured me

Over and over again
I'll try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
And all the while inside
I knew it was real
The way you make me feel

The closer I get to you
The more you'll make me see
By giving you all I've got
Your love has captured me
