Skeeter Davis – Closest Thing To Love (I've Ever Seen) lyrics

You never give me all the love a woman craves
'Cause there's a part of youth you seem to want to save
I must admit you're not the man of my dreams
But you're the closest thing to love I've ever seen.

You're not the kind of man I always hoped to find
But when I'm in your arms I never really mind
Cause there's a feeling that has taken hold of me
'And it's the closest thing to love I've ever seen.

Why should I go looking for somebody new
The closest thing to love I've seen is you.

I'd waited for your touch to end this burning fire
But your love always leaves a lot to be desired
Yes, there can never be enough of you for me
'Cause you're the closest thing to love I've ever seen...
