Close To You Lyrics

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

On the day that you were born the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moondust in your hair
Of golden starlight in your eyes of blue

That is why all the girls in town (Girls in town)
Follow you (Follow you)
All around (All around)
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

On the day that you were born the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moondust in your hair
Of golden starlight in your eyes of blue

That is why all the girls in town (Girls in town)
Follow you (Follow you)
All around (All around)
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Why? Close to you
Why? Close to you
Haa, close to you
Why? Close to you

||: Why? Close to you :||
