They Long To Be Close To You

By B. Bacharach & H. David

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 moon dust in your hair
Of gold and starlight in your eyes of blue

That is why all the kids in town
Follow you 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 moon dust in your hair
Of gold and starlight in your eyes of blue

And that is why all the kids in town
Follow you all around
And just like me, they long to be
Close to you

And just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Aaaaahhhh, close you…
