Gail Blanco - Close To You

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
and the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust
in your hair
And starlight in your eyes
Like they do

That is why all the guys in town
Follow you all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

If only for a minute
I'd settle for an hour
And if you could stay just for one day
That would make me so happy happy baby

See, it won't hurt to give our love a try
Girl don't you pass me by
'Cause I'm that kind of guy
who's going to love and treat you like a queen

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

Come a little closer baby
Lay your head up on my shoulder baby
Boy you know I can't deny it
You done already set my soul on fire

Just like me, they long to be
Close to you
