"(They Long To Be) Close To You"

(As recorded by the Carpenters)
HAL DAVID
BURT BACHARACH

Why do birds suddenly appear
Everytime you are near
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Everytime 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 girls in town
Follow you all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Ah, ah, ah

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

Waa, close to you
Waa, close to you
Waa, close to you
Waa, close to you.
