Hal David (May 25, 1921 – September 1, 2012): (They Long To Be) Close To You

04/09/2012

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 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 moon dust in your hair of gold
And 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 [Just like me]
They long to be
Close to you

Wah-ah-ah, close to you
Wah-ah-ah, close to you
Ah-ah-ah, close to you
Wah-ah-ah, close to you.

Written by Burt Bacharach / Hal David
