( They Long To Be ) CLOSE TO YOU
Words & Music : Hal David & Burt Bacharach ( 1964 )

Why do birds suddenly appear
Evíry time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be close to you.

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Evíry 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 
Follow you all around. 
Just like me, they long to be 
Close to you.

Follow you all around. 
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.
