Just to be close to you, girl
Just to be close to you, girl

Aw I've been up real high where I thought I didn't need anybody
There was no one in my life who needed me
Aw girl didn't really have any value at all
That I was a lonely man
With no one to love and no one to love me for, for me
You made my jagged edges smooth
You became my purpose my reason for livin' girl
You see you're my heart, you're soul
Oh that's why I'm standin' here singin'
I want to say child why don't ya
Take my hand
Yeah take my hand ooh,
Take my hand
Together yeah, ah ah together, together
Just to be close to you girl
Just to be close to you girl, hey, hey ooh, ooh
I've been out there searchin' so very long baby
And for some folks it takes a lifetime, sugar

Take my hand
Take my hand
Take my hand
Together, together, ah ah together, together
Just to be close to you, girl
Ah, just for the hour
I need you baby
To make love, to be loved by you baby
To whisper words that make you feel like a woman

For the moment baby, for the moment baby
For the sugar, sugar, yeah, yeah,
Ooh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Closer and closer, girl please hold me closer
Girl you got me yearnin' for your love
