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

Oh 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 star-light in your eyes of blue.
That is why all the boys in town follow you all around.
Just like me, they long to be close to you

Oh 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 star-light in your eyes of blue.
That is why all the boys in town follow you all around.
Just like me, they long to be close to you
