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

From the day that you were born
The angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moondust in your hair
Of gold, and starlight in your eyes of blue

Ah, that is why 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
Just like me
They long to be close to you

From the day that you were born
The angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moondust in your hair
Of gold, and starlight in your eyes of blue

Ah, that is why the girls in town
Follow you all around
Just like me
They long to be close to you

Like me, like me, like me
I want to be close to you

Woo, ah, close to you
Woo, me too
I want to be close to you

Ooh, I want to be, me too
I want to be close to you

From the day that you were born
The angels got together
A dream come true
That's you, that's you
And I want to be close to you
