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 moondust in your hair
And golden 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 you you

On 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
And golden 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 you
Oh, just like me
They long to be close to you
Baby, baby, baby
They long to be so close to you
