Close to You - The Carpenters

The song-lyrics is very beautiful. I really love it. This was the first of a string of hits for The  Carpenters. They dominated Easy Listening radio in the early '70s. This was written by the songwriting team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. It was originally released as the B-side of "Blue Guitar" by Richard Chamberlain in 1963. I like the original version more, although there are so many versions sung by other famous singers.

Close to You 
 The Carpenters

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 moon dust in your hair
Of 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

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 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
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you
