Lyrics

Sam:
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
And the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true

So they sprinkled moon dust
In your hair of gold
And starlight 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

On the day that you were born
And the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true

So they sprinkled moon dust
In your hair of gold
And starlight 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

Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

Aah, aah, aah, ooh yeah
Close to you
Aah, aah, aah
Aah aah aah
Oh, close to you
