Just To Be Close To You
Just to be close to you, girl
Just for a moment, well, just for an hour
Just to be close to you, girl
Ah well, aw baby, yeah

I, you know I've been through so many changes in my life, girl
Aw, I've been up real high where I thought I didn't need anybody
Aw and, and then again I've been down real low where
There was no one in my life who needed me
Aw and I found that material things I thought had so much value
Aw girl, didn't really have any value at all

That I was a lonely man
A man with no direction, with no purpose
With no one to love and no one to love me for, for me
Aw girl, then you, then you came into my life
You made my jagged edges smooth
You made my, woo, you my direction so clear, and you
Aw woman, you became my purpose
My reason for livin', girl, you see
You're my heart, you're my soul
You're my stone inspiration, baby
Aw, that's why I'm standing here
Singing and opening my arms to you
I want to say, child, why don't you

(Take my hand)
Aw, we'll live in love forever, yeah
(Take my hand)
Ooh, we'll be alone, you and me, yeah
(Take my hand)
Girl, we'll live our lives together, yeah, together
(Mm, together yeah)
Aw-aw, together (together)

Just to be close to you, girl
Just for the moment, baby, (well) just for an hour
Just to be close to you, girl
Hey-hey, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh

I've been out there searchin' so very long, baby
Searching to find somebody just like you
And for some folks it takes a lifetime, sugar
To find in this world a dream come true, why don't you

(Take my hand)
Oh, we'll live in love forever, yeah
(Take my hand)
Girl, we'll be alone, you and me
(Take my hand)
We'll spend our lives together
Together (together), aw-aw, together (together), aw

Just to be close to you, girl
Just for the moment (aw, just for the moment)
Ah, just for the hour
Just to be close to you, girl
I need you, baby

To make love, to be loved by you, baby
To have your warm body close to mine
To whisper words that make you feel like a woman
Girl, I know our love will stand the test of time

Just to be close to you, girl
For the moment, baby
(For the moment, baby, for the moment, baby)
For the sugar, sugar, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey girl, I wanna say
(Get closer and closer, girl, please hold me closer)
My arms are still burnin’
Girl, you got me yearnin' for your love
Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
