​(They Long To Be) Close To You

This song is by The Cranberries and appears on the bonus tracks of the album No Need to Argue (1994).

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you...

Why do stars fall off 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
They decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair
And put a starlight in your eyes so blue

That is why all 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...

Ah...
Close to you...
