Close2U – 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 gold
And 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 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 gold
And 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 to you.
Just like me (Just like me)
They long to be
Close to you.

Wahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.
Wahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.
Hahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.
Lahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.

Liner notes
from The Singles 1969-1973 written by Digby Diehl

In the months between the release of Ticket and the release of Close To You, the Carpenters were asked by Burt Bacharach to perform with him at a benefit performance for the Reiss-Davis Clinic. For the occasion, Burt asked Richard to arrange a medley of Bacharach songs. It was while Richard was selecting material for the medley that Herb Alpert suggested they include Close to You (at that time a little-known song). Upon hearing it Karen and Richard decided that although not right for the medley, the song would make a strong single. As fate would have it, they were playing the Westbury Music Fair in Long Island with Burt Bacharach on Memorial Day in 1970, two days after the single was released. In six weeks Close To You was No. 1 in the nation and in two months it became the Carpenters’ first gold single. This single sold 1.8 million copies domestically making it their biggest seller.
