"Propinquity (I've Just Begun To Care)" as written by and Michael Nesmith....
I've known for a long time
The kind of girl you are.
Of a smile that covers teardrops,
The way your head yields to you heart.
Of things you've kept inside
That most girls couldn't bear.
I've known you for a long time,
But I've just begun to care.

I've known of all the heartaches,
I've known of all the pain.
I've seen you when the sun shines,
And I've seen you when it rains.
I've seen you make a look of love
From just an icy stare.
I've known you for a long time,
But I've just begun to care.

I know I've been blind
To not have loved you all this time,
But the image of you wasn't clear.
I guess I've been standing too near.

Oh, it's taken me a while,
But I have finally found
What you are to me;
And that's what really counts.
And what you are to me
Is something we can share.
I've known you for a long time,
But I've just begun to care.

Oh, it's taken me a while,
But I have finally found
What you are to me;
And that's what really counts.
And what you are to me
Is something we can share.
I've known you for a long time,
But I've just begun to care.

    General Comment"The propinquity effect is the tendency for people to form friendships or romantic relationships with those whom they encounter often. In other words, relationships tend to be formed between those who have a high propinquity" from Wilkipedia. This is why so many relationships start at work. Lovely song, not typical of what the Monkees are usually known for, with a very heavy Mike Nesmith influence. Just one of many beautiful album tracks by this band that really deserve a good listen.
