"(They Long to Be) Close to You" as written by and Buelent/cottura Aris....
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

Aah
Close to you

    General Commentahhh.
    this is such an AMAZING cover. much better than the originals.
    it sounds like the person is in love with some one who doesn't notice her at all.
