"Just to Be Close to You" as written by and Lionel Richie....
Just to be close to you, girl
Just for a moment, well
Just for an hour
Just to be close to you, girl

Then, 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

Oh girl, then you, then you came into my life
You made my jagged edges smooth, you made my, you made my direction so clear
And you, oh woman you became my purpose
My reason for living, girl, you see

You're my heart, you're my soul, you're my strong inspiration, baby
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
Oh, we'll live and love forever, yea
Take my hand
Ooh, we'll be alone you and me
Take my hand
Girl, we'll live our lives together, yeah together
Ooh, together, yeah, 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
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, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, just to be close to you, girl
Just for the moment, oh, just for the moment
