"(They Long to Be) Close to You" as written by Glen Ballard and Shelby Lynne....
Ah
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 boys 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

Ah, close to you.
Ah, close to you.
