"Close to You (2000 version)" as written by Chris Spruill, Alan Callahan, David Warren Dicke, Scott Macconnell and Jason Marks....
Watching daybreak, chase shadows from you, as you cling to sleep
There`s a moment in my world, when I don`t want to breathe
Just want to be silently close to you

I see myself as a hand me down, all broken in
I see myself tattered and torn, I can be brand new
When I`m close to you

Don`t ever let anyone ever tell me what it is they think I need
Because they`ve never seen the way you look at me
As if there`s something in me that nobody else can see
I keep one hand in the filth of my life, one hand I keep for you
You bring me up, you bring me out, you bring me in
I want to be, I want to be close to you

When I`m close to you
You never see things the way I did
Instead I find I ain`t satisfied with the man, the man I think I am

Anything you want, anything you need
I want to be the one you come to, I want to be the one you run to
I want to be the only one to, I want to be close to you

You`ve been too far away
[Lyrics to "Close to You" (new version 1999/2000)]
Watching daybreak, chase shadows from you, as you cling to sleep
There`s a moment in my world, when I don`t want to breathe
Just want to be quietly close to you

I keep one hand in the filth of my life, one hand I keep for you
When restless ones tear at my sleeve
You`re the comfort I believe in
I want to be, I want to be close to you

I see myself as a hand me down, all broken in
And I see myself, I`m tattered and torn, I can be brand new
When I`m close to you
I never see things the way I did
Instead I find I ain`t satisfied with this man, the man I think I am

You know it`s true
Anything you want (yeah), anything you need
I want to be the one you come to, I want to be the one you run to
I want to be the only one too, I want to be close to you

    General CommentThis is a great song...I'm surprised to see no one else has written any comments about any of the songs. They are an underrated band and this song, along with the '98 version are both excellent.
