Sittin' here in this chair waitin' on you
Oh, baby, to see things my way
But not a word do you say
You won't even look my way

Girl I'm spendin' my dimes, wastin' my time
Talkin' till I'm black and blue
Uh, can't you see
I want to get next to you

Dreams of you and I go sailing by
Whenever your eyes meet mine (You're so fine)
And, girl, you make me feel so insecure
You're so beautiful and pure

Why must you be unkind and tell me I'm not your kind, blowin my mind
Girl, my, my money is low and I know
That I can't take you to the fancy places you might want to go
Still I want to get next to you

I, I want to get next to you
Baby, yeah
Ah, ah, ah
Ah, yeah

Girl, you can bend me, shake me, make me
Whatever it takes to please you, I'm willing to do
'Cause you're my dream come true
And I want to get next to you, baby, yea

I want to get next to you (I want to make you mine for all the time)
I want to get next to you (I promise I'll never make you blue)
I want to get next to you (So when love begins between me and you)
I want to get next to you (Girl, I'm in love)
I want to get next to you

    General Commenti agree such a soulful song but i think what he is sayin in this song is that yah she isnt nice to him or good for him but he likes her so much he cant give up on her and he thinks about what it would be like jus to be close to her or near her in a way that says were more than freinds
