[Intro] Cadd2  - C - Cadd2  - C - Cadd2  - C - Cadd2 

Cadd2                  Bsus B       Bm7          Em7 Em
Why do birds suddenly appear   every time you are near?
C         Cadd2  C            Cadd2  Gmaj9
Just like me,     they long to be      close to you.

Why do stars fall down from the sky every time you walk by?
                                           G9
Just like me, they long to be close to you.

C      C6       Cmaj7    C6       C      C6     Cmaj7  C6
On the day that you were born the angels got to-gether   and
   Bm7                          Bm7/E  E7
de-cided to create a dream come true.
        Cadd2              C
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of
Cmaj7              C6              D
gold and starlight in your eyes of blue.
        Cadd2                   Bsus B        Bm7       Em7 Em 
That is why     all the girls in town   follow you all a-round.
C         Cadd2  C            Cadd2  Gmaj9
Just like me,     they long to be      close to you.

[Interlude]
Db(add2) - Csus - C - Cm7 - Fm7 - Db - Db(add2) - D6 - Db(add2) - Abmaj9

Db     Db6      Dbmaj7     Db6      Db     Db6    Dbmaj7 Db6
On the day that you   were born the angels got to-gether   and
   Cm7                          Cm7/F F7
de-cided to create a dream come true.
        Db(add2)            Db
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of
Dbmaj7             Db6             Bbm7/Eb Eb7 
gold and starlight in your eyes of blue.
        Db(add2)             Csus C        Cm7       Fm7 Fm
That is why all the girls in town   follow you all a-round.
Db        Db(add2) Db           Db(add2) Abmaj9
Just like me,      they long to be       close to you.
                              Ab(add2) Ab - Ab(add2) - 
Just like me, they long to be close to  you.
- Ab - Ab(add2) - Ab - Ab(add2)

[Refrain] x2

Wah,    close to you.
Wah, close to you.
Ha, close to you.
Wah, close to you.
