Close To You - by The Carpenters

F F E7 E7
Why do birds suddenly appear
Em Em Am Am
Every time you are near?
F F
Just like me, they long to be
Cmaj7 Cmaj7
Close to you

F F E7 E7
Why do stars fall down from the sky
Em Em Am Am
Every time you walk by?
F F
Just like me, they long to be
Cmaj7 Cmaj7 C7 C7
Close to you

F F F F
On the day that you were born the angels got together
Em Em A7 A7
And decided to create a dream come true
F F Am Am
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair
Dm Dm F F G7 G7
And golden starlight in your eyes of blue

F F E7 E7
That is why all the Boys in town
(Boys in town)
Em Em
Follow you (Follow you)
Am Am
All around (All around)
F F
Just like me, they long to be
Cmaj7 Cmaj7
Close to you


F F F F
On the day that you were born the angels got together
Em Em A7 A7
And decided to create a dream come true
F F Am Am
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair
Dm Dm F F G7 G7
And golden starlight in your eyes of blue

F F E7 E7
That is why all the Boys in town
(Boys in town)

Follow you (Follow you)
Am Am
All around (All around)

Just like me, they long to be
