(They Long To Be) Close To You – Carpenters!

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 girls in town (girls in town)
Follow you (follow you) all around (all around)
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Close To You – Chords & Guitar Lessons

Carpenters Close To You was written by Burt Bacharach so we are in for some clever chordal movement here.

Starting off with an Asus2 chord, Bacharach cleverly disguises where the tonal center is since a sus2 chord could be pretty much any of the chords from the key.
