(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.

Discontinued

Over the years, Spytunes have recorded many songs, some of these used to be in the eBooks and courses but for one reason or another have been discontinued.

Since they have video guitar lessons, I’ve kept these and added chords and lyrics.
