Just to be close to you girl
Just for a moment, well just for an hour
Just to be close to you girl
Oh well, ah baby

There was a lonely man
A man with no direction, with no purpose
With no one to love and no one to love me for, for me
Aw girl then you, then you came into my life
You made my jagged edges smooth
You made my, you made my direction so clear and you aw woman
You became my purpose my reason for livin' girl

You see you're my heart, you're soul
You're my stone inspiration
Baby oh that's why I'm standin' here singin'
And opening my arms to you
I wanna say child why don't you?

Take my hand and I'll live in love forever yeah
Take my hand, we'll be alone you and me yeah
Take my hand,
Girl, we'll live our lives together yeah together
Together yeah together

Just to be close to you girl
Just for the moment baby, just for an hour
Just to be close to you girl
I need you baby

To make love to be loved by you baby
To have your warm body close to mine
To whisper words that make you feel like a woman
Girl I know our love will stand the test of time
Just to be close to you girl

For the moment baby, for the moment baby
For the moment baby
For the sugar, sugar, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ooh yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah

Just to be close to you girl
Just for the moment baby, just for an hour
