The closer I get to you
The more you make me see
By giving me all you've got (tell me more)
Your love has captured me

Over and over again
I try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
When all the while inside
I knew it was real
The way you make me feel

Lying here next to you
Time just seems to fly
Needing you more and more
Let's give love a try (let's give love a try)

Sweeter than sweeter love grows
And heaven's there for those
Who fool the tricks of time
With hearts in love will find
True love in a special way

The closer I get to you, baby
The more you make me see (the more you make me see)
By giving me what you've got
Your love captured me

Over and over again
I try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
When all the while inside
I knew this was real (got to be real)
The way you make me feel (you know, you know, you know)
My baby, my baby, my baby, my love, my love, my love, my love

(Come closer love) Come a little closer so that we can see into the eyes of love
I wanna see into those eyes of love
(Come closer love) Just a little a closer let me speak to you
I want to softly tell you something
Here I am, here's my love; I just want you to come closer
Come a little closer, let me whisper in your ear
'Cause I want to tell you something
I wanna whisper in your ear so soft, so come closer love
Move on in real close so we can celebrate the way we feel about each other's lovin'
Wanna tell you words, words of love, words that make you wanna
