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

Over and over again, I try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
And 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, more and more
Let's give love a try, I wanna try love

Sweeter and 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, way

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

Over and over again, I try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
And all the while insideI knew this was real
Got to be real, the way you make me feel

My baby, my baby, my baby
My love, my love, my love, my love, yeah, yeah

Come a little closer so then
We can see into the eyes of love
I wanna see into those eyes of love
Just a little a closer let me speak to you
I wanna softly tell you something
Here I am and here's my love, I just want you to, yeah

Come a little closer let me whisper in your ear
'Cause I wanna tell you something
I wanna whisper in your ear, so soft so come closer love
Move on a little closer we can say for real
The way we feel about each other's lovin'
Wanna tell you tell you words, words of love
Words that make you wanna, yeah

Come a little closer so then
We can see into the eyes of love
Just a little a closer let me speak to you
I wanna softly tell you something
