  • Darling if you want me to be closer to you
    Get closer to me
    Darling if you want me to be closer to you
    Get closer to me
    Darling if you want me to love, love only you
    Then love only me
    Darling if you want me to see, see only you
    Then see only me
    There's a line that I can't cross over
    It's no good for me and it's no good for you
    And that feeling deep down inside me
    I can't explain it and you're wondering why
    You say we been like strangers
    But I'm not the others you can hang by your fingers
    Darling if you want me to be closer to you
    Get closer to me
    Darling if you want me to be closer to you
    Get closer to me
    Darling if you want me to love, love only you
    Then love only me
    Darling if you want me to see, see only you
    Then see only me
    There was a time I would come running
    Drop everything for the touch of your hand in mine
    You were blind
    And now you regret it
    'Cause I can't forget it
    It's locked in my mind
    And I can't go on living
    Wondering if you'll be here tomorrow
    People change and you're changing
    And I've given you my all
    That no one can borrow
    Darling if you want me to be closer to you
    Get closer to me
    Darling if you want me to be closer to you
    Get closer to me
    Darling if you want me to be closer to you
    Get closer to me... Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
