Close To You
Close To You:The Carpenters:
#1 in 1970.

       Ab               G7sus 
Why do birds suddenly appear,
G7    Gm7          Cm7
every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
close to you.

       Ab                       G7sus
Why do stars fall down from the sky,
G7    Gm7           Cm7
every time you walk by?
Ab                             Eb6      EbM7 EbM6 EbM7
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.
C7       Ab
So, they sprinkled moon dust 
in your hair of gold and starlight
Ab6             Bb
in your eyes of blue.

Bb      Ab                  G7
That is why all the boys in town,
       Gm7      Cm7
follow you all around.
Ab                             Eb6      EbM7 Eb6 EbM7
Just like me, they long to be, close to you.

About the artist behind Close To You:

Carpenters is the third studio album by The Carpenters. Released on May 14, 1971, the album was successful, reaching #2 on the Billboard 200 chart and #12 in the United Kingdom. With the hit songs "For All We Know", "Rainy Days and Mondays" and "Superstar", Carpenters solidified Karen Carpenter as one of her generation's most endearing pop vocalists. Amongst many fans, the album has simply been referred to as The Tan Album, because the album itself is like a tan envelope[1][2], and is presumably a play on The Beatles' so-called White Album. In Cash Box's Top 100 Albums of 1971, Carpenters peaked at #8.[3]

This is not the first album featuring tracks with Richard Carpenter singing lead vocal, with Karen in the background, as opposed to the other tracks. "Druscilla Penny" and "Saturday" are both led by Richard Carpenter, though neither were released as singles nor charted as hits.
