Lyrics


The closer you are
The brighter the stars in the sky
And darling,
I realize
That you're the one in my life
Oh oh

My heart skips a beat
Every time
You and I meet
My life, my love, my dear
I can't defeat
This yearning deep in my heart
To have only you

When I first saw you,
I did adore you,
And all your loving ways
(Your loving ways)
But then you went away,
But now you're back to stay,
And my love for you grows stronger every
Day-ahhh Way-ahhh Way

The closer you are,
The brighter the flames in my heart,
And darling,
We'll never part
We'll always be in love
We'll always be in love
We'll always be in love
We'll always be in love
We'll always be in love
We'll always be in love
We'll always be in love
We'll always be . .
