The Closer I Get To You (Duet With Beyonce Knowles)

The closer I get to you
The more you make me see
By giving me all you’ve got
Ooh yeah, 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’m gonna try love

Sweeter than sweeter love grows
And heaven’s there for those
Who fool the tricks of time
With hearts of love will find true love
In a special way, 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 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
Yeah, yeah

Come closer love
Come a little closer so we then 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 wanna softly tell you something
Here I am, here’s my love
I just want you to come closer, 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

Move a little closer we can celebrate
The way we feel about each other’s lovin’
Wanna tell you words, words of love
Words of love
