Close to my heart

It’s been a long time but I remember well
First time I saw you then I was
Holding you close to my heart

It didn’t take much for me to realize
The moment you caught my eyes I was
Holding you close to my heart

You didn’t seem to notice
I didn’t seem to care
But the moment you touched my hand
All the magic was there
Ooh baby

You give me reasons to feel so alive
When you spoke those words that night I was
Holding you close to my heart

(bridge)
Holding you close to my heart
That’s what I’m doing now
And even if you’d take your love away
I still would be here holding you
Holding you close to my heart

And when you came to me that precious night
All the stars were sparkling bright and I was
Holding you close to my heart
Holding you close to my heart
