Close To You - Bonafide 1990

written by : G.Benson/W.Sela/M.Elliott


She was a Jazabel this Brixton queen
Living her life like a backstreet dream
Telling me lies when the truth was clear
I think she knew what I wanted to hear
Spinning me round like a wheel on fire
Walking a tightrope on loveís high wire
Fatal attraction is where Iím at
Thereís no escape for me

(Chorus)
I just wanna be close to you
Do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

I feel love when Iím lying in the midnight hour
Holding you just like a dream
Love is never what it seems

When we touch, and youíre holding me the way you do
Girl you make my dreams come true

(Chorus)

She was a Gemini on the cusp of Mars
She holds me back or she goes too far
Winding me up just to let me down
So emotionally gagged and bound
There was more to this than meets the eye
A devil woman locked inside
With the full moon rising I was scared
I think I was possessed

(Chorus)

I feel love every time your bodyís next to mine
Something deep inside of me
Wants to love you endlessly

When we tough girl you donít know how it makes me feel
I just canít believe itís real I canít believe itís real

(Chorus)

She had an attitude I canít explain
You never know if youíre in the frame
Tying me up with elastic words
Iím on a countdown till I get hurt
Her blood was hot and she burned so bright
A neon sign there in the night
Itís hard to say if I went too far
My heart still bears the scars

I just wanna be close to you
I just wanna be close to you
I just wanna be close to you

She was a Jazabel this Brixton queen
Living her life like a backstreet dream
Telling me lies when the truth was clear
I think she knew what I wanted to hear (I just wanna be close to you)
Spinning me round like a wheel on fire
Walking a tightrope on loveís high wire
Fatal attraction is where Iím at
Thereís no escape for me

I wanna be close to you do all the thing you wanna me to
I just wanna be close to you
I just wanna be close to you baby
Show you the way I feel
I just wanna be close to you do all the thing you wanna me to
I just wanna be close to you
