close to you

I’ve known (and fallen in love) with Carpenters’ Close to You version since junior high, and now, my 10 years old son knew
this song from Elliot from Open Season 2.

And then it becomes our favorite lullaby–preferably with Karen Carpenter’s voice but yeah, what choice do I have, right? 🙂
But still, this song works for us. I can relate to the lyrics, they describes a mother’s love to her son so beautifully.

 

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

On the day that you were born
And the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust
In your hair of golden starlight in your eyes of blue.
