An angels kiss is the kiss you gave to me
An angels touch, has touched my heart
Your love is something, that's truly heavenly
Heaven is here in your arms

I couldn't sleep at night and then you embraced my life
With your sweet, sexy ways, oh, now I can't even think
What my life would be, to be without you even one day

You're the closest thing to heaven in my world
Never take this heaven from my arms
Don't take your love from me or you'll take everything
You're the closest thing to heaven that I've ever seen

You are, you are the closest thing to heaven, you are, you are

My happiness is just being next to you
Your tenderness has touched my soul
Never knew someone had so much love for me
I'm never letting you

I thought no one could care, you answered all my prayers
With your sweet, sexy ways, oh, you made my life complete
When you made love to me that's why, I love you more everyday

You're the closest thing to heaven in my world
Never take this heaven from my arms
Don't take your love from me or you'll take everything
You're the closest thing to heaven that I've ever seen

You are, you are the closest thing to heaven, you are, you are
You are, you are the closest thing to heaven, you are, you are

The one love, I need in my life
The one touch, I need in night
You're the answer to all of my prayers
Promise me you'll always be there

You're the closest thing to heaven in my world
Never take this heaven from my arms
Don't take your love from me or you'll take everything
You're the closest thing to heaven that I've ever seen

You are, you are the closest thing to heaven, you are, you are
You are, you are the closest thing to heaven, you are, you are
