About You Came

"You Came" is the second single from the album Close by Kim Wilde. The song was written by Wilde and Ricky Wilde, after the birth of his first child, Marty. The single became one of the biggest hits of Wilde's career, peaking at number three on the UK Singles Chart and reaching the top 10 in several other European countries, including Denmark, where it reached number one for five weeks. In the United States, it was her fourth (and to date final) single to reach the top 50, peaking at number 41 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also reached number 10 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. The song was released during the summer of 1988, while Wilde was supporting Michael Jackson on the European leg of his Bad tour (the video for "You Came" showed material from the concerts as well as backstage footage). With the Close album becoming a best-seller, this was arguably the point where Wilde was at the pinnacle of her career as "You Came" reached the top ten in charts all over the world. It has sold 393,000 copies in France.

Someone I know is staring at me
And when I look into her eyes
I see a girl that I used to be
I hardly recognize
'cause in the space of a year
I've watched the old me disappear
All of the things I once held precious
Just don't mean anything anymore
'cause suddenly

You came, and changed the way I feel
No one could love you more
Because you came and turned my life around
No one could take your place

I've never felt good with permanent things
Now I don't want anything to change
You can't imagine the joy you bring
My life won't be the same
And I'll be there when you call
I'll pick you up if you should fall
'cause I have never felt such inspiration
Nobody else ever gave me more because

You came, and changed the way I feel
No one could love you more
Because you came and turned my life around
No one could take your place

I watch you sleep in the still of the night
You look so pretty when you dream
So many people just go through life
Holding back, they don't say what they mean
But it's easy for me
Since you came
No one could love you more
Because you came and turned my life around
No one could take your place
You came, and changed the way I feel
No one could love you more
Because you came and turned my life around
No one could take your place
