Just to be close to you, girl
Just for a moment, well,
Just for an hour
Just to be close to you girl

I was a lonely man
A man with no direction
With no purpose
With no one to love
And no one to love me, for me

Oh girl then you came into my life
You made my jagged edges smoothe
You made my direction so clear
And you oh women you became my purpose
My reason for living girl you see

You're my heart, you're my soul
You're my strong inspiration baby
That's why I'm standing here
Singing and opening my arms to you
I wanna say child, why don't you

Take my hand,
Oh we'll live and love forever
Take my hand,
Ooh we'll be alone you and me
Take my hand
Girl we'll live our lives together
Yeah together

Just to be close to you, girl
Just for the moment baby,
Well just for an hour
Just to be close to you, girl
I need you baby

To make love, to be loved by you baby
To have your warm body close to mine
To whisper words that make you feel like a woman 
Girl I know our love will stand the test of time

Just to be close to you girl
For the moment baby (for the moment baby, for the moment baby) 
For the sugar sugar yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Just to be close to you, girl
Just for the moment baby,
Well just for an hour
Just to be close to you, girl
I need you baby
