  • Watching daybreak, chase shadows from you, as you cling to sleep
    There`s a moment in my world, when I don`t want to breathe
    Just want to be silently close to you

    I see myself as a hand me down, all broken in
    I see myself tattered and torn, I can be brand new
    When I`m close to you

    Don`t ever let anyone ever tell me what it is they think I need
    Because they`ve never seen the way you look at me
    As if there`s something in me that nobody else can see
    I keep one hand in the filth of my life, one hand I keep for you
    You bring me up, you bring me out, you bring me in
    I want to be, I want to be close to you

    When I`m close to you
    You never see things the way I did
    Instead I find I ain`t satisfied with the man, the man I think I am

    Anything you want, anything you need
    I want to be the one you come to, I want to be the one you run to
    I want to be the only one to, I want to be close to you

    You`ve been too far away
    [Lyrics to "Close to You" (new version 1999/2000)]
    Watching daybreak, chase shadows from you, as you cling to sleep
    There`s a moment in my world, when I don`t want to breathe
    Just want to be quietly close to you

    I keep one hand in the filth of my life, one hand I keep for you
    When restless ones tear at my sleeve
    You`re the comfort I believe in
    I want to be, I want to be close to you

    I see myself as a hand me down, all broken in
    And I see myself, I`m tattered and torn, I can be brand new
    When I`m close to you
    I never see things the way I did
    Instead I find I ain`t satisfied with this man, the man I think I am

    You know it`s true
    Anything you want (yeah), anything you need
    I want to be the one you come to, I want to be the one you run to
    I want to be the only one too, I want to be close to you
