you never give me all the love a woman craves
’cause there’s a part of youth you seem to want to save
i must admit you’re not the man of my dreams
but you’re the closest thing to love i’ve ever seen.
you’re not the kind of man i always hoped to find
but when i’m in your arms i never really mind
cause there’s a feeling that has taken hold of me
‘and it’s the closest thing to love i’ve ever seen.
why should i go looking for somebody new
the closest thing to love i’ve seen is you.
i’d waited for your touch to end this burning fire
but your love always leaves a lot to be desired
yes, there can never be enough of you for me
’cause you’re the closest thing to love i’ve ever seen…
