カーペンターズが1970年にカバーした『遥かなる影』。この直後の『愛のプレリュード』とともに、カーペンターズの名を世界に知らしめた曲でした!

Why do birds
Suddenly appear?
Everytime you are near

Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

Why do stars
Fall down from the sky?
Everytime you walk by

Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

(*) On the day that you were born
The angels got together and decided
To create a dream come true

So they sprinkled moondust in your hair
Of gold and starlight in your eyes of blue

(**) That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around

Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

Repeat (*)

Repeat (**)

Just like me
They long to be
Close to you
Woo… Close to you…
