It's just the nearness of you

It's not the pale moon that excites me
Baby, that thrills and delights me
Oh no, it's just the nearness of you

It's not that your sweet conversation
That brings, brings this sensation
Oh no, it's just the nearness of you

When I'm in your arms and I feel you so close, so close to me
You know baby all of those wildest dreams they come true

(It's not ?) that way, baby, that you enchant me
If only you'd grant me
Ooh the right to kiss and hold you so tight

Oh feel, feel in the night
The nearness of you
The nearness, baby, the nearness
To feel, yes, the nearness of you

So maybe I'm afraid a little now, you know what I mean?

Feel in the night
The nearness, baby, the nearness, the nearness of you
Oh yeah, baby, baby
The nearness of you

One love...
