Why do I just wither and forget all resistance When you and your magic pass by My hearts in a dither dear When you're at a distance But when you are near, oh my It's not the pale moon that excites me That thrills and delights me, Oh no Its just the nearness of you It isn't your sweet conversation That brings this sensation, Oh no Its just the nearness of you When you're in my arms And I feel you so close to me All my wildest dreams Came true I need no soft lights to enchant me If you'll only grant me The right To hold you ever so tight And to feel in the night The nearness of you.
