Stephanie Mills - The Closer I Get To You Lyrics

The closer I get to you
The more you'll make me see
Like giving me all you've got
Your love has captured me

Over and over again
I'll try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
And all the while inside
I knew it was real
The way you make me feel

Lying here next to you
Time just seems to fly
Needing you more and more
Let's give love a try

Sweeter than sweeter love grows
And heaven's there for those
Who fool the tricks of time
With the hearts in love you find
True love
In a special way

The closer I get to you
The more you'll make me see
By giving me all you've got
Your love has captured me

Over and over again
I'll try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
And all the while inside
I knew it was real
The way you make me feel

The closer I get to you
The more you'll make me see
By giving you all I've got
Your love has captured me

  38. Kudio j. Hall

    Tom jones was the original OG pimp-alicious, he could sing with ANY female artist and make it seem like they were making love right there on stage; not to mention his vocals were out of this world.

  39. Sharpgirl's Serious

    Sexy Ass Tom Jones ! I have always loved Stephanie Mills ! It's funny how a great singing voice does not guarantee you unparalleled success !

  40. Chan tai

    She’s so beautiful.

  41. GeaDonna Moore

    Tom Jones got me pregnant by me simply watching him perform on the television. Yep. Especially whenever he'd sing: She's A Lady. It was all about the thrust of it. He was so in love with his wife. I read that after she died a few years ago he almost lost his mind. He was very unwell after her passing. I guess his wife was "The Lady"

  42. Shawn Davis

    Love, love, love!!💕

  43. GeaDonna Moore

    How is the world did they get Mr. Jones to sit still? He loves to, well you know, we know how he gets down.

  44. Just Me

    Who sang the original version.... who is this guy.....I never heard of him... her voice is so beautiful..just simply pure and sound natural not forced


    Just Me Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway sang the original version.

  77. Dee Nice

    57 years old I remember the Tom Jones show. I grew up listen to Stephanie Mills Denise William's Regina Bell Miki Howard Anvela Winbush. These lady's could sing there face's off and still can. These so call singers today PLEASE

  78. Rabi'a Keeble

    He was straining to keep up with her vocally but Tom is brave, and fearless, and he put his all into it.

    GeaDonna Moore

    He did rush it a bit. It was still nice though.  Who would of thought these two singers or voices would work. It was nice. It would have been even better if he (Mr. Jones) would have kept it slower and a little bit more easy. All in all I really enjoyed it just the same. Nice job you two. Who would of thought these two would work vocally.

  79. Deseree Bryant

    Tom Jones got just enough soul, not that much but some.

  80. MiA ℝ☮ḉḰϟ

    Sooooo sexy! 😍😊☺️

  81. Ing. Eduardo Mata

    Hermosa cancion.

  82. Ma. Cristina Valeriano

    I wish Tom Jones's Live For Life video will be made available again. The best version of the song, as far as I am concerned. Thanks.

  93. Kim Bronson

    Stephanie has phenomenal voice. Tom is just ok.
