“Propinquity” Lyrics

I’ve known for a long time the kind of girl you are
Of a smile that covers teardrops
The way your head yields to your heart
Of things you’ve kept inside that most girls could not bear
I’ve known you for a long time, but I’ve just begun to care

I’ve known of all the heartache, I’ve known of all the pain
I’ve seen you when the sun shines
And I’ve seen you when it rains
I’ve seen you make a look of love from just an icy stare
I’ve known you for a long time, but I’ve just begun to care

Oh, I know I’ve been blind
To not have loved you all this time
But the image of you wasn’t clear
I guess I was standing too near

So it’s taken me a while, oh, but I have finally found
What you are to me, and that’s what really counts
And what you are to me is something we can share
I’ve known you for a long time, but I’ve just begun to care

[break]

Oh, I know I’ve been blind
To not have loved you all this time
But the image of you was not clear
I guess I was standing too near

And it’s taken me a while, oh, but I have finally found
What you are to me, and that’s what really counts
And what you are to me is something we can share
I’ve known you for a long time, but I’ve just begun to care
Yes, I’ve known you for a long time, but I’ve just begun to care

Mike: Thank you very much. Thanks, thanks very much. Thank you. That song’s called “Propinquity”, and it means “nearness”. It’s off uh, one of the First National Band albums.
