CBC April 2012 Challenge: The 80's. Very different from my usual stuff, but hopefully I have encapsulated every John Hughes film into a song that takes you back to Generation X's coming of age soundtrack!

Story behind the song
I originally had this thing all broken down and analyzed. But in the end, it is a simple, indulgent, bouncy song that hopefully graces the 80's decade in best of fashions. To get the sounds and feel, I spent a lot of time with New Order, Human League, Flock of Seagulls, Gary Numan, Erasure, Echo and the Bunnymen, The Church, Tears For Fears, Joy Division, Thompson Twins, well...you get the picture. I wanted authentic.
Lyrics
I feel your eyes are they scheming I realize that I am dreaming I want you, here close to me And all the time that I’m awake You’re something more than I can take Still I want you, here close to me I can’t believe that love could ever feel like this And heaven could be simply sealed in a kiss I long to hear you say it, say that you want me Over and over my love will enfold her Over and over here close to me I know that look what are you thinking A sensual look have you been drinking It seems that you, want me close to you The time has come for you to show me Do you care, or even know me But I want you, here close to me I can’t believe that love could ever feel like this And heaven could be simply sealed in a kiss I can’t believe that you are, here close to me I can’t believe that we could ever be apart I can’t believe another tore me from your heart I can’t believe that you are, here close to me Why did you just leave me here to sit and die I only wanted you to come and dry my eyes I only want to feel your arms, feel you close to me I’m sorry that I went and found a new romance And all I’m asking now is give me one more chance I promise you that I will hold you Over and over I can’t believe that love could ever feel like this And heaven could be simply sealed in a kiss I can’t believe that you are, here close to me I can’t believe that we could ever be apart I can’t believe another tore me from your heart I can’t believe that you are, here close to me
