Propinquity (Ive Just Begun To Care) - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by Michael Nesmith
I've known for a long time, the kind of girl you are,
Of the smile that covers teardrops the way your head yields to yourheart,
Of things you've kept inside that most girls couldn't bear,I've known you for a long time but I've just begun to care.I've known of all the heartache and I've known of all the pain,'
Cause I've seen you when the sun shines and I've seen you when itrains,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.I know I've been blind
To not have loved you all this time,
But the image of you wasn't clear,I guess that I've been standing too near.
Oh, it's taken me a while, 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.SOLOI guess that I've been standing too near.
Oh, it's taken me a while, 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 both 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.
