Watch Closely Now (Streisand Barbra)

Words and music by Paul Williams and Kenny Ascher Sung by: Kris Kristofferson A Star is Born soundtrack, 1976 Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson Watch closely now You'll observe a curious exchange of energy Are you a figment of my imagination Or am I one of yours? Watch closely now Are you watching me now? Your eyes are like fingers They're touching my body And arousing my soul Riding the passion arising inside me How high can I go? You're comin' with me girl, I'm gonna show you how When it's scarey, don't look down Watch closely now Are you watching me now? I see the hunger arise in your eyes And it's urging me on Higher and harder and faster and farther Than I've ever gone You're coming closer lady; don'tcha leave me now We're gonna make it, don't look down Maybe I'm takin' me too many chances With no net at all Maybe I'll teach you at least that you've got to be free when you fall Watch closely now Are you watching me now? I'm the master magician Who's setting you free From the lies you've been told When you're breaking your back Bring your last straw to me I turn straw into gold I'm gonna need you later, when you're not around But I can take it, don't look down Watch closely now... Are you watching me now?
