The Closer I Get To You

The Closer I Get to You is a 70s romantic ballad performed by Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway. It has been revived several times now –  Beyonce and Luther Vandross released an R&B version in 2003 and MYMP made an acoustic cover in 2005.

However, nothing beats the special rendition of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in the movie Rush Hour 3.


Over and over again
I 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
