Kenny Rankin (1940 - 2009)
I heard on the radio this morning this song, "Next to You" by Kenny Rankin.  It has been a very, very long time since I've heard this song, which brings back memories.  Well, Kenny Rankin songs are just soo soothing and relaxing, you just want to close your eyes and think of the good old days.

But then when I was searching this song in the internet, I found out that Kenny just passed away last July 2009.  My heart skipped a bit for a moment.  So long, Kenny.  Your songs will always be close to my heart.

Here's Kenny Rankin, singing "Next to You". 
Next to You (Lyrics)

If I had me a bag of good wishes
There's no mystery to what I would do
I would use all my magical powers
And try to get next to you

I would bring you a field of flowers
As your lucky star would do
With my heart I would paint you a rainbow
If I could get next to you

There's so much we can share
However far too long

We both know that there's so much here
This is where I belong

Late at night when I close my eyes
Make believin' that you are here
Dreamin' of the things we do
If I could get next to you

In my mind, Ooh ooh, I have kissed you
And it feels like a thousand times
I'd lose track of all the hours
Dreamin' I'm next to you

This is where I belong

Late at night when I close my eyes
Make believin' that you are here
Dreamin' of the things we do
If I could get next to you

In my mind, Ooh ooh, I have kissed you
And it feels like a thousand times
I'd lose track of all the hours
Wishing and hoping
That I could get next to you
