The Closer I Get to You" is a romantic ballad performed by African American jazz, soul, R&B, and folk singer-songwriter Roberta Flack and African American soul musician Donny Hathaway. The song was written by James Mtume and Reggie Lucas, two former members of Miles Davis's band, who were members of Flack's band at the time. Produced by Atlantic Records, the song was released on Flack's 1977 album Blue Lights in the Basement, and as a single in 1978.

Lying here next to you Time just seems to fly Needing you more and more Let's give love a try. Oh, sweeter than sweeter love grows And heaven's there for those Who fool the tricks of time With the hearts in love they find True love In a special way. The closer I get to you The more you make me see By giving me all you've got Your love has captured me. 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. Flack and Donny Hathaway, good friends while attending Howard University, recorded a self-titled album of duets in 1972. Five years later, the duo collaborated again on The Closer I Get to You. The Closer I Get to You was not originally written as a duet. Flack’s manager David Franklin, who had worked with Hathaway in the past, decided to re-write the song to include him.

That being said, every time I hear this song, and also "Where is the love?", the window in the car goes up and I sing like Donnie Hathaway (alright, probably not).
