«You Came» is the second single from the Kim Wilde album Close.

The single became one of the biggest hits of her long career topping the charts throughout Europe and reaching #3 in the UK Singles Chart. Although it did not continue her United States success, on the pop chart, it peaked at number ten on the dance chart.

The song was released during the summer of 1988, while Wilde was supporting Michael Jackson on the European leg of his tour (the video for «You Came» showed material from the concerts as well as backstage footage). With the Close album becoming a best-seller, this was arguably the point where Wilde was at the pinnacle of her career as «You Came» reached the top ten in charts all over the world.

The song was written by Wilde and her brother after the birth of his first child, Marty.
