"You Came" is a song by English singer Kim Wilde from her sixth studio album, Close (1988). It was released on 4 July 1988 as the album's second single. The song was written by Wilde and Ricky Wilde, after the birth of his first child, Marty.
"You Came" became one of the most successful singles of Wilde's career, peaking at number three on the UK Singles Chart and reaching the top 10 in several other European countries, including Denmark, where it reached number one for five weeks. In the United States, it was her fourth (and, to date, final) single to reach the top 50, peaking at number 41 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also reached number 10 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.
The song was released during the summer of 1988, while Wilde was supporting Michael Jackson on the European leg of his Bad 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 10 in charts all over the world.
