ROMANTIC LYRICS, "That's All"
I can only give you love that lasts forever, And the promise to be near each time you call, And the only heart I own is yours and yours alone, that's all, that's all. I can only give you country walks in springtime, And a hand to hold when leaves begin to fall, And a love whose burning light to warm the winter night, that's all, that's all. There are those I am sure who have told you, They will give you the world for a toy. All I ask for these arms to enfold you, and a love, time can never destroy. If you're wond'ring what I'm asking in return, dear, You'll be glad to know that my demands are small. Say it's me that you'll adore for now and ever more, that's all, that's all.
