At Length

 

It’s too soon to say it’s so

But it’s been long enough to know

I’m in love with you

You’re somebody I can trust

To turn dust into love and lust

I’m in love anew

 

At length the rest will follow

Eve’ if we’re poor

I won’t falter at the altar

You’re whom I adore

 

She could be the mother of my daughter

And I could be the father of her son

Oh, I could really use someone to die for

And she could always use someone to hold

 

How’s it that your pretty face

Is wildly riddled with such grace

I’m in love with you

Just in case you’re unaware

Your beauty best befits you bare

I’m in love anew

 

At length we’ll live together

Rich with rapport

Hearts are fleeting, mine’s still beating

With profuse ardor

 

She could be the mother of my daughter

And I could be the father of her son

Oh, I could really use someone to die for

And she could always use someone to hold
