 Bm7-5        E7       Am	       Am+7  Am7
What are you doing the rest of your life?

          Am7/9               F          FM7	
North and south and east and west of your life?

                 Dm7             Dm6
I have only one request of your life--

         Bm7-5             E7
That you spend it all with me.

Bm7-5       E7          Am            Am+7  Am7
All the seasons and the times of your days,

        Am7/9            F             FM7
All the nickels and the dimes of your days;

          Dm7           Dm6
Let the reasons and the rhymes of your days

    Em7-5      A7      DM7
All begin and end with me.


         Bm7-5	            E7/9   E7      AM7  A6
I want to see your face in ev'ry kind of light,

    Bm7-5             E7/9             AM7   A6	
In fields of dawn and forests of the night;

             Dm               Dm7          CM7
And when you stand before the candles on a cake,

     F#m7         B7               E     Bm7-5     E7
Oh, let me be the one to hear the silent wish you make.

Bm7-5     E7             Am          Am+7  Am7
Those tomorrows waiting deep in your eyes,

       Am7/9              F            FM7
In the world of love you keep in your eyes,

     Dm7             Dm6
I'll awaken what's asleep in your eyes--

        Bm7-5         E7
It may take a kiss or two.

        Dm	        Bm7-5
Through all of my life,

         E7/9             FM7
Summer, winter, spring and fall of my life,

All I ever will recall of my life 

Dm7 Bm7-5	    E7-9  E7      Am   Bm7-5  E7  Am			
Is  all of my life     with you.
