Edie Adams – That’s All

For those celebrating, and to my honey….. Happy Valentine’s day.

That’s All
Lyrics & Music by Alan Brandt and Bob Haymes, 1952
[brackets indicate Edie Adams’ variation on the song]

I can only give you love that lasts forever
And a [the] promise to be near each time you call
And the only heart I own for you and you 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 will warm the winter night
That’s all, that’s all

There are those I am sure [who] have told you
They would give you the world for a toy
All I have are these arms to enfold you
And a love even time can’t destroy
[And a love time can never destroy]

If you’re wondering 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 evermore
That’s all, that’s all

[the following are not part of the original composition and what makes Edie Adams’ version so special and unique]

I love you
Yes, I love you
That’s all….
