I loved every breathtaking minute,

for how could I know I was sharing

a kiss without a future in it.



You left me a dream to room with,

A coffee pot from Peru,

A knife and fork to spoon with,

Everything but you.

Each day was so gay and so daring,

I loved every breathtaking minute,

for how could I know I was sharing

a kiss without a future in it.



You left me a dream to room with,

A coffee pot from Peru,

A knife and fork to spoon with,

Everything but you.



Everything but you.

You left me everything, everything but you.
