I was recently at a wedding where this was read out. It is a beautiful song, and a beautiful poem.
To Be Alone With You
To be alone with you Just you and me Now won't you tell me the true Ain't that the way it oughta be? To hold each other tight The whole night through Ev'rything is always right When I'm alone with you.
To be alone with you At the close of the day With only you in view While evenings slips away It only goes to show That while life's pleasures be few The only one I know Is when I'm alone with you.
They say that nighttime is the right time To be with the one you love Too many thoughts get in the way in the day But you're always what I'm thinkin' of I wish the night were here Bringin' me all of your charms When only you are near To hold me in your arms.
I'll always thank the Lord When my working day's through I get my sweet reward To be alone with you.
