When love was all
 

Fast rivers flow by waterfalls

Where we first met and love was all

A flimsy dress that caught the wind

A bed of grass, a midnight swim

 

Do I remember? Yes I do

The stars, the night, the moon and you

In heaven's arms I quite forgot

How far to go and when to stop

 

But 'twas not I alone beguiled

For I recall soft flesh on fire

The plea for love at any price

What fools we were, but what a night

 

Charm, attract, entice, enchant

Woo, bewitch, deceive, entrap

A lover's list to break the heart

But did we care? No, we did not

 

Fast rivers still flow where we lay

And I'd go back there any day

The river bank, the waterfall

The girl, the night, when love was all
