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
