"Nothing Left to Say"

I have waited all my life
To spend this minute with you
Planning each word in advance
Everything thing I might do

If you only look my way
Grant me a last request
Just half a moment longer
To live a life that's blessed

The sun is rising on a cloudless day
Fog is burning slowly from the bay
You're still leaving and I'm still here
And there's nothing left to say

All Too soon the moments over
Fleeting in the autumn sun
The Drifting leaves continue falling
Knowing you and I were one

A lifetime spreading out behind me
The past is softer on my heart
I can replay in vivid color
Every moment from the start
