Lir: I've had time to write a book
About the way you act and look
But I haven't got a paragraph
Words are always getting in my way
Anyway, I love you
That's all I have to tell you
That's all I've got to say

And now, I'd like to make a speech
About the love that touches each
But stumbling, I would make you laugh
I feel as though my tongue were made of clay
Anyway, I love you
That's all I have to tell you

I'm not a man of poetry
Music isn't one with me
It runs from me
It runs from me
Lir: And I tried to write a symphony
Amalthea: Once when I was searching
Lir: But I lost the melody
Amalthea: Somewhere out of reach
Lir: Alas I only finished half
Amalthea: Far away
Lir: And finish I suppose I never may
Amalthea: In a place I could not find
Lir: Anyway, I love you
Amalthea: Or heart obey
Lir: That's all I have to tell you
Amalthea: Now that I'm a woman
Lir: That's all I've got to say
Amalthea: Now I know the way
Lir: That's all I've got to say
Amalthea: Now I know the way
Together: That's all I've got to say
