(Burt Bacharach / Hal David)

Tonight will be for the first time
I have learned what my lips are for
And darling, now that I've kissed you
I'm craving to kiss you more

Let me tell you
Long after tonight is all over
Long after tonight is all gone
I'll be yours
For ever and a day and
Yours, come anything that may
You'll always be just everything to me, yeah

Here in my arms
When I hold you
I can feel that the world is mine
Don't go away
Don't you leave me
Or I'll cry 'til the end of time

Let me tell you
Long after tonight is all over
Long after it's all gone
I'll be yours
Come anything that may and
Yours, for ever and a day
You'll always be just everything to me, yeah, mmm, mmm

Let me tell you
Long after tonight is all over
Long after it's all gone
I'll be yours
For ever and a day and
Yours, come anything that may
You'll always be just everything to me, yeah,

Long after tonight is all over
Long after tonight is all over
After it's over and done
After it's over and done, hey, boy, yeah
After it's gone, hey, yeah
After it's gone
Long after
