At last

We are alone, we are together, at last
The rest of the world could be future or past
But now we are together, at last

    You reach for my hands we hold one another
    Each of us safe in the arms of a lover
    Slowly, so slowly, our fingers unwind
    Each of us unsure, yet so sure what we’ll find

We are alone, we are together, at last
The rest of the world could be future or past
But now we are together, at last

    Now my hands are upon you, as yours are on me
    And we slowly reveal all that we want to see
    And we linger and feel, we caress and we tease
    We both seem to know just the right way to please

We are alone, we are together, at last
The rest of the world could be future or past
But now we are together, at last

    Wrapped in each other and in love and in lust
    Driven by passions to the places we must
    My lips on your body, your lips are on mine
    So tenderly touching as we slowly recline

We are alone, we are together, at last
The rest of the world could be future or past
But now we are together, at last

    Our bodies together, one inside the other
    Safe and secure as each other’s lover
    Time has adjourned, its progress has halted
    Love builds on lust our passions exulted

We are alone, we are together, at last
The rest of the world could be future or past
But now we are together, at last

    In time we relax are passions are sated
    We think of each other, the love we’ve created
    Time will resume soon, the world will intrude
    But we two together had this brief interlude

We are alone, we are together, at last
The rest of the world could be future or past
But now we are together, at last

    Slowly you dress, I watch, I admire
    My love for you soars, it rekindles my fire
    But our time together, for this day, has passed
    We must wait ’til once more, we’re together, at last
