Lyrics[]

All of me - why not take all of me
Can't you see - I'm no good without you

Take my lips - I want to lose them
Take my arms - I'll never use them

Your good-bye - left me with eyes that cry
How can I - get along without you

You took the part - that once was (used to be) my heart
So why not - why not take all of me
