All I Ask

Album: 25 (2015)

  • I will leave my heart at the door
    I won't say a word
    They've all been said before you know
    So why don't we just play pretend
    Like we're not scared of what's coming next
    Or scared of having nothing left

    Look, don't get me wrong
    I know there is no tomorrow
    All I ask is

    If this is my last night with you
    Hold me like I'm more than just a friend
    Give me a memory I can use
    Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
    It matters how this ends
    'Cause what if I never love again?

    I don't need your honesty
    It's already in your eyes
    And I'm sure my eyes, they speak for me
    No one knows me like you do
    And since you're the only one that matters
    Tell me who do I run to?

    Look, don't get me wrong
    I know there is no tomorrow
    All I ask is

    If this is my last night with you
    Hold me like I'm more than just a friend
    Give me a memory I can use
    Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
    It matters how this ends
    'Cause what if I never love again?

    Let this be our lesson in love
    Let this be the way we remember us
    I don't wanna be cruel or vicious
    And I ain't asking for forgiveness
    All I ask is

    If this is my last night with you
    Hold me like I'm more than just a friend
    Give me a memory I can use
    Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
    It matters how this ends
    'Cause what if I never love again? Writer/s: Adele Laurie Adkins, Bruno Mars, Christopher Brown, Philip Lawrence
