  • To be alone with you
    Just you and me
    Now won't you tell me true
    Ain't that the way it oughta be
    To hold each other tight
    The whole night through
    Everything is always right
    When I'm alone with you

    To be alone with you
    At the close of the day
    With only you in view
    While evening slips away
    It only goes to show
    That while life's pleasures be few
    The only one I know
    Is when I'm alone with you

    They say that nighttime is the right time
    To be with the one you love
    Too many thoughts get in the way in the day
    But you're always what I'm thinkin' of
    I wish the night were here
    Bringin' me all of your charms
    When only you are near
    To hold me in your arms

    I'll always thank the Lord
    When my working day's through
    I get my sweet reward
    To be alone with you Writer/s: BOB DYLAN
