"Now at Last" as written by and Haymes....
Now at last I know
What a fool I've been
For I've lost the last love
I should ever win

And at last I see
How my heart was blind
To the joys before me
That I left behind

When the wind was fresh on the hills
And the stars were new in the sky
And the lark was held in the still
Where was I
Where was I

When the spring is cold
Where do robins go
What makes winters lonely
Now at last I know

When the wind was fresh on the hills
And the stars were new in the sky
And the lark was held in the still
Where was I
Where was I

When the spring is cold
Where do robins go
What makes winters lonely
Now at last I know

    General CommentThis song is absolutely beautiful. Makes me feel sad inside.. in a good way? hahaha.

    Makes me think of just feeling left behind, missing out on all greatness of life, and of feeling low.

    General Commenti totally get what you guys mean about christmas :) i can imagine someone waking up alone on christmas morning and looking at an empty christmas tree, the first christmas they've spent apart from their lover, and being like, wow. why did i give that up?

    beautiful. i love it when she sings 'where was i. . ."

    General CommentThis seemed like Christmas morning - as with many others - perhaps because of the song's simple beauty. I thought the title "Now At Last" meant 'at last I've found love.'

    But when I got curious enough to look up the lyrics I realized I was wrong.

    The song might proceed in opposite: being bitter, then exploring enough to find that it was better to love instead, "but alas."

    Beautiful!
