"What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?" as written by and Marilyn Bergman Alan Bergman....
I want to see your face in every kind of light
In fields of dawn and forests of the night
And when you stand before the candles on a cake
Oh, let me be the one to hear the silent wish you make

What are you doing the rest of your life?
North and South and East and West of your life
I have only one request of your life
That you spend it all with me

All the seasons and the times of your days
All the nickels and the dimes of your days
Let the reasons and the rhymes of your days
All begin and end with me

I want to see your face in every kind of light
In the fields of dawn and the forests of the night
And when you stand before the candles on a cake
Oh, let me be the one to hear the silent wish you make

Those tomorrows waiting deep in your eyes
In the world of love that you keep in your eyes
I'll awaken what's asleep in your eyes
It may take a kiss or two

Through all of my life
Summer, Winter, Spring, and Fall of my life
All I ever will recall of my life
Is all of my life with you

    General CommentHow about it if I awaken what's asleep in your eyes?
    Wait ... what might that be? I'm almost afraid to ask ...
    I wasn't going to elaborate.
    Then I won't either.
    But can I?
    What?
    You know ... awaken what's asleep in your eyes ...
    Maybe later. It could be some nightmare is asleep in my eyes. How would I know? No, let's let it sleep.
    You are so chicken!
    That's me--clucking away ...

    General CommentExcerpt of a review—author unknown

    Sting shines with his outstanding rendition of one of the most beautiful compositions of the Bergmans and Legrand, "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?" His vocal artistry is just impeccable. I remember going round the bend over his version of "My One And Only Love" some years ago. It is still one of the most beautiful versions ever recorded.
