"What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?" as written by Michel Legrand, Alan Bergman and Marilyn 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 CommentI agree, Poison. This song reminds me of old black and white movies where it ends with the guy kissing the girl under the moonlight or something. For me, it's like I can picture a young couple, at the beginning, meeting at a swanky bar. Then at the end they're content in their old age with having spent their lives together. It's about giving your whole self to someone. The first and last lines are my favorite. It's like, devoting your entire existence to loving someone else and the memories you keep are like a shrine to the moments you experienced together. Incredibly romantic, in my opinion. This is also, by far, my favorite version of this song.
