All I Ask
(J. Clements)

I know you won't believe me when I say this is brand new.
You say I wasn't born this morning, but that's not exactly true.
The past's been preparation for what we're about to do.

So if it's alright with you, love,
I'll try to muddle through, love.
I hope that that'll do.
It's all I ask.

I have never slept so well, or had such lovely dreams.
This morning there were colours such as I've never seen.
If you're as shocked as I am, take all the time you need.

Because it's alright with me, love,
Be just how you'll be, love.
Just make some time for me,
It's all I ask.

I'm not saying that you saved me; let's leave the saving up to God.
I learned the things I needed long before you came along.
I'm just glad I'm holding your hand as life keeps rolling on.

Because it's alright with me, love,
Be just how you'll be, love.
Just make some time for me,
It's all I ask.
And it's alright with you, love,
I'll try to muddle through, love.
I hope that that'll do.
It's all I ask.
