Mel Tormé - After The Waltz Is Over



After the waltz is over
After the music ends
After I held you so close in my arms
We'll be much more than friends
After the waltz is over
All conversation dies
What could our lips say
That we haven't said with our eyes

I could waltz through life with you

We'll make wedding bells chime
In three-quarter time

I don't care if the party's ending
Or if the clock's striking one
I never dreamed when we danced at the start
One little waltz could go straight to my heart
After the waltz is over
We'll find that love has begun

I don't care if the party's ending
Or if the clock's striking one
I never dreamed when we danced at the start
One little waltz could go straight to my heart
Give me a little house and
Let me have you for my spouse and
Once we cadenza by Strauss and
Let me go waltzing through life
