I can only give you love that lasts forever
And a promise to be near each time you call
And the only heart I own for you and you alone

That’s all
That’s all

I can only give you country walks in springtime
And a hand to hold when leaves begin to fall
And a love whose burning light will warm the winter night

That’s all
That’s all

There are those, I am sure, who have told you
They would give you the world for a toy
All I have are these arms to enfold you
And a love time can never destroy

If you’re wondering what I’m asking in return, dear
You’ll be glad to know that my demands are small
Say it’s me that you’ll adore for now and ever more

That’s all
That’s all

If you’re wondering what I’m asking in return, dear
You’ll be glad to know that my demands are small
Say it’s me that you’ll adore for now and ever more

That’s all
That’s all

  5. patrick ryan says:

    Much better than her jazzed up version. Sung in thus slower tempo this song more fully emotes and radiates its very warm sentiment. The orchestration lends all the jazz this song will ever need. Nice job Sarah and Quincy. 4/2018

    My Momma said in her day they use to call her "Sassy Vaughn". I asked her why and she said it was the way she carried herself when she sang. I will add "Classy Vaughn."!!

    Check out another version of this song by The Divine One – uploaded by dario burul… anyway, it's upbeat and amazing don't know when she did it but it was certainly later than this one. What a brilliant singer on every level!

    The sweet and unique voice of Beatiful Sarah.

     That might be way more than all except one believes in, but it's not enough. However it does sound like a fine start.

    The Divine One 

  29. Karen Freid says:

    A gorgeous song I just heard only yesterday and had to look it up on youtube.  I was at a street fair in NYC and I followed the sound of it being played on a tenor sax by an elderly gentlemen–great jazz musician–who told me the name. Hearing in sung by the inimitable Sarah Vaughn is such a wonderful treat. 

  30. Daniel Forte says:

    when you can improve on a nat cole song , you must be divine indeed

  31. Stephen Boles says:

    My all-time favorite rendition of this beautiful song! Sassy's voice/phrasing/richness has never sounded better (to me) & the orchestration is sublime! Thank you "1954kirko" for sharing the LP title, & thx to you "roundmidnightTV" for the additional, intriguing details of the recording (in Paris!); Quincy Jones' masterful production/arrangement, etc.!

  32. tonygumbrell22 says:

    Liked this song since I first heard it back in the fifties. And, wow, what an arrangement, and what a beautiful voice. 

  33. infrantasi says:

    Divine Sarah Forever!
