That's all, that's all there was
Say amen, close the door
She gave as much as she had to give
Please don't ask for more
Please don't ask for more

That's all, the curtain's down
The lights are up, go home
Did I care? Was I in love?
In love enough to know
In love enough to know

There's precious few that line that road
She welled from deep and overflowed
And there's no cup to hold the past
Too rich to drink, too rich to last, that's all

Well, you wish but don't wish for me
As if a wish could cheat the fall
Oh, just believe and leave it be

There's beauty in what's brief
There's beauty in what's small
That's all

There's some who dare and some who shine
And some who only drag behind
And some who reap what others sow
When memories fail, well, who's to know

That's all, that's all there was
Say amen, close the door
She gave as much as she had to give
Oh, please don't ask for more
Please don't ask for more, that's all
