All of Me Lyrics:

All of me, why not take all of me?
Can’t you see? I’m no good without you
Take my lips, I want to loose them
Take my arms, I’ll never use them

Your goodbye, left me with eyes that cry
How can I go on, dear, without you?
You took the part that once was my heart
So why not take all of me?
