All of Me
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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 lose them
Take my arms
I'll never use them

Your goodbye
Left me with eyes that cry
How can I
Get along without you

You took the part
That once was my heart
So why not, why not
Take all of me

All of me
Come on get all of me
Can't you see
I'm just a mess without you

Take my lips
I want to lose them
Get a piece of these arms
I'll never use them

Your goodbye
Left me with eyes that cry
How can I
Ever make it without you

You know you got the part
That used to be my heart




So why not, why not
Take all of me

Can't you see
I'm no good without you
Take my lips
I wanna lose them
Take my arms

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..
