Lyrics

At last
my love has come along
my lonely days over
and life is like a song

Ooh At last
the skies above are blue
well my heart was wrapped up in clover
the night I looked at you

I found a dream
that I could speak to
a dream that I could call my own
I found a thrill
to press my cheek to
a thrill that I have never known

well

You smile
you smile
oh and then the spell was cast
and here we are in heaven
for you are mine at last

I found a dream
that I could speak to
a dream that I
could call my own
I found a thrill
to press my cheek to
a thrill that I have never known

well

You smile
you smile
oh and then the spell was cast
and here we are in heaven
for you are mine at last

ooo yea
you are mine
you are mine
at last
at last
at last
at las

ChrissyMdBride says...
This song is so special to me. I have loved Etta James since I first heard her from my grandfather's record player. When my fiance hear this song, he said " I want this to be our song"- I almost wept. I had always hoped this would be our first song. He is irish and I love the fact that it says "My heart was wrapped up in clovers, the night I looked at you." It was true. He stole my heart from our very first date.

Andreya says...
Nobody else will ever make another song like this...simply classic...

Paula Anne says...
I love this song, especially when it has so much meaning in our story. We were high school sweethearts, had a daughter, lost touch for alomst 15 years and got back together nearly 20 years after we first met. His is my first love and will be my last. I could not have ever predicted that we would somehow manage to find eachother again after all these years. As of right now this is at the top of my list for First dance as husband & wife!

DARLENE says...
THIS WILL BE OUR LAST DANCE SONG.

rtbuford says...
This was our first dance song. Funny thing was...we didn't pick it. It was my caller tune on my phone as sort of a joke and the guy at the chapel heard it and surprised us with it. We didn't even know we were going to get a dance. Love it!!!!

Perfect song

Tia says...
I agree Christine....Circa....American Idol

Zahra says...
We are using this song... Love it!

Bee says...
One word: OVERDONE!

I would love to attend a wedding that doesn't feature this song! Don't get me wrong, it's a perfect song for a first dance. But a lot of people choose this song.

Stephanie & Wesley says...
I keep seeing people saying this song is outdone, but honestly, I have no idea why. The last 3 weddings I have been to, it wasn't played at any time during the wedding.

We haven't picked a fist dance song yet, but this is definitely on the short list of options.

The 3D'S says...
I love this song.

Lisa&Ray says...
yup great Song....

Adrienne says...
love this song

Teresa says...
This is going to be the song for our first dance. I love it

Perfect! Love it! This song makes my heart leap for joy and makes me want to cry like a baby.
