Sinatra, Frank - What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life? Lyrics



I want to see your face in every kind of light
In fields of dawn and forests of the night
And when you stand before the candles on a cake
Oh, let me be the one to hear the silent wish you make

What are you doing the rest of your life?
North and South and East and West of your life
I have only one request of your life
That you spend it all with me

All the seasons and the times of your days
All the nickels and the dimes of your days
Let the reasons and the rhymes of your days
All begin and end with me

I want to see your face in every kind of light
In the fields of dawn and the forests of the night
And when you stand before the candles on a cake
Oh, let me be the one to hear the silent wish you make

Those tomorrows waiting deep in your eyes
In the world of love that you keep in your eyes
I'll awaken what's asleep in your eyes
It may take a kiss or two

Through all of my life
Summer, Winter, Spring, and Fall of my life
All I ever will recall of my life
Is all of my life with you

  1. MK Sounds

    That's not age you hear, that's experience. This one is up there with "Didn't We", "Drinkin' Again", "I'll Only Miss Her When I Think of Her", and "The Gal That Got Away/It Never Entered My Mind".

  2. Kevin Spicer

    Perfection

  3. Diana Beurman

    BEST VERSION! GIVES ME CHILLS!!

    😃⤴️♥️

  5. Always Sinatra

    Foe the rest of my life I will always listen to Sinatra 💕

  6. power

    When I hear this I can’t help but smile. It was my grandparents wedding song and one day it’ll be mine too

  7. John Pulham

    As a Sinatra lover I came to this song late. How did I miss it? It is simply beautiful. What an interpretation. Michel and Frank...thank you.

  8. MARCOS VILLARIM

    so beautiful oh my Lord

  9. debb beck

    What are you doing the rest of your life?
    North and south and east and west of your life?
    I have only one request of your life
    That you spend it all with me.
    All the seasons and the times of your days.
    All the nickels and the dimes of your days.
    Let the reasons and the rhymes of your days.
    All begin and end with me.
    I want to see your face,
    In every kind of light,
    In fields of gold and
    Forests of the night;
    And when you stand before
    The candles on a cake.
    Oh let me be the one to hear
    The silent wish you make.
    Those tomorrows waiting deep in your eyes
    In the world of love you keep in your eyes,
    Ill awaken what's asleep in your eyes,
    It may take a kiss or two..
    Through all of my life..
    Summer, winter, spring and fall of my life,
    All I ever will recall of my life
    Is all of my life with you.

  10. Lex Monteriggioni

    Best version of song

    Allan Lazarus

    I agree that this is the best MALE version. Among FEMALE versions, I would say either Rosemary Clooney or Laura Fygi.

  11. Rob Lewis

    The master in his workshop.

  12. Edmund Liu

    His voice always gives me the chill, no matter in his golden age or late age. Some people are meant to be great and he is absolutely one of them.

  13. Jesus Castanares

    OPINION:

    BOTH ARE GOOD: FRANK SINATRA AND JACK JONES.

  14. Mark Kinsler

    And that would be Nelson Riddle's arrangement.

  15. john gallio

    simply the best!

  16. Tian Wang

    I want to see your face in every kind of light
    In fields of dawn and forests of the night
    And when you stand before the candles on a cake
    Oh, let me be the one to hear the silent wish you make

    What are you doing the rest of your life?
    North and South and East and West of your life
    I have only one request of your life
    That you spend it all with me

    All the seasons and the times of your days
    All the nickels and the dimes of your days
    Let the reasons and the rhymes of your days
    All begin and end with me

    I want to see your face in every kind of light
    In the fields of dawn and the forests of the night
    And when you stand before the candles on a cake
    Oh, let me be the one to hear the silent wish you make

    Those tomorrows waiting deep in your eyes
    In the world of love that you keep in your eyes
    I'll awaken what's asleep in your eyes
    It may take a kiss or two

    Through all of my life
    Summer, Winter, Spring, and Fall of my life
    All I ever will recall of my life
    Is all of my life with you

  17. Rob Lewis

    The last bar, with the low note, cracks me up every time. Just a great note.

  18. Ana Martinez

    I love it

  19. terry paul

    LOVE THIS!

  20. Sam Chianello

    Michel Legrand composed this piece.

  21. The Deplorable Jared Brodersen / Trump 2020!

    Wow! Such a beautiful song. So perfect.

  22. Rob Lewis

    One of the great love songs of the ages. "All I ever will recall of my life, IS all of my life with you." The low note on IS cracks me up every time I hear it. That's pure Sinatra.

  23. robertrstevens

    .... Right !   What all the others here have said !  Long Live Frank !

  24. 倉田正彦

    I want to see your face .... How Beautiful .... LOVE from Japan, Masahiko Mickey Kurata / Masahiko Kurata / Mickey Kurata.

  33. All About My Art

    Finding a perfect SUNG version of this beautiful song is impossible. If it were just Frank and a piano, minus the over the top, Vegas flourishes I might have loved this. This beaurltuful song is meant to be FELT.

  34. Janet Silvers

  37. govcalif

    we live in piglike squalor today; all the greats are dead and gone.

    There is a beautiful instrumental version of this song by Archie Shepp on the album Déja Vu.

  43. MK Sounds

    When his voice had all the tones of living these songs. My heart is grateful for his music, my life better for having heard it.
    MK

  44. Adel Mou

    I hope that Frank Sinatra is singing a lot of songs in heaven.

  45. Rob Lewis

    The voice is rougher at this stage, but the greatness is still there. The low D at the end, "IS all of my life with you" cracks me up. Very poignant.

  46. Chris Pelling

    Thanks frank a life time of pleasure!!CP

  47. Clinton Langford

    ... the Voice ... this man was (still is) the Best! ...

  48. David Garrick

    I didn't think anything could beat Streisand's version. Yet this which was out of his comfort zone a little and quite gutsy given where his voice was at. BUT it could never be bettered. God he conquered it. It is THE interpretation for this song and like most things he did will never be bettered. His voice is tuned to us so emotionally. I can't quite understand but I love it.

  49. Kenneth Crowell Jr

    Even 2Pac was a Big Sinatra Fan!! You know he is great when other greats recognize him!! Sinatra is the Truth!!!!!!!

  50. Pascal Bretaire

    magic frank.

  51. Teresa Bradley

    I will forever and always Love 💜Frank Sinatra. I didn't have the pleasure of seeing him sing Live and in Person😕Perhaps if I had, I would have surely fainted. Bestill My Heart...

  52. larry tebo

    No man could ever express the feelings of a man deeply in love more fully and honestly than Frank Sinatra. Nobody.

  53. Eisen J Eisen

    I dedicate this song to my Swiss Angel Marina of Zurich, Switzerland  from the great Frank Sinatra

  54. Sondra Bowers

    The love of my life, sang this to me. He's gone now, but, I have my memories of a once in a lifetime love.

    Angela Levey

    I know what you mean, so much, this made me cry, reading what you said,

  55. Timothy Dunn

    The chairman of the board! !

  56. carriere 29

    SINATRA + M . LEGRAND / MAGNIFIQUE !!!!!!!!!

  57. Anna Cottage

    There never will be anyone like him, always loved his music, even the swinging sixties I preferred Sinatra. Thank you for this, Anna.

  58. Richard Condon

    He steps up to the mice and stops just short of blowing a fuse. that's his take with his basso voice, his lyric reading, a love song that echoes on. Wow, how did he know ?

  59. Crochet Lass

    To you my beloved mom and dad,.....I will never be the same again, since you went away......

  60. Eisen J Eisen

    Frank Sinatra is the chairman of the board

  61. Eisen J Eisen

    Please send this to Marina in swisspeek !!! Thank You

  62. Raymond Louis Llompart

    The WISDOM and POWER and HUMANITY with which this man SANG!!!!--------what a MIRACLE!...................aaah.........but the sorrow every time I hear it........a marriage of 10 years, and "I want to see your life....."-----------but no, oh no, Dear Friends--------------the person cannot stand you anymore (and quite truly) and there is no more of Mr. Sinatra's song.................Why am I writing these things?!...It's 16 years already!!!!...........

  63. Hector Pablo Pablo

    Sinatra empieza con la segunda parte de la canción para ser efectista, está bien por él, pero se pierde el enfoque original de menos a más

  64. Rita Benson

    He is still the man, I love his voice

  65. William T. Mitchell

    Now listen to Abbey Lincoln's version!

  66. Richard Condon

    Voice coming close to high c just short of moving up one octave. Ttry it when you sing. That and the ability to hold breath like a pearl diver. That's all this takes.

  67. Stargazer26

    One of his greatest songs of the later period.

  68. Richard Condon

    at this point he was developing new vocal abilities. the expression and the arrangements reached new levels and created sinatra in his and anyones ultimate depth. it was sinatra two !

    Jerry D'Arezzo

    Just brilliant commentary

  69. KLAUS MAARTENS

    What a song! It brings unforgettable memories! Thank you blue eyes!

  70. Michael Guagenti

    I used this for our marriage vows.A mature Frank but still the best.He had a way of making it all his.

  71. Sam Washington

    This is his best version!

  72. Gus Dogas

    Love this song by Frank Sinatra ! Love All of his music !!

  73. Just Jeanne

    Dayum..... could anyone inhabit a song more than Frank? I wonder......

    M.J. Leger

    The answer to that is an unequivocal, resounding NO! I heard him sing this live and it was amazing. I sang this song and unashamedly copied his phrasing in it. No problem since I never recorded it. Sinatra was just the best ever!

    David TOLSON

    Jack Jones...

    Chris N

    @David TOLSON Streisand

  74. spideraxis

    It's a lovely song.   But it makes me think of my beloved mother, who has gone to be with God.

  75. roger jc hautekeer

    quelle formidable prononciation ...on comprend la chanson du début  à la fin ..exceptionnel...and I am french speaking...

  76. frank Cross

    Mr. Sinatra recorded this song in 1974, he was past his prime but did one hellava job !

    Just Jeanne

    maybe he was further into his prime? just wondering....

    Gene Tomczak

    I agree with Just Jeanne.

    Just Jeanne

    Amen Brother.... Amen.

    frank Cross

    yep, your right !

  77. tenor man

    In Sinatra's lovely earlier studio version of this beautiful Legrand/Bergman song, he is obviously in more pristine voice. Yet, the slight raggedness of that, still gorgeous voice, adds greater poignancy and moves moves me deeply . RIP Frances . Miss you greatly

    Life goes on

    tenor man i think this is good , he used 1974 technologies which means better quality record

  78. Yves MER

    any words. just admiration!!!

  79. Richard Condon

    unusual orchestration.

  80. Loren Cosby

    Nobody sang this thing better.

    Loren Cosby

    +frank “mustang man” Cross
    I couldn't agree with you more Mustang Man.

    Smith Smith

    +Loren Cosby My favorite is Barbra Streisand's version which is beautiful and worth checking out, but it's really a matter of personal preference.

    Loren Cosby

    +YT Smith Yes, it is. Both are larger-than-life talents. I always detect a lot of yearning/longing/losing in Sinatra's voice.

    David TOLSON

    Yes they did. Jack Jones...

    Ben Griffin

    I particularly prefer Scott Walker to Sinatra

  81. Jenette Brewster

    Loverlie ! But DONT forget the man who wrote this song a certain Micheal Legrand I believe. Written just inside of Frankie'stime range.  Beautifully rendered.   WOW.!!

    Richard Condon

    +Jenette Brewster michael died not but a few years ago. he was still working on his music with his small band. se if you can find the performance done around 2005 in france. he never got worse. he was always true human genius. one of the best composers of the 20th century which led to the acceptance of tom jobim who was equally effected by french composers. jenette, you have a fine ear.

    Mauricio Durón

    +Richard Condon As I understand it, Mr. Legrand remains with us.

    Richard Condon

    +Mauricio Durón as i have since found out and happy for it. thanks mauricio.

    Jeffrey Schwartz

    Alan Bergman and Marilyn Bergman wrote the lyrics. Legrand wrote the music.

    Miriam Cauberg

    RIP Legrand!! Today he pasted away........ :'-(

  82. Richard Condon

    another example of sinatra finding the best music and putting his take on it. normally he's playing to the horn section but on this one it's the strings. it's unbelievable that this took place. so many singers were doing this song. the composer had to know he had written a great piece of music when frank did it. as usual it is done with respect and pays attention to what the song was meant to portray in feeling and mood. and then what lyrics. this is a great love song.

  83. Victor Formosa

    what a song what a singer wow!

  84. Jordan Grenyion-Smith

    my mom and dad named me after Frank....he's silll the man !

    Jordan Grenyion-Smith

    +Jordan Grenyion-Smith my bad !

  85. OnePunch-Man

    Damn, dude. Goosebumps.

  86. billeybop

    When music places you into the intended mood it has succeeded as intended! :)

  87. saintcruzin

    He may be older here but his interpretation plus Don Costa's wonderful arrangement is still outstanding. As he aged it was good day bad day but 80% Sinatra is still better than all the rest. Great love song beautifully done....

  88. croonlover

    the master voice!

  89. juan pineda

    so romantic

    juan pineda

    i love that song

  90. Ray Giammarco

    Frank had his own style absolutely perfect, pretty good for a saloon singer, tops in my record albums.

  91. Fred Modugno

    All the nickels and the dimes of your days. So beautiful.

  92. GERSHWINGAL7

    What can i say?  My favorite singer singing one of my top 3 composer's music! 

    Albert Davis

    This is Gershwin? Wow. Frank brings this to life.

    Thierry Lemaire

    Composer is Michel Legrand actually. :-)

  93. karen mulhern

    This may be one of the nicest, most beautiful love songs ever recorded. I remember my father playing it on the stereo...anyone remember those? ;)  
    Beautiful!

    David Mccreery

    Precious song

    All About My Art

    Yeah. I remember very well ☺

    Michael Saint-Clair

    Still have one

  94. Eileen Bennett

    I still melt every time I hear this song.

    Eileen Bennett

    most definitely.

    Drake Blackwood

    Eileen Bennett you're an incredibly beautiful woman - when I hear this song, I think of women like you

    Eileen Bennett

    Bless your heart, Drake.

    frank Cross

    Get a room !

    Miriam Cauberg

    in tears...... so beautiful... only Frank...

  95. TheInvincibleViolet

    LOVE IT XXXXX !!!

  96. Gerson NIÑO

    Para muchos sera New york, pero para mi esta es la mejor canción de Sinatra !!!! 

  97. frank Cross

    your still the man frank  RIP

  98. Katherine Drabek

    Defining "turgid" and "overwrought " at 3:06.  Don Costa was no Nelson Riddle.

    frank Cross

    @Katherine Drabek  I agree !

    Gene Tomczak

    Was still a great arrangement........

  99. Randy Lacey

    Who is after Sinatra! NO ONE PERIOD. There will never be another Sinatra

    frank Cross

    +Randy Lacey Nancy !
