Walker, Scott - What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life? Lyrics




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

  3. wellandtruly joshed

    Beautiful man beautiful voice ❤️ RIP Scott 💔 I will continue to listen to your outstanding sounds for the rest of my life😢👏

  4. Randall Sundeen

    Probably one of the most prolific love songs ever music from the late sixties early seventies has always been in my opinion the most creative periods Stereo sound was new orchestras were still plentiful and creative lyrics flowed from mid century poets!

  5. Joachim König

    ICH LIEBE DIE MUSIK DER WALKER-BROTHERS-BA ALL IHRE HITS AUF CD!!! TOLLER SÄNGER--BESCHISSENES LIED!!! ER KANN SICH NOCH SO VIEL MÜHE GEBEN WIE ER WILL...…...

  6. John Anthony

    No man in popular music has ever touched his class and high quality. Scott was way out there the very best. So glad he made his home in UK. Meet you on the ledge Scott.

  7. John Anthony

    Been listening to Scott for so very long -I usually prefer his own songs but this is so right for me and my love for the girl I married in 66....trouble is she hates Scott.......

  21. Melissa Schroeter

    the life that showed up and lived...... as well as could be...... not making a difference to change any thing..... but so badly trying to ........ believing lov e could ...

  22. Brian Wayes

    What a sentimental lot we are. Just shows we all have regrets but as Willie Nelson said........”There’s nothing I can do about it now”

  23. paul hurford

    Lovely arrangement. That chair squeaky for two inches.

  24. Rex Albright

    I love those songs and his great voice. Can't understand why he did not continue in that style.

  25. Aaron Marchant - Poetry and Verse

    Beyond beautiful.

  26. Artemisiainspain

  27. Marilyn Allem

    Such a beautiful voice. Takes me back to student days.

  28. CHRISTY T.S.

    Thank you for the upload.

  29. Fred Bloggs

    What a beautiful love song, got me in tears.

  30. ConnCollector

    Scott Walker was singer with the Walker Brothers in the 1960's.
    In this video we have an incredible singer and an incredible song brought together in one of my favorite performances of all time.
    God bless.

  31. Wendy MacKenzie

    The best ever rendition of one of the most beautiful songs ever written. I weep every time I hear it.

  32. Tom Perry

    Person who gave this the thumbs down (either a Dusty Springfield fan) or 100% dead inside. Scott nails this song.

    Gary Martin

    I am a huge Dusty fan but this just eclipses that version, he is a god like genious after all, I think the song is better with a baritone voice, I can't comprehend how anyone would thumbs down this incredible performance...

    June Bermingham

    @Gary Martin I agree with you gary, Scott has such a unique voice, we will never hear another like him.

  33. Matilda Martin

    A very good job delivers well for a young person wow

  34. Deborah

    like this... but like jack jones version just as much.. is there a matt munro version i'm wondering...

    Stephen Kavanagh

    I first heard Scot in 1967. A dear girl friend in Fulham by name of Linda Jenkins revealed him and the walker brothers to me. Scot has a bigger than life sound to his voice. Still enjoy listening to his songs even though he has passed from this life

  35. Mac Macalino

    The best rendition song I've ever heard .... simple and classy . Bravo and thanks for sharing 👍

    gbpnz

    One of the great love songs.

  36. Daniel Jones

    How good is Scott Walkers voice pure velvet so under rated.

  37. Carol Knight

    come sing to me Scott, I'd have your pants off in a shot. that deep velvety voice. I adore youuujuuj. xoxo

  38. Ossy Gumelar

    A simple, yet beautiful rendition of the song!

  41. Roberto Mercado

    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

    @Roberto Mercado thank you for the words Roberto

  42. spainishgirl

    Oh my. So very, very beautiful.

  43. thethe111 t

    How in love I was with Scott when I was very young!

  44. Wally Toynbee

    So much better than the Frank Sinatra version.

  45. Mikhail Kolotov

    Как же божественно, спасительно сейчас для меня, как осення листва навстречу мне с ветром в лицо веет музыка, слова, атмосферность мира...

  46. geminiwednesday16

    What am I doing the rest of my life???....well,I won't be into extreme sports,I won't be travelling the World...I won't be striving to be a super-model or famous film star...(I wish??!)....I won't be on the Moon...I will simply be me,as I always have ever been..........yet,thankfully I have blessed to have been in a special time.....
    This gorgeous song can fulfill  daydreams enough; a beautiful voice with a song to give joy a wistful melancholy....just moments in time that are beautiful can mean more may yet be ahead,in the "rest of your life"..

    .it doesn't need to take a lot to bring a lovely smile to someone's heart.This beautiful song,this beautiful voice from my youthful era can still do that.  Filled with romantic,gentle passion..a desire for the loved one...wanting to be involved in that certain person's future for the "rest of your life"...


      How todays' generations are so sadly losing out on all that can be emotionally special...yet they truly cannot see it.   The internet has seen to that,unfortunately.
       Ah,well...that is progress.............?  K xx

    Thank you for these thoughts.I have a beautiful,thoughtful wife that I've married to for 36 years and known for 48 years.The words of this song express my feelings perfectly and just being with her is all I need.Thank you Scott for a wonderful song.

    Danny Barrett

    .Gemini....Your words are very touching, in the sense..of the greatest of .simplier times...I call the era of romance at it's height...all now but ..gone...except thankfully in ..u tubes.. I hope this finds you well...in your love..kindly, Danny Barrett..

    Geoff Beresford

    Sadly, you are quite correct and moreover, the emotional dumbing down of today's generation has all been a part of a deliberate scheme by the ruling elite, which in the process has systematically steered the younger ones away from the finer things of life itself towards more and more crudity, vulgarity, and a taste for violent imagery in almost every field of endeavour. Hold fast to sensitivity!

  47. Charles Furlow

    check out the documentary, "30th Century Man". He also a new record out soon, "Bisch Bosch". Enjoy! ----Virginia, wife of cmfurlowiv

  48. lyn turner

    was just about to tell guido she had made an error as my brain tells me this is not on 'til the band comes in'; looking at the vinyl now and it is, age is getting to me, should have known she would not make a mistake!

  49. p m

    I cannot believe he did this song! What a great song and now by him! Couldn't ask for anything better! I need to go buy this. Thanks for posting!

  50. GRHCU

    this is just really, really good!!

  51. Floppy sunhat

    Thank you so much for this beautiful ballad. I've always wondered why he never made a recording devoted to all Michel Legrand's ballads like Jack Jones and many other artists have done! Scott Walker's voice is tailored made for Legrand's romantic & sumptuously strings laden ballads!!

  52. DaddyClb

    Scott (Engel) Walker's voice is PURE MAGIC!!!!!!!!!

  53. tekis0

    This IS music!!

  54. littleiceage

    Whoever said that nothing's perfect had never heard a Scott Walker recording.

  55. Lenah J

    Guess I'm hopelessly romantic..... *sighing*...

  56. guidofski

    He still makes records, but his sound is VERY different nowadays...

  57. Anuchid Alex Nanthakowa

    I wonder where is he 's doing now?
