If All Else Fails

From The Story of Bea and Ben, this is a duet between the two main lovers, Bea and Ben. They finally reunite, professing their love for each other.

If All Else Fails

Bea:
If all else fails around me,
If hope despairs, and world affairs surround me,
Would it matter at all?

Ben:
If all else fails with you beside me,
If war draws near what shall I fear with you to guide me?
Would it matter at all?

Bea:
If all else fails in the darkest hour,
Could we meet some how?

Ben:
And all the things that have gone unsaid,
And even after the time has fled,

Both:
All we have is now.

If all else fails with you beside me,
If war draws near what shall I fear with you to guide me?

If what we had when we last kissed,
And all we knew was lost or missed?

Ben:
When all else fails without a sound,

Bea:
When you saw me

Both:
I was found.
