At Last Lyrics

At Last <yoastmark class=

Picture a voice that’s more than just sound – it’s a blend of velvet and grit, a voice that’s journeyed through heartache and shines with soul. Now, imagine this voice crafting a melody that paints a canvas of both longing and euphoria. That, my friends, is the enchantment of Etta James‘ “At Last.”

At Last Lyrics

[Verse 1]
At last
My love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song
Oh, yeah, yeah

[Verse 2]
At last
The skies above are blue
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 can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I’ve never known, oh, yeah, yeah

[Verse 3]
You smiled, you smiled
Oh, and then the spell was cast
And here we are in Heaven
For you are mine at last

Additional, details;

  • Released in 1960, “At Last” wasn’t just a song; it was an eruption. James, a blues powerhouse with a penchant for R&B swagger, took this ballad and made it her own. Her vocal inflections danced on the melody, each note a whispered promise, a sigh of sweet relief. The lyrics, yearning for a love that’s finally arrived, resonated with a universality that transcended time and genre.
  • This wasn’t James’ first rodeo. She’d tasted success with fiery numbers like “I Just Want to Make Love to You,” but “At Last” unveiled a different side – vulnerable, hopeful, achingly beautiful. It was a love song cradled in moonlight, a whispered serenade to a love long awaited.
