Elvis gravou Life nos estúdios da RCA, em Nashville, em 6 de Junho de 1970. O lançamento em single teve uma permanência de sete semanas na tabela Hot 100 da Billboard, chegando ao 53º lugar. Saiu-se muito melhor na tabela Easy-Listening, conseguindo chegar ao 8º lugar. Na tabela country, Life chegou ao 34º lugar. Marty Robbins gravou Life (MCA 40342) em 1975, mas não entrou para as tabelas. A canção foi escrita por Shirl Milete.



Somewhere out in the empty space,
Long before the human race,
Something stirred,
A vast and timeless source began,
Intelligence was born and then,
There was the world,
Powers filled the universe,
Matter formed and broke the curse,
Of nothingness,
Love became an ageless soul,
Nature reached her highest goal,
And breathed the breath of life,
Everlasting life.

Well, creatures come from out of sight,
Day light came from in the night,
And all was good,
Life became a master plan,
Love produced the perfect man,
That understood,
The image of the makers word,
Worshipped him with all he had,
But then one day,
From in the depths an evil seed,
Grew and manufactured greed,
That changed the way of life,
Everlasting life.

Oh, the loving power looked and saw,
Inside the heart of man a flaw,
Began to grow,
Well, the fires of hell began to burn,
And so He sent His chosen son,
To let us know,
That love had surely made us all,
And hate would surely make us fall,
So from the cross,
Well, He showed the world that dreadful day,
That love could be the only way,
Or all is lost of life,
Everlasting life.
For life is love,
And love is life.
