You Don't Have to Say You Love Me

download

(Wickham / Napier-Bell / Donaggio / Pallavicini)

Informação:

Servindo-se do título Io Che Non Vivo (Senza Te), V. Pallavicini e P. Donaggio escreveram You Don't Have to Say You Love Me para o concurso de canções de San Remo (Itália) em 1965. Posteriormente as letras em inglês seriam escritas por Vicki Wickham e Simon Napier-Bell. Em 1966 Dusty Springfield alcançou o 4º lugar na tabela Hot 100 da Billboard e vendeu um milhão de exemplares com a sua gravação da canção (Phillips 40371). Dois anos depois, os Four Sonics tiveram uma versão moderadamente bem sucedida (Sport 110) que alcançou o 89º lugar na tabela.

 

Elvis gravou You Don't Have to Say You Love Me em 6 de junho de 1970 nos estúdios da RCA em Nashville. A breve introdução de piano foi eliminada do lançamento em single da RCA. Elvis pode ser visto a ensair a canção na MGM, em preparação para a sua eminente temporada em Las Vegas no documentário de 1970, Elvis - That's The Way It Is. Também se podem ver ensaios no International Hotel.

 

You Don't Have to Say You Love Me passou 10 semanas na tabela Hot 100 da Billboard, chegando ao 11º lugar. Substituiu We've Only Just Begun dos Carpenters no primeiro lugar da tabela Easy-Listening e foi depois substituída, apenas uma semana depois, por It's Impossible, de Perry Como. You Don't Have to Say You Love me esteve na tabela Easy-Listening durante 11 semanas. Alcançou a 56ª posição na tabela country. Vendas de um milhão de exemplares foram facilmente alcançadas.


Letra:

When I said I needed you

You said you would always stay
It wasn't me who changed, but you
And know you've gone away

Don't you know that now you're gone
And I'm left here on my own
Now I have to follow you
And beg you to come home

You don't have to say you love me, just be close at hand
You don't have to stay forever, I will understand
Believe me, believe me, I can't help but love you
But believe me, I'll never tie you down

Left alone with just a memory
Life seems dead and so unreal
All that's left is loneliness
There's nothing left to feel
 

You don't have to say you love me, just be close at hand
You don't have to stay forever, I will understand
Believe me, oh believe me

You don't have to say you love me, just be close at hand
You don't have to stay forever, I will understand
Believe me, believe me, believe me
