As Long As I Have You

download

(Wise & Weisman)

Information:
Fred Wise and Ben Weisman wrote As Long As I Have You for Elvis's 1958 film,
King Creole. Elvis recorded the song at Radio Recorders on January 16, 1958. Two versions were recorded, the one on record and a shorter one that hasn't been officially released, although it has appeared on a few bootlegs. In late 1958 Don Rondo did a cover version of As Long As I Have You (Jubilee 5334) that did not chart.

Lyrics:

Let the stars fade and fall
And I won't care at all
As long as I have you

Every kiss brings a thrill
And I know that it will
As long as I have you

Let's think of the future
Forget the past
You're not my first love
But you're my last

T
ake the love that I bring
Then I'll have everything
As long as I have you

Let's think of the future
Forget the past
You're not my first love
But you're my last
Take the love that I bring
Then I'll have everything
As long as I have you

As long, as long as I have you
