Let's Forget About the Stars

download

(Owens)

 

Information:
Al Owens wrote Let’s Forget About the Stars for the film Charro!, but it was not used. The instrumental track for the song was recorded on October 15, 1968, at the Samuel Goldwyn Studios. Former Mouseketeer Carl (Cubby) O’Brien played drums on that session. Elvis’s vocal was probably added at a later date.

 

Lyrics:
 

If you let the stars keep telling you who to love and not to love
You may never find contentment for your heart
You could go unloved forever and, darling, that means never
Surrender, love, let's forget about the stars

You say the stars have promised you true love ten thousand times
But here you are with a broken heart and mind
I can tell you want to love me from the beating in your heart
Surrender, love, let's forget about the stars

Let's forget about the stars, come follow me, my love
To a world just like the world that you've been dreaming of
Let's not wait too long for something might go wrong
Surrender, love, let's forget about the stars
Let's forget about the stars
Let's forget about the stars
Let's forget about the stars
