The Wonder Of You
Elvis Presley Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

When no-one else can understand me
When everything I do is wrong
You give me hope and consolation
You give me strength to carry on

And you're always there to lend a hand
In everything I do
That's the wonder
The wonder of you

(The wonder of you)

And when you smile the world is brighter
You touch my hand and I'm a king
Your kiss to me is worth a fortune
Your love for me is everything

I guess I'll never know the reason why
You love me as you do
That's the wonder
The wonder of you

I guess I'll never know the reason why
You love me as you do




That's the wonder
The wonder of you

What a great song. It’s been stuck in my head all week, along with this massive metal pole that randomly flew at me.

@saumyatyagi6763

Nice one dude

@johnnickfanaccount3492

Are you good

@LordGreninjack

@JOHN & NICK FAN ACCOUNT Nope. I had to go to hospital to remove the metal pole. I luckily survived, but the SECOND I stepped outside, I got hit by an ambulance. Then a piano fell from the sky and crushed my legs. Should’ve never followed that funny old man with the walking stick.
