Elvis Presley Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Honey, I love you too much
I need your lovin' too much
Want the thrill of your touch
Gee, I can't hold you too much
You do all the livin'
While I do all the givin'
'cause I love you too much
You spend all my money too much
Have to share you honey, too much
When I want some lovin', you're gone
Don't you know you're treatin' me wrong
Now you got me started
Don't you leave me broken hearted
'cause I love you too much

I need your lovin' all the time
Need you huggin', please be mine
Need you near me, stay real close
Please, please, hear me, you're the most
Now you got me started
Don't you leave me broken hearted
'cause I love you too much

Every time I kiss your sweet lips
I can feel my heart go flip flip
I'm such a fool for your charms
Take me back baby, in your arms
Like to hear you sighin'
Even though I know you're lyin'
'cause I love you too much

I need your lovin' all the time
Need you huggin', please be mine
Need you near me, stay real close
Please, please, hear me, you're the most
Now you got me started



Don't you leave me broken hearted
'cause I love you too much

The older I get the more I realize how amazing Elvis was. I can see why the Beatles idolized him.

Karl_3

somewhere i read or heard, when Elvis passed on in 77, Bob Dylan wouldn't speak a word for weeks.

Daniel Castillo

They did in Elvis' early career. Buddy Holly was their main fluence though. Elvis was just the first artist that sparked their interest in Rock 'n' Roll.

James Edward Warde III

The Beatles? Hell, the whole world idolized him. In every nation today they still have Elvis impersonators. But the Beatles. Yeah that's pretty cool too

Rafael Alvitres

@Daniel Castillo Even Buddy Holly idolized Elvis.

Roger Martin

Greatest cultural icon of the 20th CENTURY

As a metalhead I can't help but appreciate how innovative this song was for rock n roll. Intentional or not that guitar solo was years ahead of its time.
