What Am I Living For
Mickey Gilley Lyrics


What am I living for, if not for you,
What am I longing for, if not for you,
What am I living for, if not for you,
Baby, nobody else, nobody else will do.

I want you close to me, that's all I know,
I want you all the time,
Darling, I love you so.

What am I longing for, each lonely night,
To feel your lips close to mine, and hold you tight
You'll be the my only girl, my whole life through,
Baby, nobody else, nobody else will do.

What am I longing for, each lonely night,
To feel your lips and mine, and hold you tight
You'll be my only girl, my whole life through,
Baby, nobody else, nobody else will do.

Baby, nobody else, nobody else will do...

Sing Your Style Studio

You give your hand to me
And then you say, "Hello."
And I can hardly speak,
My heart is beating so.
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well.
Well, you don't know me.
(no you don't know me)
No you don't know the one
Who dreams of you at night;
And longs to kiss your lips
And longs to hold you tight
Oh I'm just a friend.
That's all I've ever been.
Cause you don't know me.
(no you don't know me)
For I never knew the art of making love,
Though my heart aches with love for you.
Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by.
A chance that you might love me too.
(love me too)
You give your hand to me,
And then you say, "Goodbye."
I watched you walk away,
Beside the lucky guy
Oh, you'll never ever know
The one who loved you so.
Well, you don't know me
(For I never knew the art of making love, )
(Though my heart aches with love for you. )
Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by.
A chance that you might love me too.
(love me too)
Oh, you give your hand to me,
And then you say, "Goodbye."
I watched you walk away,
Beside the lucky guy
Oh, you'll never ever know
The one who loved you so.
Well, you don't know me
(you don't love me, you don't know me)

Mickey is one of the most under appreciated artist of our lifetime. His music is timeless!!

Elliot Hagen

Very true

Roger Taylor

One of the best releases of this song! He is one of the best!

Ricky Pollock

I remember my first Walkman back in the early 80's, I was airbrushing in a mall in Alabama. I rushed down to the music store and my bought a Mickey Gilley cassette  tape and put it in the Walkman and this was the first time I heard this song. Loved it then and still love it now after all these years!

Jesse Hernandez

U are exactly right, and there is no greater Elvis fan than I...a former Memphian

Jeff Cox

This might sound like bs, but back around 81 and 82, when I was 16 I was a dj at a small country radio station in sand springs okla. Mickey was big then, and with my love of love songs I enjoyed many of his hits that came out over those yrs. I still know all the words to all my faves, and they take me back to when Id sing along with them while working on the air.

Tom Tee

Yep I think this is the best version but I also love Willie's version as well as Ray's...... I have all three in my collection...... And I still to this very moment have a Walkman in my top pocket.

Larry Glass
