Words & Music: Fred Wise/ Ben Wiseman
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
Take 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
Recorded: 1958/01/16, first released on EP

Great ballad from a great soundtrack and movie. If Elvis was known for one era in rock 'n roll, it certainly was the 1950's and this "puppy" was part of the end of that era; next would come the 1960's and pure pop. This song is Elvis the ballad singer; one of the better tracks from "King Creole".

I always think this is the 1958 version of Can't Help Falling In Love, very appealing and yes a true classic.The voice was now showing absolute command over this type of ballad which would manifest itself completely in 1960 -yes 5 stars.

A very nice ballad along with the rest of the album. Truly the greatest soundtrack by Elvis, ever!

One of his weaker fifties ballads. The ballads brought the level of the soundtrack down.

This is such a beautiful song and it's from my favorite Elvis album and movie "King Creole".

Great ballad from a great movie. I like all the songs (except Steadfast) and the album contains at least 3 bona fide classics (the title song, HH Woman, & Trouble). This LP was so good it could have ranked among his best studio LPs. It had all the elements, Rock, Pop, Blues, Ballads. Never again would a movie soundtrack be as good.

Beautiful in it's simplicity, a good job by The King on his one.

Great song, great singing, great movie, Elvis' career was firing on all 8 cylinders during this time. An absolute classic.

Excellent movie ballad from the film "King Creole". I really enjoy the entire soundtrack LP (minus "Crawfish") and this is one of Elvis' best movie ballads along with "Don't Ask Me Why" from the same movie. 4 1/2 stars.

Why couldn't all of Elvis' film songs be of this standard? A superb 1950s ballad from the excellent King Creole movie. Where Elvis is seen on the stage of a smokey night club strumming his guitar and singing this tender song. He even tries a bit of Dino during the last line of the song. A very memorable song.

Lovely song, well sung and from the fifties. What more is there to be said!

Good fill in Lp song. Would never have made a good 'single' when compared with Jailhouse Rock / Hard Headed Woman / One Night / Wear My Ring Around You're Neck / A Fool Such As I etc.

I love this song. A simple beautiful ballad sung perfectly. Great moment in the movie as well.

So soppy but one of my favourite Elvis tunes! I love to sing along to this one!
