As Long as I Have You

Rating:
4.4 / 5

Words & Music: Ben Weisman Fred Wise

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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".

Not played it for ages and gave it a spin today on the original Mono album I bought in 1959, sometime after it's original release! The sound was pure crisp and I got the impression that Elvis enjoyed singing it too, which is more than I can say for the later movie sub standard efforts. Good film and soundtrack also.

I love the soundtrack, but the ballads aren't on the same level as the up tempo songs. This is enjoyable in the context of the lp, but i never listen to it as a standalone. It's a good filler and gets 3 stars from me.
