I give, give you my heart
Today, tomorrow and forever
You'll always be my love

I vow we'll never part
Today, tomorrow and forever
Long as there's stars above

The cares of life will fade away
As long as we're together
So stay, stay in my arms
Today, tomorrow and forever
You'll always be my love

I give, give you my heart
Today, tomorrow and forever
You'll always be my love

The cares of life will fade away
As long as we're together
So stay, stay in my arms
Today, tomorrow and forever
You'll always be my love
You'll always be my love

Another pretty ballad sung beautifully by Elvis in his romantic side.

Quite under-rated... 5 stars !...different chords compared to those we were used to.

It's a pity The Jordonaires ruin the ending of an otherwise beautiful, heartfelt rendition of this classical melody (Franz Liszt's Liebestraum).

A very good recording, much better than a few others around in '63 & '64, and made for a movie, yea, way above average.

An above average movie ballad from the 1964 film "Viva Las Vegas". While not a song I play a lot, it is always pleasant to listen to. Elvis modulates well between the soft verses and the more demanding chorus and is in top vocal form from start to finish. Not quite as good as "Can't Help Falling In Love" from "Blue Hawaii", but close. More along the lines of "As Long As I Have You" from "King Creole" and "Home Is Where The Heart Is" from "Kid Galahad". A very solid 4 star song.

Lovely ballad. Beautifully sung.

Nice ballad from a good soundtrack. The duet with A-M however did not work at all for me. Ruined the song.

Heard the song the first time, when I was 11. My Mom bought me my first own Elvis album the LP 'Today, Tomorrow and Forever' as a reward for having removed my tonsils. Nice lp with lots of movie songs - and a pleasant way recovering listening to songs like Viva Las Vegas, Angel, King of the whole wide World a.s.o. Normally I at that age preferred Elvis singing rock songs, but the title song as well as Angel got me hooked on the more tender songs as well. So after all a nice trade: Tonsils out ....Elvis in!

It's good, but fairly typical movie ballad. The ballads in the movies always fair better than the attempts at rock and the ridiculous novelty-type songs (about Yoga or Papayas...). But like "All That I Am" or "Am I Ready" or "Please Don't Stop Loving Me", this is good, but generic; and Elvis' sincerity in the vocal of every love song he sang elevates it immensely.

Good song but do not like the arrangement. Just Elvis and the piano or a more simple backing (no Jords perhaps) and it could have been a much better record.

This is a very lovely song that is delivered with sincerity. Also like the duet version with Ann Margret very much, they were so deep in love! Four stars from me.

This is such a beautiful ballad and it's easily one of the very best Elvis movie songs from the 1960's. I also love the duet version with Ann-Margret very much too. Five stars from me.

The solo version oozes class but I got more into the song as a duet, probably because it was something new as far as Elvis performances were concerned. This is despite the fact that the pronunciation of 'Forever' by AM leaves something to be desired ;-) - 4 stars.

I prefer the solo version of this beautiful ballad.
Natha wrote on December 06, 2014
Outstanding performance. What a voice! Indeed, the solo version is by far the best. AM's performance is of course weak. She is just mediocre, like most singers. So she is not contributing to Elvis' performance, on the contrary. Luckily we have the solo version. I always love to hear his voice so up front. A joy and thrill to hear.

I love this song but like another person on here the Jordanaires I thought should not have been on this one. Maybe, they could be lifted off the song with just Elvis and the piano for a new version.

Already a little bit old fashioned for its time, but a nice, intimate ballad, well delivered by our man. I like it. The duet version, while nice to have, lacks the intimacy of the solo version, not to convincing in my old ears. Four stars for the solo version.

Not a bad tune. I don't go out of my way to listen to it though. 3-stars.
