"Bigger Than Elvis" as written by Peter F. Wolf, Jason Randolph Scheff and Ina Wolf....
Come, let's talk just you and me
For once just let me be.
The little boy you used to know.
Relive that summer's bliss.
Cause they came no more like this.
Those were the days,
The days when love was still in style.

[Chorus]
All I ever dreamed I'd be
Is what you are to me.
Bigger than Elvis.
And for all the missing years,
A memory reappears.
Bigger than Elvis.

I saw you on TV.
The king, you were to me.
Could you feel me watching you?
At times my heart got mad,
Only heroes are allowed
To run free, that they could come back inside of me.

[Chorus]

We know the sadness of goodbyes
Must be the one that's bringing tears to your child's eyes.

Oh, from now on I'll walk with you
Making music like you do.
Would you believe I always knew?

You were never hard to take
In some mysterious way
Bigger than Elvis
And for all the missing years
Your memory reappears
Bigger than Elvis.

Now I've found the missing years,
Forgotten all my tears.
I've found the missing years.

    General CommentCorrect. The bass is Scheff's father, who played the track with muted lyrics, having no idea what the song was about. That Christmas, Scheff played the whole song for him.

    It's a truely beautiful song about the most important person in the world to you playing beside the man everyone else considers the king, and about how hard it was to say goodbye to him everytime he went out on tour, but being able to watch him on TV, and being so proud of him.

    General CommentThis song is about Jason Scheff's father. He toured with Elvis or was part of Elvis's band (something like that). Jason is saying that he thought his dad was bigger than Elvis, because he was his dad.

    General CommentThat's right. Jerry Scheff played bass in Elvis' band from the late 60s and thru the 70s.
