Lying by your side, I watch you sleeping
And in your face the sweetness of a child
Murmuring the dreams you won't recapture
Though it will haunt the corners of you mind

Who can tell when summer turns to autumn
And who can point the moment love grows cold?
Softly happening the joy is over
Though why it's gone neither of us know

Oh, I've lost you, yes, I've lost you
I can't reach you anymore
We ought to talk it over now
But reason can't stand in for feeling

Six o'clock the baby will be crying
And you will stumble, sleepy, to the door
In the chill and sun gray of the morning
We play the parts that we have learned to well

    General CommentOne of my all time fav Elvis songs to listen to. And now I have the same thing. Of course my girl broke it off.

    But I felt the same way this song is prior to the break off. Meaning of this song: The feelings between each other have changed some how. And he knows it and he realizes that they are "emotional" separating from each other, it's not the same as it was before. And you always know that you should "talk it over" but can't always talk about it, it sometimes makes it worse.

    General CommentMan, Elvis sings this song so well. He really sounds desperate in it. Makes you believe it. What an amazing man, and I wish everyone believed the hype. Even in his later days, he was amazing. This song, of course, is about a break up. Interesting to see Elvis tackle sadder human themes in his latter days. In the Ghetto, of course, is the prime example. But check out others like Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues. I guess it comes with being older and more mature.
