Oh my baby baby I love you more than I can tell
I don't think I can live without you
And I know that I never will
Oh my baby baby I want you so it scares me to death
I can't say anymore than I love you
Everything else is a waste of breath
In this intro Elvis sings about the time when he was in a happy relationship with a girl he was desperately in love with. He “knows” that their relationship will never end, that’s how sure he is in their love.
The rest of the song is in present time, after she cheated on him.
