  • You're my world, you're every breath I take
    You're my world, every move I make
    Other eyes see the stars up in the skies
    But for me they shine within your eyes

    As the trees reach for the sun above
    So my arms reach out to you for love
    With your hand resting in mine
    I feel a power so divine

    You're my world, you are my night and day
    You're my world, you're every prayer I pray
    If our love ceases to be
    Then it's the end of my world for me

    With your hand resting in mine
    I feel a power so divine
    You're my world, you are my night and day
    You're my world, you're every prayer I pray

    If our love ceases to be
    Then it's the end of my world
    End of my world
    End of my world for me Writer/s: CARL SIGMAN, GINO PAOLI, UMBERTO BINDI

  • Rob from ColoradoThis song is my praise to God! He is worthy of the lyrics and has become such a love to me by his grace.
  • Gary from Lindenwold, NjFor years I thought Helen Reddy's (1977) version was the original.

    It was only a few months ago when I heard this version on a Music 60s TV Channel, Not seeing the screen, I thought, "Wait a minute. What's Helen Reddy doing on a 60s channel?!"

    I ran to look at the screen to find "Cilla Black / You're My World / 1964". Oh! So Helen Reddy wasn't the first to record it! Well, as I like Helen Reddy, maybe I'd better check out this Cilla Black."

    So, I purchased "The Very Best of Cilla Black" from the iTunes Store and I love it.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn June 28th 1964, "You're My World" by Cilla Black entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #80; and on July 26th, 1977 it peaked at #26 (for 2 weeks) and spent 7 weeks on the Top 100...
    And on May 30th, 1964 it reached #1 (for 3 weeks) on the United Kingdom's Singles chart
    She had only two more records make the Top 100 chart; "It's For You" (peaked at #79 in 1964) and "Alfie" (reached #95 in 1966)...
    But between 1963 and 1993 she had twenty-one records enter the United Kingdom's Singles chart; ten made the Top 10 with two reaching #1, her other #1 was "Anyone Who Had a Heart" in 1964...
    She just missed having her third #1 when her covered version of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" peaked at #2 in 1965...
    Ms. Black, born Priscilla Maria Veronica White, celebrated her 71st birthday one month ago on May 27th, 2014.
  • Jill from Seattle, WaI'm confused. For years, I thought that Glen Campbell had written the English lyrics to "You're My Word." Some websites (ref. Wikipedia, e.g.). however, indicate that the English lyrics were written by Carl Sigman. Who REALLY wrote them?
  • Mrcleaveland from Cleveland,She had another single around the same time called "It's For You." Terrific song for its time.
  • Sheldon from Monroe Twp., NjThis is a powerful emotional and deeply moving song especially appealing being sung by the very talented young Cilla Black who also has the distinction of being from Liverpool and managed like The Beatles by Brian Epstein. For me it is an expression of my undying love for my beloved THEA who passed away and is always in my heart
  • Mary S. Twist from Succasunna, NjA wonderful singer is Cilla Black and an incredible song is "You're My World". This song with its deep adulations to the other person with "You're my world, you are my life, you're every step I make, you're every breath I take" would truly be a fitting matrimonial theme. It sincerely is one of my all-time favourites.
  • Williamson Henderson from Manhattan, Ny"You're My World" is one of those pop torch songs that resounds eternal, particularly as performed by the young and emotional Cilla Black (nee White) who seems to virtually come of age during the transformation of the song story and her impressive voice change from pop and mellow to deeper and bombastic. A big hit song on both sides of the Atlantic (#1 in the U.K.), "World" was a perennial favourite at the also dramatic and likewise enduring "Stonewall Club" in New York City.
  • Joshua from La Crosse, WiGuitar soloist Joe Satriani recorded an entirely different, instrumental song with this same title in 1995.
