  • When I was young
    I never knew
    What this thing called love
    Could do to you
    But since you been gone
    And I've been on my own
    I've been feeling quite peculiar
    But I'll get by without your smile
    I'll get through without you

    But I wish it was me you chose
    I wish it was me you chose
    I wish it was me you chose
    I wish it was me you chose
    Cause Elvis ain't dead
    And you're coming back
    And Elvis ain't dead
    And you're coming back
    Oh

    Since you been gone
    I can do what I like
    But it doesn't mean a lot to me
    I'm all shook up
    And I'm lonesome tonight
    I think I need a lot of lobotomy
    But I'll get by without your smile
    I'll get through without you

    But I wish it was me you chose
    I wish it was me you chose
    I wish it was me you chose
    I wish it was me you chose
    Cause Elvis ain't dead
    And you're coming back
    Cause Elvis ain't dead
    And you're coming back
    Oh no, Oh no, Oh no

    You
    Me
    Maybe we we're never meant to be
    [2x]

    Elvis isn't dead
    Elvis isn't dead
    Elvis isn't dead
    Cause I heard him on the radio

    Elvis isn't dead
    Elvis isn't dead
    Elvis isn't dead
    And you're coming back to me I know

    Elvis isn't dead
    Elvis isn't dead
    Elvis isn't dead
    Yes I heard him on the radio

    Elvis isn't dead
    Elvis isn't dead
    Elvis isn't dead

    Me you chose
    I wish it was me you chose
    I wish it was me you chose
    Cause Elvis ain't dead
    And you're coming back
    And Elvis ain't dead
    And you're coming back

    And Elvis ain't dead
    And Elvis ain't dead
    And Elvis ain't dead
    And Elvis ain't dead

    Elvis has left the building
    Thank you and good night Writer/s: ROY STRIDE

  • Daniel from MadridI just heard the song for the 1st time, and I immediately caught the "God only knows" reference, like Ameelia !
  • B from Newcastle, United KingdomAmeelia, I thought that too, or maybe Beach Baby. It does my head in that I cant decide which song.
  • Ameelia from London, United KingdomAbout 2mins in, is it me, or does it sound like they start to sample "God only knows" by the Beach Boys??
  • Ameelia from London, United KingdomI LOVE this song...I thought it was the Feeling or another band, glad I found it!
