As Long As I Have You (1:53)
-------------------------------------
# King Creole Soundtrack (1958)
# Written by Fred Wise & Ben Weisman

Let the stars fade and fall
And I won't care at all
As long as I have you

Every kiss brings a thrill
And I know that it will
As long as I have you

Let's think of the future
Forget the past
You're not my first love
But you're my last

Take the love that I bring
Then I'll have everything
As long as I have you

Let's think of the future
Forget the past
You're not my first love
But you're my last

Take the love that I bring
Then I'll have everything
As long as I have you

As long, as long as I have you

Recorded: 1958/01/16, first released on EP
