    Dedicate it to Elvis.

    If you could dedicate one song to Elvis, either your own, or someone else's...what would it be ?? (You can't choose an Elvis song...I'm evil )

    Mine Would Be :

    There's a hero If you look inside your heart You don't have to be afraid Of what you are There's an answer If you reach into your soul And the sorrow that you know Will melt away

    And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you

    It's a long road When you face the world alone No one reaches out a hand For you to hold You can find love If you search within yourself And the emptiness you felt Will disappear

    And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you

    Lord knows Dreams are hard to follow But don't let anyone Tear them away Hold on There will be tomorrow In time You'll find the way

    And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you


    Because He's My Hero.

    Happy Posting

    ooo toughie! ok well it'd have to be "goodbye to you" by Michelle Branch (great song)

    the lyrics don't really fit with Elvis, but the chorus pretty much sums it up for me :

    Of all the things I believe in
    I just want to get it over with
    tears from behind my eyes
    but I do not cry
    Counting the days that pass me by

    Goodbye to you
    Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
    You were the one I loved
    The one thing that I tried to hold on to

    I still get lost in your eyes
    And it seems like I can't live a day without you
    Closing my eyes till you chase my thoughts away
    To a place where I am blinded by the light but it's not right

    Goodbye to you
    Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
    You were the one I loved
    The one thing that I tried to hold on to

    Goodbye to you
    Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
    You were the one I loved
    The one thing that I tried to hold on to
    The one thing that I tried to hold on to

    Goodbye to you
    Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
    You were the one I loved
    The one thing that I tried to hold on to

    When the stars fall and I lie awake
    You're my shooting star
    I've got those hup, two, three, four, occupation G.I. Blues, From my G.I. hair to the heels of my G.I. shoes

    The first song that came into my head was

    Faith Hill's "There You'll Be"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpaBQPspLXg

    When I think back on these times
    and the dreams we left behind
    I'll be glad
    'coz I was blessed
    to get to have you in my life
    when I look back on these days
    I'll look and see your face
    you were right there for me

    In my dreams I'll always see you soar above the sky
    in my heart there'll always be a place for you, for all my life
    I'll keep a part of you with me
    and everywhere I am there you'll be
    Everywhere I am there you'll be

    Well you showed me how it feels
    to feel the sky within my reach
    and I always will remember
    all the strength you gave to me
    your love made me make it through
    Oh, I owe so much to you
    you were right there for me

    In my dreams I'll always see you soar above the sky
    in my heart there'll always be a place for you, for all my life
    I'll keep a part of you with me
    and everywhere I am there you'll be

    Coz I always saw in you my light, my strength
    And I wanna thank you now for all the ways
    you were right there for me
    you were right there for me always

    In my dreams I'll always see you soar above the sky
    in my heart there'll always be a place for you, for all my life
    I'll keep a part of you with me
    and everywhere I am there you'll be
    and everywhere I am there you'll be

    ELVIS WILL ALWAYS BE "THE KING"

    Celine Dion - Because You Loved Me
    It doesn't fit in everything but oh well....
    I made a video with the song too
    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=tG3PZsTKvHY

    For all those times you stood by me
    For all the truth that you made me see
    For all the joy you brought to my life
    For all the wrong that you made right
    For every dream you made come true
    For all the love I found in you
    I'll be forever thankful baby
    You're the one who held me up
    Never let me fall
    You're the one who saw me through through it all


    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn't speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn't see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
    You gave me faith 'coz you believed
    I'm everything I am
    Because you loved me


    You gave me wings and made me fly
    You touched my hand I could touch the sky
    I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
    You said no star was out of reach
    You stood by me and I stood tall
    I had your love I had it all
    I'm grateful for each day you gave me
    Maybe I don't know that much
    But I know this much is true
    I was blessed because I was loved by you


    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn't speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn't see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
    You gave me faith 'coz you believed
    I'm everything I am
    Because you loved me


    You were always there for me
    The tender wind that carried me
    A light in the dark shining your love into my life
    You've been my inspiration
    Through the lies you were the truth
    My world is a better place because of you


    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn't speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn't see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
    You gave me faith 'coz you believed
    I'm everything I am
    Because you loved me


    I'm everything I am
    Because you loved me

    Wow, some really nice posts...There are some songs that I usually wouldn't like, but when I read the lyrics while thinking about Elvis, it's very different.

    Hmm, not an Elvis song? This means you suppose that I sometimes listen to something else than Elvis??
    Ok, I'll post something very different of what the previous people did, all the previous songs were dedicated to the terrible feeling of loosing him, or to what he brought to us... Mine would be I'm a rocker, a Bruce Springsteen song, and to me it has that same feeling than when I see Elvis doing his rock thing. Like, he can't be stopped, he is alive only to dance and sing some rock...

    I got a 007 watch and it's a one and only
    It's got a I-Spy beeper that tells me when you're lonely
    I got a Batmobile so I can reach ya' in a fast shake
    When your world's in crisis of an impendin' heartbreak

    Now don't you call James Bond or Secret Agent Man
    Cause they can't do it, like I can
    I'm a rocker, baby, I'm a rocker - every day
    I'm a rocker, baby, I'm a rocker

    If you're hanging from a cliff or you're tied to the tracks, girl
    Columbo split and you can't find Kojak
    True love is broken and your tears are fallin' faster
    You're sufferin' from a pain in your heart or some other natural disaster

    Now I don't care what kind of shape you're in
    If they put up a roadblock, I'll parachute in
    I'm a rocker, baby, I'm a rocker - I'm in love
    I'm a rocker, baby, I'm a rocker - every day
    I'm a rocker, baby, I'm a rocker - with you

    So you fell for some jerk who was tall, dark and handsome
    Then he kidnapped your heart and now he's holdin' it for ransom
    Well, like a mission impossible I'm gonna go and get it back
    You know I would'a taken better care of it, baby, than that

    Sometimes I get so hot girl, well, I can't talk
    But when I'm with you I cool off , and I walk
    I'm a rocker, baby, I'm a rocker, and I talk
    I'm a rocker, baby, I'm a rocker, every day
    I'm a rocker, baby, I'm a rocker, every day


    Here's some concert footage of Springsteen singing it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLUkJyEEX8k
