LOVE COMING DOWN
                                                     
(HISTORY)

In my catalog of several hundred songs I've written, this is one of my personal favorites. This is one of those songs that when you're writing it, the melody, and lines of the lyric just seem to fall together like they belong there.

This is usually what occurs when you're working on a gigantic Hit song. I really believe that this song's day will come....

When I found out that Elvis was going to record it, I went to Memphis and attended the session in the Jungle Room of Graceland. I found Elvis quite upset because his dog was very ill.

He did the song, and also "Never Again", another of my songs and then retired for the evening after remarking that I had destroyed him. What he meant, of course, was that the words of these two songs really got to him. He didn't just sing a song, he more or less lived it  as he sang it. He was very conscience of what the song was all about. I hope you like it, and the way Elvis did it. This was in the album titled "ELVIS PRESLEY BOULEVARD" and has been re-released on a new CD titled the "JUNGLE ROOM SESSIONS".

BACK

LOVE COMING DOWN


I remember how your eyes used to light up

Over promises that I made

But for the first time in my life

I know now how it feels to be afraid

I don't know what I'd do if you go away

This would sure be one lonely old town

For a man so busy going up in the world

That he couldn't see love coming down

Love coming down



I remember all the times you told me

Love's all that matters to you

And looking back now, wondering how I believed

I had things more important to do

I can see how I must have looked to you

Like some fool on a merry-go-round

Another man so busy going up in the world

That he couldn't see love coming down

Love coming down



Can't you see how everything I've learned

Would just be wasted if you leave me

If you'll just give me one more try

I swear I'll always be here when you need me

If you can find it in your heart to forgive me

I'll try to keep both my feet on the ground

Forgive a man so busy going up in the world

That he couldn't see love coming down

Love coming down
