Elvis Presley - Starting Today Lyrics




Starting today
I'm teaching my heart
Not to ache anymore
Just 'cause we're apart

No more will I dream
Of your sweet loving ways
Gonna learn to forget you
Starting today

And when memories haunt me
And the tears starts to flow
I'll just think of the sorrow
You caused me to know

No more for the past
To return will I pray
Gonna live for tomorrow
Starting today
Starting today

  21. Apachie

    All the comments about this CD, and about his talent/voice. I could click thumbs up all day. For those who can see his talent love you all. Long live the KING of ROCK. Even at the end some say he lost it. It was his VOICE that was the pearl of his Talent. Those that can't hear that or see it will never understand .

    Laurence O'Connor

    Elvis Presley is dead so he cannot as you put it " long live". 😁

    Apachie

    That's true, but it's his music and his talent . The voice he had at the end of his life. He will alway be the king of Rock n roll. As we know it today.

    Laurence O'Connor

    @Apachie

    Which has nothing to do with his daughter's subpar talent. To follow your line of reasoning then Mozart's descendants, if he had any, should be allowed to alter his work because they're his babies babies babies babies babies..

    Apachie

    @Laurence O'Connor not talking about his daughter . Talking about Elvis talent and how he did change the music that time. Like Elvis said he came along at the right time . When people was looking for something new/ different.

  22. John Morris

    Elvis, we love you tender and we always will !

  23. John Morris

    Chills. This song gives me massive chill bumps !  Thanks Elvis.

  24. John Morris

    Elvis, we love you tender and we always will !

  25. Louis van Niekerk

    Thank you Elvis for your great music you are a legend that will never be forgotten RIP.

  26. kendo bear

    Brilliant

  27. Deano Essex

    🎵🎵🎵 I'm not a huge fan of Rock n Roll, but i do love Elvis's love songs 🎵🎵🎵

  28. James McAleenan

    Still the best

  29. MrLive2win

    So glad his parents named him Elvis. With that voice Bill or Joe would have never worked.

    Laurence O'Connor

    Elvis is the English for Ailbe, which is an Irish name. Now you know what billions of Elvis Presley fans don't know.

    Jon Bryan

    Research shows that Saint Ailbe was born in the 5th century and is honored as one of four great patron saints of Ireland. St Ailbe is usually known in English (British/Welch) as St. Elvis. There is actually a 200-acre Parish in Wales (UK) that is known as St Elvis. There is evidence that Elvis' ancestry is Welsh, English, Scottish, Irish, Dutch, Cherokee & Jewish. Connecting the dots, this may explain how or why is first name was selected by his religious parents.

  30. Susan Miller

    His voice is the best that ever will be his life complicated and sad not only for him but his family . He was swept up in fame and all that goes with it . People say that Anne Margaret was his greatest love but I think it was Pricilla and my heart goes out to her for all the stories that she had to endure this was her one true love she came and uprooted for him she had his child and he pushed her away . I think Elvis realized this but it was to late the damage was done . So very sad when it could have been so different

  31. Agenor G. Oliveira

    This song is the one that best suited the accompaniment of the orchestra ... In this version, Elvis' voice is so wonderfully beautiful, nostalgic, exciting and velvety that, far from being equaled by the voice of any other human being, it seems it sounds directly from the skies ...!

  32. Jane Richards

    My eyes are leaking..omg how beautiful is this ..love you always Elvis

  33. Mark David Black

    I may have missed out on having a loving family and a sweet woman to hold me at night...but at least I have my Elvis records. I am truly blessed.

  34. Steven Watkins

    There is si much more to Elvis,800 songs more!!Try an get passed his looks not easy and just listen to an amazingvoice!Hope more younger people give him a listen,u wont be sorry!!!

  35. kendo bear

    No doubt about it Elvis was simply the best

  36. Alex serolf

  46. 847777

    Close your eyes, imagine your lying on the beach on a warm breeze starry night, all you can hear is the gentle waves and palm trees swaying and coming to and fro. Now, sincerly that's how I would define Elvis's heavenly voice - When he sings those beautiful ballads, it takes me to another place filled with love peace and joy, truely an Angel brought to us from another World.

  47. Joseph Kane

    Just A Real Beautiful Song By Elvis Presley as it is just so magical to listen to even now

  48. Damian Velazquez

    "Los tres tenores somos vocalmente superiores a la mayoría del resto de los artistas, a excepción de Elvis Presley" Jose Carreras.

    I love Elvis more than life,but not a fan of the Orchestra record's, am glad they sell,but for many other artists,I can understand them needing help,but Elvis had the greatest natural singing voice and I find the Orchestra ruins in so many way the songs,so much so when starts I have no clue of song, Elvis Presley is the greatest entertainer of all time so doesn't need his music touch up

  67. Irene Casio

    I'm sure that Elvis himself would have adored these reproductions of his songs. They've done it so honourably, especially as none of them are duets (which I find quite disrespectful).

    CELA FAIT TRÈS TRÈS LONGTEMPS QUE J'ÉCOUTE DU ELVIS ET JE NE M'EN LASSERAI JAMAIS ,IL RESTERA TOUJOURS DANS MON COEUR ET IL RESTERA LE MEILLEUR CHANTEUR DE LA PLANÈTE ET JE CROIT QUE PERSONNE NE LUI ARRIVERA A LA CHEVILLE PEUT IMPORTE LE DOMAINE, CA FAIT 40 ANS QU'IL EST DÉCÉDÉ ET IL ATTEINT ENCORE DES VENTE DE 50.MILLIONS PAR ANNÉE, SALUT LA GANG ,

  86. HeyRingworm2008

    What an absolute "breath of fresh air " for the producers to push some of Elvis Presleys  lesser known songs to the forefront , instead of hiding them !   I oh so wish the radio/tv media would do the same  .....There was so so so much more to Elvis Presley than Jailhouse Rock ,,, Hound Dog , And ..The wonder of you  !!!!!!!  and this song proves it .

  97. Frans Vanhove

    My poem for  a great man.

    Some foolish people compare Elvis to God
    What are they thinking, where is the respect
    Oké, they adore him, they like him a lot
    but this comparison is completely incorrect.

    Sure, he's cool, famous and has a lot of fans
    but I am pretty sure that there's no chance,
    even if He tries and shakes his pelvis
    that He will be able to sing like Elvis.

    Frans Vanhove.
