The Next Step Is Love

Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Paul Evans / Parnes Elvis Presley Lyrics

Yesterday, I slipped away
The sun is welcoming the evening shadows
On a perfect day and the next step is love
The next step is love

We walked barefoot through the misty meadows
Laughing at each other in the rain
Made some faces at some people in the park
Didn't bother to explain
Fun, fun, look at us run
Going nowhere special really fast
But we've yet to taste the icing on the cake
That we've been baking with the past

And the next step is love
So what are we waiting for?
The next step is love
Girl, it's for sure

Love will be a place to run to
From the world they've built to you and me
We'll be closer than we've ever been
Though looking back it's so hard to believe
Hang it all out or bring it all in
The best we've picked upon the way tonight
Changes are coming but together
We can make it through somehow

Yes the next step is love

Recorded: 1970/06/07, first released on That's The Way It Is

June 4, 1970 - Elvis begins five days of recording at RCA's Studio B in Nashville, reporting each evening at 6.00pm and working until the dawn hours. The decision to follow up the magnificent sessions in Memphis by going back to RCA's Nashville studio and hiring Nashville musicians, must have puzzled quite a few people at the time. However, as Chip Moman's Memphis studio had folded, both RCA and Felton Jarvis must have been pleased to see the situation return to what it had been before - RCA because of administrative differences with Chip Moman, and Jarvis because he would once more be in total control again. Felton Jarvis had quit RCA in the beginning of 1970, and from the June sessions onwards would work for Elvis exclusively, both in the recording studios and with live recordings. ln this capacity Jarvis supervised all the arrangements such as booking studios, hiring musicians, and staying in touch with the various publishing companies and RCA

July, After the marathon session, 35 masters in 5 days, in Nashville, Elvis enjoyed himself until he had to go west for the upcoming Las Vegas engagement. On June 22 he bought three snow mobiles, which were able to drive the Graceland grass. He went to Nashville, maybe to review and repair some recordings, he stayed in Dallas for a couple of days and flew back to Memphis as 'John Carpenter', together with Richard Davis and Charlie Hodge. Until he went to California he saw screenings in the Memphian every night.
