  • Collecting dust inside that liquor store 'till you bought it for me
    A decanter full of whiskey in the image of the King
    The more I drank from it the less I saw of you
    That bottle's empty now and you and I are through
    When you gave me the King of gifts I didn't know what to say
    Except a hundred and fifty dollars in an awful lot to pay
    For a girl like you who doesn't make much money, anyway
    But you cared enough to put away a little everyday
    For that Elvis decanter, the one you gave to me
    A fitting symbol of our love, and empty likeness of the King
    If I had made it last or filled it up would it have changed a thing?
    It's just an Elvis decanter, the one you gave to me
    They told me I should save it, it'd be worth something
    Someday
    But me I couldn't wait and the King of Rock got lighter everyday
    Soon it was half empty and I was half as close to you
    Then I drank the rest, and should've guessed I drank our love in two
    Elvis decanter, the one you gave to me
    In the name of Elvis, why did you have to leave?
    When I love you and I need you desperately tonite
