The Italian Song Copied by British Lyrics Video

io che non vivo senza te
Elvis Presley
Even Elvis sang "Io che non vivo senza Te", but "You Do not Have To Say You Love Me" is an Italian romantic song.



Presented at the Sanremo Music Festival on 1965, by Pino Donaggio and was copied by British singer Dusty Springfield, later, also "the King" made ​​a version, and is one of the most beautiful and famous Italian songs.

Too bad, that even on Wikipedia, this song is attributed to Springfield, does not give right honor to the two authors: Donaggio and Vito Pallavicini.

Below, the video with the restored original version of the song, presented at the Festival of Sanremo, and beautiful version of Elvis Presley:
A curiosity: when you see the first video of 1965, the orchestra director, is Giampiero Reverberi, the founder and director of the famous band Rondo Veneziano:


Lyrics in English version of Elvis/Spriengfield:

  • When I said I needed you
  • You said you would always stay
  • It wasn't me who changed but you
  • And now you've gone away

  • Don't you see
  • That now you've gone
  • And I'm left here on my own
  • That I have to follow you
  • And beg you to come home?

  • You don't have to say you love me
  • Just be close at hand
  • You don't have to stay forever
  • I will understand
  • Believe me, believe me
  • I can't help but love you
  • But believe me
  • I'll never tie you down

  • Left alone with just a memory
  • Life seems dead and so unreal
  • All that's left is loneliness
  • There's nothing left to feel

  • You don't have to say you love me
  • Just be close at hand
  • You don't have to stay forever
  • I will understand
  • Believe me, believe me

  • You don't have to say you love me
  • Just be close at hand
  • You don't have to stay forever
  • I will understand
  • Believe me, believe me, believe me


Lyrics Io che non vivo senza te by Pallavicini/Donaggio:

  • Siamo qui noi soli 
  • come ogni sera 
  • ma tu sei piu' triste ed io lo so perche' 
  • Forse tu vuoi dirmi 
  • che non sei felice 
  • che io sto cambiando e tu mi vuoi lasciar... 

  • Io che non vivo piu' di un'ora senza te 
  • come posso stare una vita senza te? 
  • Sei mia, sei mia, mai niente, lo sai 
  • separarci un giorno potra' 

  • Vieni qui, ascoltami 
  • io ti voglio bene... 
  • Te ne prego, fermati ancora insieme a me 

  • Io che non vivo piu' di un'ora senza te 
  • come posso stare una vita senza te? 
  • Sei mia, sei mia, mai niente, lo sai, 
  • separarci un giorno potra'
