221 – Elvis Presley – Suspicion (1962)


Escrita pela dupla de compositores de sucesso Doc Pomus e Mort Shuman. No total, essa dupla escreveria vinte e cinco canções pra Elvis Presley. 
 
Suspicion foi lançada no LP Pot Luck with Elvis, de 1962. A canção se tornou um hit em 1964, ajudada pela versão de Terry Stafford, que chegaria ao número 3 dos charts pop americanos e 31 no charts britanicos. A versao de Elvis só se tornaria um hit no Reino Unido em 1976, chegando ao número 9 dos charts britanicos. 

A letra:

Every time you kiss me I’m still not certain that you love me,
Every time you hold me I’m still not certain that you care
Though you keep on saying you really, really, really love me
Do you speak the same words to someone else when I’m not there.

Suspicion torments my heart,
Suspicion keeps us apart,
Suspicion why torture me.

Every time you call me and tell me we should meet tomorrow
I can’t help but think that you’re meeting someone else tonight,
Why should our romance just keep on causing me such sorrow?
Why am I so doubtful whenever you’re out of sight?

Suspicion torments my heart,
Suspicion keeps us apart,
Suspicion why torture me.

Darling, if you love me, I beg you wait a little longer,
Wait until I drive all these foolish fears out of my mind,
How I hope and pray that our love will keep on growing stronger,
Maybe I’m suspicious ‘cause true love is so hard to find.

Suspicion torments my heart,
Suspicion keeps us apart,
Suspicion why torture me.
