About Not One Minute More

"Not One Minute More" is a 1959 song and single by singer and actress Della Reese. The song became her third big hit and million-seller, and peaked at number #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and #12 on the US Billboard R&B chart. Reese continued recording albums, but her singing career took a backseat to her acting and television appearances. "Not One Minute More" was originally written for Elvis Presley by songwriters Don Robertson and Hal Blair. The song was also recorded in 1959 by pianist Earl Grant. This version is used as closing song in the Black Mirror episode Striking Vipers.

I'll only love you 
As long as the sea
Rolls on endlessly
To the shore
I'll love you til then
Not one minute more

I'll only love you
Til there's only night 
And the sun
The sun gives no light as before
I'm gonna love you til then
Not one minute more

I'm yours, heart and soul, I'm yours
And all that I'll ever possess
But if you should say to me
Will you always be
I'll just have to confess

I'll only love you
As long as the beat 
The beat of my heart
Can rest me still once more

I can love you til then
Not one minute more
I know I can love you til then
Not one minute more
