The lyrics paint a picture of a love story reaching its inevitable conclusion. The narrator reminisces about shared memories under the “moonlight”, questioning the future without their love. Lines like “What will become of me? What will become of you?” showcase the uncertainty and a touch of desperation in the face of separation. Elvis delivers these lyrics with a raw vulnerability, his voice cracking slightly at times, perfectly capturing the emotional weight of the goodbye.

Musically, the song complements the lyrics beautifully. A gentle piano melody lays the foundation, punctuated by the warm tones of strings and the soft rhythm of a bass and drums. There are no flashy guitar solos or driving beats here. “Memories in Moonlight (What Now My Love)” is all about the emotional weight of the message and the raw power of Elvis’s voice.
