What to know about "Suspicious Minds" by Elvis Presley

Released in 1969 off Presley's album Elvis in Memphis, "Suspicious Minds" peaked at the number-one position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart that year. 

In 2021, Rolling Stone put "Suspicious Minds" on the 70th position on its "500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list, referring to the song as Presley's "masterpiece." 

"He sings so intensely through the fade-out that his band returns for another minute of the tear-stained chorus," the outlet wrote.

"Suspicious Minds" by Elvis Presley lyrics

We're caught in a trap
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much, baby
Why can't you see
What you're doing to me
When you don't believe a word I say?

We can't go on together
With suspicious minds (suspicious minds)
And we can't build our dreams
On suspicious minds

So if an old friend I know
Stops by to say hello
Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?
Here we go again
Asking where I've been
You can't see the tears are real, I'm crying
(Yes I'm crying)

We can't go on together
With suspicious minds (suspicious minds)
And we can't build our dreams
On suspicious minds

Oh, let our love survive
I'll dry the tears from your eyes
Let's don't let a good thing die
When honey, you know I've never lied to you
Mmm, yeah, yeah

We're caught in a trap
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much, baby
Why can't you see
What you're doing to me
When you don't believe a word I say?

Well, don't you know I'm caught in a trap?
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much, baby
Well, don't you know I'm caught in a trap?
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much, baby

Well, don't you know I'm caught in a trap?
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much, baby
Well, don't you know I'm caught in a trap?
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much, baby

Well, don't you know I'm caught in a trap?
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much, baby
Well, don't you know I'm caught in a trap?
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much, baby

Well, don't you know I'm caught in a trap?
