The music of "Unchained Melody" was written by renowned film composer Alex North as a theme for the prison film Unchained and the lyrics by Hy Zaret. They tell of a prisoner's anguished longing for his wife. On June 21, 1977, Elvis had performed "Unchained Melody" for his last Television appearance "Elvis In Concert".
Here is a short sample of the lyrics from Unchained Melody
Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh, wait for me, wait for me
I'll be coming home, wait for me
Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love,
I oh I need your love
