This song is from My Colouring Book (2004), Agnetha's comeback album after an abscence of 17 years. This project had started 4 years earlier. Agnetha recalls:
"I didn't only want very famous songs. It would have been a little too easy to pick a bunch of chart toppers. I've chosen the songs I felt for the most and it became quite a few. I had about fifty or sixty songs that I could see myself doing. Then we tried a little more than twenty songs and now there are thirteen left."
"At first I searched in my own record collection, but I also went to a record store in Hässelby that specializes in music from the 60's. There I nearly got a fever. It started to vibrate in me when I was browsing through records by Petula Clark, Rita Pavone, Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield and, of course, Connie Francis. Plus some guys like Paul Anka and Neil Sedaka among others. I bought so much there."
"For me my teens were very much about music, in me and around me. If I wasn't writing my own, I listened to music or was singing with a dance orchestra. When I look back I see what a deep impression all of this left on me. The gratitude toward the artists, the songs and all that they've given me. The impressions I've got without really thinking about it, being aware of it. Now I understand when I listen to these artists, all the work that's behind these seemingly simple songs. It was because of this that I learned to sing in English. That's where I laid the foundation."
"We wanted to work without stress, without pressure. Hopefully it can be heard on the record that it is a calm, secure and warm atmosphere surrounding the recordings. We have recorded it through my production company, so we have not worked with a record company until the end."
"That we could do the album in the Atlantis studio was great fun of course. But I felt nervous starting over again. I had built up some kind of fear of the microphone and it took three to four weeks before it subsided. I was very stressed when I got in front of the microphone. There was some struggle with my voice before we got going. It's like a rusty pipe but then it suddenly cleared. And once it did it was fun and I felt that it would work out."
"I wanted to record this album partly because I have received many letters over the years where people write that they miss my voice. My own prime motivation has been the love for songs from the 50's and 60's, where there are very, very strong melodies and poignant lyrics. Many recordings from the time are fantastic. I feel very happy that I was so young when everything exploded in popular music. With this album I want to act as an intermediary of my experiences with these songs and artists. It's a tribute to them and what they've given me."
Agnetha's comments on Love Me With All Your Heart are:
"This is an example of how we worked with the songs. Petula Clark has a verse in Spanish in the song and I wanted to keep that. I don't speak Spanish, even if I have sung some in Spanish with ABBA. Then we had Ana Martinez with us in the studio. Now I had a Spanish interpreter so that the part really should be correct. There are many ears out there listening and it's important that I don't sing wrong."

Love me with all of your heart,
That's all I want, love
Love me with all of your heart or not at all,
Just promise me this,
That all you'll give me all your kisses,
Every winter, every summer, every fall

When we are far apart or when you're near me,
Love me with all of your heart as I love you,
Don't give me your love, for a moment or an hour
Love me always as you loved me from the start,
With every beat of your heart,
With every beat of your heart,

(Instrumental)

When we are far apart or when you're near me,
Love me with all of your heart as I love you,
Don't give me your love, for a moment or an hour
Love me always as you loved me from the start,
With every beat of your heart,
With every beat of your heart,

(Instrumental)

Es tu palpitar, Es tu cara
Es tu pelo, Son tus besos
Me estremezco... a-a-ah

When we are far apart, or when you're near me
Love me with all of your heart, as I love you
Don't give me your love, for a moment or an hour
Love me always as you loved me from the start,
When we are far apart or when you're near me,
Love me with all of your heart as I love you,
Don't give me your love, for a moment or an hour
Love me always as you loved me from the start,
With every beat of your heart,
With every beat of your heart,
With every beat of your heart,
With every beat of your heart.
