Well now you say you've found another man who does things to you that I can't And that no matter what I do it's all over now Between me and you girl But I can't believe what you say No I can't believe what you say 'Cause baby
[Chorus:] I don't want to fade away Oh I don't want to fade away Tell me what can I do what can I say 'Cause darlin' I don't want to fade away
Well now you say that you've made up your mind It's been such a long, long time since it's been good with us And that somewhere back along the line you lost your love and I lost your trust Now rooms that once were so bright are filled with the coming night, darlin'
You say it's not easy for you And that you've been so lonely While other girls go out doing what they want to do You say that you miss the nights whe we'd go out dancing The days when you and I walked as two Well girl, I miss them too Oh I swear that I do Oh girl
Now baby I don't want to be just another useless memory holding you tight Or just some other ghost out on the street to whom you stop and politely speak When you pass on by vanishing into the night Left to vanish into the night No baby
