About Fading

"Fading" is a song by Barbadian recording artist Rihanna from her fifth studio album, Loud (2010). The song was written by Jamal Jones and Ester Dean, whilst production of the song was completed by Jones under his production name, Polow da Don. Musically, the song samples Irish instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Enya's "One by One", whilst lyrically, the song is about leaving a man in a relationship. After Loud had strong digital download sales in the United Kingdom, "Fading" charted at number 187 on that country's singles chart in November 2010. The song received generally positive reviews from music critics, who praised da Don's production, but one critic criticized Rihanna for copying herself and failing to create something different. Some critics also compared it to one of Rihanna's previous singles, "Take A Bow". The song has also been performed on select dates of the Loud Tour (2011).

You say you love me
Well they feel like words to me
Well this just ain't working
Stop thinking you can run over me
I'm drifting, I'm settling
Off to a foreign place
If I can't see what's in front of me
It's a mystery, well then apparently

Things just ain't the same
And I'm ready for change
Go on, begone, bye bye, so long
Can't you see that you're
Fading, fading, fading, fa-a-a-a-away
Away, away, away, away
I opened up my eyes, and I finally realized
Today, today, it's too late
You're fading away

Put a sock in it just stop running your mouth
Got my mind made up, I ain't coming back again
No way, no way, no way, no way
'Cause I'm so fed up, boy you got me messed up
If we hookin' back up, don't press your luck today, today
I'm blowing you away

Things just ain't the same
And I'm ready for change
Go on, begone, tata so long
Can't you see that you're
Fading, fading, fading, fa-a-a-a-away
Away, away, away, away
I opened up my eyes, and I finally realized
Today, today, it's too late
You're fading away

Saw you turn into a ghost right in front of my eyes
Tell me what's a girl to do when she's crying inside?
I'm about to go insane
I'm jumping off this train
Whether wrong or right, I'll be gone by night

Can't you see that you're
Fading, fading, fading, fa-a-a-a-away
Away, away, away, away
I opened up my eyes, and I finally realized
Today, today, it's too late
You're fading away
