He said "I'll love you till I die", 
She told him "You'll forget in time"
As the years went slowly by, 
She still preyed upon his mind

He kept her picture on his wall, 
Went half-crazy now and then
He still loved her through it all, 
Hoping she'd come back again

Kept some letters by his bed 
Dated nineteen sixty-two
He had underlined in red 
Every single "I love you"

I went to see him just today, 
Oh but I didn't see no tears
All dressed up to go away, 
First time I'd seen him smile in years

He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving her today

You know, she came to see him one last time 
Aww, and we all wondered if she would 
And it kept runnin' through my mind
"This time he's over her for good"

He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving her today
