You've been my life to me.
My very soul and my heart,
But lately something's come over you,
And it's tearing me apart.

Darlin', I feel you growing away from me
More and more each day.
Whatever you want me to be I'll be
If it keeps you from growing away from me.

Even when you say you love me,
The feeling's no longer there.
I know there's somebody else,
And it's more than I can bear.


Believe me, I would let you go if I could,
But I don't know if it's a worse thing being lonely
Than having you here, in body only.

It's no use pretending
When the love you used to feel is gone,
Yet even though I'm losing you
I can't help tryin' to hold on.


I feel you
Growing away from me.
