Song title: Slow fade

Slow fade

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 between me and you
I don't believe what you say
But love can I change it one day?
And baby

I don't wanna fade away
No I don't wanna fade away
Cause baby I don't wanna 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 I don't wanna ask
I don't believe what you're saying

Cause baby I don't wanna fade away
Oh I don't wanna fade away
Oh no I don't wanna fade away

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 when we'd go out dancing
It was the days when you and I walked as two
You say that I never loved you
Well girl you know thats not true

Now baby I don't wanna be just another useless memory holding you tight
Or just some other ghost out on the street to whom you stop and politely speak
Thats right
And if you vanish into the night
Left to vanish into the night
No darling

I don't wanna fade away
Oh I don't wanna fade away
If there is anything I will pay
Cause baby I don't wanna fade away
