How do I Stop Loving You

How do I Stop Loving You Engelbert Humperdinck

 

I’m trying so hard to forget you.
And leave the life we had behind.
And there are times I feel the day has come,
I’ve chased you from my mind.

But I’m afraid there’s allways something,
That sets me back and makes me see.
You’re more than just a memory in the past,
You’re still a part of me.

So how do I stop loving you?
Forget things that we used to do?
Forget all the dreams that we shared?
And how my life was knowing you cared?
Why do I end up where I start, each time I try?
Just tell me how I can forget,
So I can say goodbye…

I’m tired of all the lonely evenings,
And all the many times I’ve cried.

I’m tired of wondering what I might have done to keep you by my side.

And reaching out across your pillow,
I start remembering you’re gone.
And though I know that we can never be,
The pain in me goes on.

So how do I stop loving you?
Forget things that we used to do?
Forget all the dreams that we shared,
And how my life was knowing you cared?
Why do I end up where I start, each time I try?

Just tell me how I can forget,
So I can say goodbye…
So how do I stop loving you?
Please tell me why…
I find it so hard to forget.
And hard to say… Goodbye.
Goodbye…

  1. I’ve always thought when one has truly loved, no matter what the reason for no longer being together, their absence will never completely leave you.
    One of Tom’s and my favorite song’s is ‘After The Loving.’ We didn’t meet until our late 30s and by then, believe we had our feet planted firmly on the ground.
    Remember the song, ‘If You Can’t Be With The One You Love, Love The One You’re With?’ I don’t think that’s a positive thing to do. I wonder how many individuals have ended up with the wrong partner thinking those very words.
    Music is a powerful life force.
    Tom and I saw Ethan Bortnick in concert Tue evening. He put on an excellent performance.
