Lyrics

 

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 1962

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

Oh, and we all wondered if she would

And it kept running 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
