I can do most anything,
play my guitar and sing
I can leave the past behind
when the past is only in my mind

But, Babe, what I had with you was so real
I learned to love
I learned to feel


And now I can't let go
No, I can't let go,
You know I can't let go
Of lovin' you

I can sell these records
Songs we used to sing together
I can leave this old house
They say a new start's prob'bly better

But I can't leave these memories
Of the things we used to do
I can't forget the way I felt
When I was loving' you



You're just a picture now
between plastic and a page
I'm just a fixture now
I really show my age

You're just a picture now
in a frame inside the drawer
I'm a fool who wondered how
I wound up face-down on the floor


Of lovin' you, of lovin' you,
of lovin' you.
