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

Darling, 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 though 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

Darling, 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

Believe me, I would let you go if I could
But I don't know if it's worse 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 trying to hold on

Darling, 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

I feel you growing away from me
I feel you growing away from me
I feel you growing away from me
...
