He Stopped Loving Her Today

He Stopped Loving Her Today

Leon Russell

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 nineteen sixty-two
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

He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving her today
