you can’t stop loving me now lyrics – nitty gritty dirt band

“you can’t stop loving me now”

i can see in your face
that you’ve run a long race
and you’d like to sit down
for a while

well, if this is the case
you’ll be leaving this place
why have you put me
on this trial

oh, you can’t stop lovin’ me now
oh, you can’t stop lovin’ me now
don’t you think you’d like to stay
try and love me one more day
oh, you can’t stop lovin’ me now

is it something i’ve said
that has made our love dead
you’ve grown weary
of loving from me

like a sky filled with rain
my head’s foggy insane
as i strain helplessly
for a key

oh, you can’t stop lovin’ me now
oh, you can’t stop lovin’ me now
don’t you think you’d like to stay
try and love me one more day
oh, you can’t stop lovin’ me now

now you’re smiling i see
but it is not for me
’cause you’d love me
you say you must be fair

how i’d like to believe
that you won’t really leave
close my eyes and talk to
your empty chair

oh, you can’t stop lovin’ me now
oh, you can’t stop lovin’ me now
don’t you think you’d like to stay
try and love me one more day
oh, you can’t stop lovin’ me now
oh, you can’t stop lovin’ me now
mmm, you can’t stop lovin’ me now
oh no, you can’t stop lovin’ me now
