Album: Eric Carmen (1975)
Charted: 11
  • No use pretending things can still be right
    There's really nothing more to say
    I'll get along without your kiss tonight
    Just close the door and walk away

    Never gonna fall in love again
    I don't want to start with someone new
    ‘Cause I couldn't bear to see it end
    Just like me and you
    No, I never want to feel the pain
    Of remembering how it used to be
    Never gonna fall in love again
    Just like you and me

    At first we thought that love was here to stay
    The summer made it seem so right
    But like the sun we watched it fade away
    From morning into lonely night Writer/s: ERIC CARMEN, SERGEI RACHMANINOFF

  • Reed from New Ulm, MnWish he would have had more hits. Great singer.
  • Les from Joplin, MoEric's first hit on his follow-up LP was entitled "She Did It," and it was an upbeat answer to his first two melancholy solo hits, this one and "All By Myself."
  • Steve from Las Vegas, NvThis song has also been covered by John Travolta and appears on the "Slow Dancing" CD collection
  • Ivan from Dallas, TxI just downloaded the song from Apple's iTunes and have played it so many times. Carmen has such a melancholy and sad voice which highlights the mood of this song. I'd been personally through such circumstances and therefore can resonate with the lyrics. A very good song.
