  • So you're leaving in the morning
    On the early train
    Oh, I could say everything's alright
    And I could pretend and say good bye

    Got your ticket
    Got your suitcase
    Got your leaving smile
    Oh, I could say that's the way it goes
    And I could pretend and you won't know
    That I was lying

    'Cause I can't stop loving you
    No, I can't stop loving you
    No, I won't stop loving you
    Why should i?

    We took a taxi to the station
    Not a word was said
    And I saw you walk across the road
    For maybe the last time, I don't know

    Feeling humble
    I heard a rumble
    On the railway track
    And when I hear the whistle blow
    I'll walk away and you won't know
    That I'll be crying

    'Cause I can't stop loving you
    No, I can't stop loving you
    No, I won't stop loving you
    Why should i?

    (Even try) I'll always be here by your side
    (Why, why, why) I never wanted to say goodbye
    (Why even try) I'm always here if you change, change your mind

    So you're leaving in the morning
    On the early train
    Oh, I could say everything's alright
    And I could pretend and say good bye
    But that would be lying

    Because I can't stop loving you (can't stop loving you)
    No, I can't stop loving you (i won't stop loving you)
    No, I won't stop loving you
    Why should i? (Why should i? Even try)

    Because I can't stop loving you (can't stop loving you)
    No, I can't stop loving you (it's all I can do to keep from crying)
    No, I won't stop loving you
    Why should i? (Why should i?)
    Why should i? (Tell me why)
    Why should i? Even try Writer/s: Billy Nicholls

  • Richard from Nsw, AustraliaLove this song-- makes me think of a friend of mine-- sadly, that's all we are- friends... She kinda knows how I feel but last time I mentioned the subject, she (again) told me she wasn't ready for a relationship. Don't know if she's just stringing me along- after 2 years, it's a possibility-- but right now I care for her deeply and, while I'm so grateful for her friendship, if we could ever take it a bit further- I'd be ecstatic. I've not mentioned it for about a year- I guess will just wait and see what happens... We don't live close to each other and our work schedules clash- I could go on boring you all but I won't!
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyTwo completely different songs titled "Can't Stop Loving You" also made Billboard's Top 100. One was by Tom Jones, it peaked at No. 25 in 1970; and the other by The Last Word in 1967, it reahed No. 78!!!
  • Josep from Dubrovnik, CroatiaThis version is okay, but Keith Urban's version is SO much better...
  • Robert from C.b., NsThis song was also recorded by the southern rock band "The Outlaws" on their 1980 album "Ghost Riders".
  • Laura from Bridgend, United KingdomThis song is a reminder of my life growing up. Lovely song with a lot of meaning to me.
  • Rusty from Lake Park, MnI love this song! especially the part when he goes "even try" in the background. Very powerful
  • Jamie from Des Moines, IaThe line in this song that rips my heart out is when he says he'll still be waiting, "if you should change, change your mind."
  • Sara Mackenzie from Middle Of Nowhere, FlNice song, very sad.
  • Lisa from Deer Park, NyThis album was worth the wait from Phil! You go with your bad self and keep rocking!!!

    DJ Lisa
  • Jolie from Bellwood, IlThis song is a great song that says you can love anyone anywhere with love.
