Song Lyric Sunday: Losing – ‘(I Know) I’m Losing You’

For the final stage of February’s exploration of the theme of love, Helen at ‘This Thing Called Life One Word At A Time’ is looking for a song about ‘losing someone you love’.

You could argue that this is a bit of a bummer to end on, but there’s no shortage of decent possibilities. However, my choice is based – not, thankfully, on personal experience – on the fact that Madame absolutely loves Rod Stewart. And back in 1971 he nailed this song, originally by The Temptations.

Plus – not the least of it – today is Madame’s birthday and I know she’ll like to hear this again:

Your love is fading, I can feel your love fading
Woman it’s fading away from me
‘Cause your personal touch has grown cold
as if someone else controls your very soul
I fooled myself long as I can
I can feel the presence of another man
It’s there when you speak my name
It’s just not the same
Oh honey I’m losing you
I can feel it in the air, it’s there everywhere
Oh I’m losing you
I can feel it in my bones
any day you’ll be up and gone
Ooh I’m losing you
It’s all over your face someone’s takin’ my place
Could it be that I’m losing you
When I look into your eyes a reflection of a face I see
Oh Lord I’m losing you
I’m hurt, downhearted and worried girl
’cause that face doesn’t belong to me
Your love is fadin’, I can feel it fadin’
Oh away from me
I can feel it in the air, it’s there everywhere
ooh I’m losing youI don’t wanna lose you
but I know I’m gonna groove you
Oh Lord I’m losing you, and I’m a losin’ you
Your love is fadin’, I can feel it fadin’
Oh Lord I’m losing you

  1. I agree, this one was a bummer to end on. I was thinking of the natural progression of love and was thinking about something a bit more macabre than a break-up, although this fits the theme just the same. I love how you chose Madame’s favorite singer. Happy Birthday Madame! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. I actually listened to this song earlier today . . . it’s been a Rod Stewart, Rolling Stones kind of day 🙂 Good choice, especially in your honor of Madame!
