​Love Takes a Long Time to Die

This song is by Ronnie Milsap and appears on the album Night Things (1975).

It's not over when you stop crying
And it's the end when you say goodbye
And it's not finally done when you just walk away from someone
'Cause love takes a long time, it takes such a long time to die.

There'll be times when you're alone, you'll softly speak her name
Each one's just about left you one time
Day-dreaming through the glass, you'll see pictures from the past
'Cause love takes a long time, it takes such a long time to die.

It's so hard to shut the door
When mem'ries won't stay behind
They'll come around to remind you
There's love still locked inside.

It's not over when you stop crying
And it's the end when you say goodbye
And it's not finally done when you just walk away from someone
'Cause love takes a long time, it takes such a long time to die...
