Life Fades Away

This song is by Roy Orbison and appears on the movie soundtrack Less Than Zero (1987) and on the compilation album The Soul of Rock and Roll (2008).

My time has come, the clouds are calling
December wind has come my way
And now I feel the will falling
All at once it's too late, life fades away

The night is my wake
All thoughts slip away
And even though I must leave you
Remember I love you

I'll always be in your memory
And I will always be with you when I'm gone

Fade, life fades away
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Life fades away

I'm tired of tomorrow
Lost for today
I long to be at peace forever

My eternity
And even though I will miss you
I must leave you

Fade, life fades away
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Life fades away

So please forgive me
And try not to cry
I long to be at peace forever more
Forever more

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Life fades away
Life fades away
Life fades away, away

One last thing to say
Life fades away
