"Fading" as written by Lamar Taylor, Darnell Dalton, Jamal Jones, William Hodge, Quintin Amey and Alex Gazaway....
You say you love me
Well they feel like words to me
Well this just ain't working
Stop thinking you can run over me
I'm drifting, I'm settling
Off to a foreign place
If I can't see what's in front of me
It's a mystery, well then apparently

Things just ain't the same
And I'm ready for change
Go on, begone, bye bye, so long
Can't you see that you're
Fading, fading, fading, fa-a-a-a-away
Away, away, away, away
I opened up my eyes, and I finally realized
Today, today, it's too late
You're fading away

Put a sock in it just stop running your mouth
Got my mind made up, I ain't coming back again
No way, no way, no way, no way
'Cause I'm so fed up, boy you got me messed up
If we hookin' back up, don't press your luck today, today
I'm blowing you away

Things just ain't the same
And I'm ready for change
Go on, begone, tata so long
Can't you see that you're
Fading, fading, fading, fa-a-a-a-away
Away, away, away, away
I opened up my eyes, and I finally realized
Today, today, it's too late
You're fading away

Saw you turn into a ghost right in front of my eyes
Tell me what's a girl to do when she's crying inside?
I'm about to go insane
I'm jumping off this train
Whether wrong or right, I'll be gone by night

Can't you see that you're
Fading, fading, fading, fa-a-a-a-away
Away, away, away, away
I opened up my eyes, and I finally realized
Today, today, it's too late
You're fading away

    General CommentThis song is about a girl who just had enough with this guy she used to love, but she's tired of all the drama involved and decides to move on and encourages him to do the same.

    "you say you love me but they feel like words to me
    but this just aint workin, still thinkin you can run over me
    drifiting, settling up to a foreign place.
    if i can't see what's in front of me,
    it's a mystery, but then apparently"
    (he insists that he loves her, but she no longer believes in him. For some reason they grew apart and love began to fade away. She's now comfortable on her own, making things her own way.)

    "things just aint the same, and i'm ready for change.
    go on, be gone, bye bye, so long."

    (She has changed. The vulnerable love she used to have for this guy faded away. Now she tells him to go away)

    "can't you see that you're fading fading fading faaading away away away away.
    i opened up my eyes and i finally realized today,
    today is too late, you're fading away.
    put a sock in it, just stop running your mouth, got my mind made up,
    i aint comin back again, no way, no way, no way, no way."

    (Again, she tells him to go away. There is no going back, what had to be done, is already done)

    "cuz i'm so fed up boy, you got me messed up
    if we're hookin back up, don't press your luck today.
    i'm blowing you away.
    things just aint the same, and i'm ready for change.
    go on, be gone, ta ta, so long."
    (She tells him she's tired of all the drama they're been through. That he got her messed up)

    "saw you turn into a ghost right in front of my eyes.
    tell me what's a girl to do when she's crying inside?
    i'm about to go insane, i'm jumping off this train,
    whether wrong or right, i'll be gone by night."
    (he turned into a ghost in her life. Became part of her past. Their love faded infront of their eyes. No matter how hard it is for her or him, this time there is no going back.)

    General CommentRihanna said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that this Ester Dean penned cut is the most personal song on Loud. She added: "It's about the end of a relationship and how you deal with it and move on."


    The song samples "One By One," a track performed by Enya from her 2000 album, A Day Without Rain
