You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips
There's no tenderness like before in your fingertips

You're trying hard not to show it
Baby, baby I know it

You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Whoa, that lovin' feelin'
You lost that lovin' feelin'
Now it's gone, gone, gone, whoa
Yeah

There's no tenderness in your eyes when I reach out for you
Girl, you're starting to criticize every little thing that I do
It makes me just feel like crying
Oh, baby, something beautiful's dyin'

You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Whoa, that lovin' feelin'
You lost that lovin' feelin'
Now it's gone, gone, gone, whoa

Baby, baby, I'd get down on my knees for you
If this suit wasn't too tight
If you would only would love me like you used to do
We had a love, a love, a love you don't find everyday
Oh, don't, don't, don't, don't take it away
Listen to me, talking to you

Bring back that lovin' feelin'
Whoa, that lovin' feelin'
Bring back that lovin' feelin'
Now it's gone, gone, gone
And I can't go on, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa

    The Rightous Brothers wrote and sang it. Elvis didn't write any of his songs, he covered a lot other peoples stuff and sang it better. Although there would be a big debate on this one. Also, Elvis was a big fan of the guy with the deep voice in The Rightous Brothers, propbably why he covered it.

    Song about when your wife, girlffriend, etc. loses that loving feeling, youknow they are falling out of live with you and you want it back.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

He certainly did earn that reputation.

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
