Words and music by rick nielsen

It's been a long time, baby
It's been a long time comin'
I don't like it
It's been on my mind, baby
It's not the same anymore
Let's face it, we've changed, yeah yeah

Don't stand there laughin'
'cause I'm here cryin'
Don't have no pity, baby
'cause my sun's never shinin'

And don't think I ever think about you with another man
And don't think I care about you, honey
You just don't understand
That's why I say

Can't stop it but I'm gonna try
Can't stop it but I'm gonna try
Can't stop it but I'm gonna try
Can't stop it but I'm gonna try
Can't stop lovin' you baby
Can't stop it but I'm gonna try

It's been a long time, baby
It's been a long time comin'
I don't like it
It's been on my mind, baby
It's not the same anymore
Let's face it, we've changed, yeah yeah

Here comes that feelin'
That feelin' never stops
From the first time that I met you
Till the last time that we talked

And some days I don't think I'll make it through
I'd feel better if you felt it too
But don't have no pity, pity baby
You just don't understand
That's why I say

Can't stop it but I'm gonna try
Can't stop it but I'm gonna try
Can't stop it but I'm gonna try
Can't stop it but I'm gonna try
Can't stop lovin' you baby
Can't stop it but I'm gonna try

It's been a long time, baby
It's been a long time, baby
I don't like it
It's been on my mind, baby
It's not the same anymore
Let's face it, we've changed, yeah yeah
