(peak Billboard position # 9 in 1964)
Words and Music by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil
I can see you're slipping away from me
And you're so afraid I'll plead with you to stay
But I'm gonna be strong I'll let you go your way
Our love is gone, there's no sense in holding on
And your pity now would be more than I could bear
So I'm gonna be strong I'll pretend I don't care
I'm gonna be strong and stand as tall as I can
I'm gonna be strong and let you go along and take it like a man
When you say it's the end I'll hand you a line
I'll smile and say Don't you worry, It's fine
And you'll never know, darling, after you kiss me goodbye
How I'll break down and cry
Cry......
Cry......
Cry......
