(Gerry Goffin / Carole King)

Yeah, I will love you for a while
Just how long I cannot say
Long before love grows old
I'll be on my way

While there's fire in your eyes
I will hold you to my heart
Oh, but when the fire dies
We will have to part

Love is strange
While now it makes us glad
When our love's no longer new
It'll make us sad, yeah

So, I will love you for a while
More than that I will not tell
When I leave you
You will say that I loved too well

Yeah, love is strange
While now it makes us glad
When our love's no longer new
It'll make us sad, yeah

So, I will love you for a while
More than that I will not tell
And when I leave you
You will say that I loved too well
Say that I loved too well, boy
Say that I loved too well, yeah
Say that I loved too well-ell
Say that I loved too well, child
Say that I loved too well
