He seemed to love me so how was I to know
I'd be going through the motions of living
I've lost so much within I'll never love again
I'm going through the motions of living.

When you see me dressed in my very best
I'm going through the motions of living
It isn't really me it's what I used to be
I'm going through the motions of living.

You have to live so much to know so little
So little in return for all the giving
We laughed we loved I cried we parted and I died
Now, I'm going through the motions of living.

I'm just going through the motions of living...
