<p>Ideally, a song tells a story. Many of my songs are anchored by an event that happened to me or a friend, "Fading Away" is one of the latter. And its lyrics are adaptable to whatever sex you happen to identify as.&nbsp;&nbsp; Cheating is a common theme in music of all genres. Although the song's protagonist is not me,&nbsp; the poor guy in "Fading Away" has been ill-used by his lover, and he's not happy. In fact, he feels like he is becoming invisible, thus the title. Halfway through, he's at a wild party. There's one particularly boisterous woman there, and she apparently caught his attention,&nbsp; because by song's end, he's happy his two-timing baby is hitting the road. All he wants is for her to return his beloved records. Who of us of a certain age hasn't lost a great LP in a split-up? I never did get back "Tumbleweed Connection." These days, at least it's easy to retain your mp3s.</p>

<p><strong>Fading Away</strong><strong><br /> <br /> <strong>Music &amp; Lyrics by Dave Molter </strong></strong><strong><br /> </strong><strong><strong>&copy; Copyright 2019 All rights reserved.</strong></strong><strong><br /> <br /> </strong></p>
<p><strong>VERSE 1</strong><strong><br /> <br /> </strong>I used to think that we had somethin' really special<strong><br /> </strong>And we would be together for a &nbsp;long, long time<br /> But now I see that it was only superficial<br /> You drive me out of my mind<br /> <br /> I know that you been steppin' out with other fellas<br /> It&rsquo;s as plain as day<br /> Congratulations if you tried to make me jealous&nbsp; &nbsp;<br /> <strong>&lsquo;</strong>Cause I feel betrayed</p>
<p>And I yi yi yi&rsquo;m fading away, <br /> Coming apart at the seams<br /> Cause you, you, you, you, you ran away<br /> You ran away with my dreams</p>
<p><strong>VERSE 2</strong></p>
<p>You used to tell me I reminded you of Elvis<br /> Your little hunka hunka burnin&rsquo; love<br /> But now I get the feelin&rsquo; that you gonna shelve us<br /> I guess I wasn&rsquo;t enough</p>
<p>I wish that I could say it really doesn&rsquo;t phase me<br /> But I ain&rsquo;t built that way<br /> So grab your pencil and start to erase me<br /> Then blow me away</p>
<p><strong>VERSE 3</strong><br /> We used to make it every day and twice on Sunday<br /> Now you&rsquo;re too busy watchin&rsquo; Jeopardy<br /> Who was the guy my sister saw you with that one day?<br /> It sure wasn&rsquo;t me</p>
<p>I heard you&rsquo;re leavin&rsquo; for a permanent vacation<br /> I got just one thing to say<br /> Give back my records on your way to the station<br /> I need something to play</p>
<p><strong>CHORUS X2</strong></p>
