Losing Her By Fractions
 
Lyrics
VERSE
Don't want to lose her, but she's slippin' away
Can't seem to stop her or show her the way
So many good times; guess I never understood
That it could take her mind; I never thought it would

CHORUS
She's quite the attraction
But now it's an uphill climb
'Cause I'm losing her by fractions
One fifth at a time

VERSE
Good times to bad, not much left to hold onto
She may never know what she has put me through
When it holds her so tight, her world becomes the night
And she forgets the difference between wrong and right

Repeat CHORUS

VERSE
She's about the best thing ever happened to me
I'd do most anything to see her gettin' free
But I can't take much more; we're wastin' away
Though there's hope in my heart that help is on the way

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yes, I'm losing her by fractions; one fifth at a time

Story Behind the Song:
Heard someone say that she was losing a boyfriend by fractions -- one fifth at a time. The play on words was obvious. I call this genre "blue country rock."
