"I Kept on Loving You" is a song written by Paul Williams and Roger Nichols. It was the eleventh song of The Carpenters' second album, Close to You.

The preceding song, "Mr. Guder", faded directly into "I Kept on Loving You" on the album. However, the single version has none of the string fadeout.
