Kitty Wells — Heartaches By The Number lyrics

Heartache number one was when you left me
I never knew that I could hurt this way
And heartache number two was when you came back again
You came back and never meant to stay.

Now I've got heartaches by the number
Troubles by the score
Every day you love me less
Each day I love you more.

Yes, I've got heartaches by the number
A love that I can't win
But the day that I stop counting
That's the day my world will end.

--- Instrumental ---

Heartache number three was when you called me
And said that you were coming back to stay
With hopefull heart I've waited for your knock on the door
I've waited but you must have lost your way.

Now I've got heartaches by the number
Troubles by the score
Every day you love me less
Each day I love you more.

Yes, I've got heartaches by the number
A love that I can't win
But the day that I stop counting
That's the day my world will end...
