Del McCoury – When It Stops Hurtin' lyrics

Well I've seen broken hearts before
And I can tell by lookin' at you
Some sweet little mama took you for a ride and left you standing on the avenue
You suddenly discovered that first time lovers
Are not all sugar and spice
Now you're sittin' here, cryin' the blues askin' me my advice

Well I traveled down that road before
Brother I can sure testify
Your heart starts to achin'
And your hands go to shakin'
You just wanna lay down and die
And there's no disguise for those tear stained eyes
Well I can tell you one thing for certain
It's gonna take a little time to get her off your mind
But you'll feel a lot better
When it stops hurtin'

Listen and learn can sometimes burn
When you give into desire
And you can say I'm wrong but it won't be long
Before you're jumping back in the fire
The line forms in the rear my friend
When you're talking 'bout broken romances
I can sympathize, well there's no surprise
You're just a victim of circumstances


These love sick blues might last for days
Or they could go on for years
The things she said has left your head
Droopin' like a hound dog's ears
Your minds confused
All your hearts been used
And you're having trouble finding the reason
You gotta hide your heart right from the start
Cause everyday is open season
