George Strait – I'd Like To Have That One Back lyrics

Heard somebody speak her name
They said she was still lookin fine
I could feel that same old flame
I once felt when she was mine
Always thought that I was missin somethin
But I found out much too late
Therell never be another who loved me that way


Id like to have that one back
I've never known someone so true
And a love that's pure and sweet
Is what a man should never lose
And if my lips had said I'm sorry
She might have stopped right in her tracks
Now I find my poor heart saying
Id like to have that one back

I can almost see her standin there
Tears rollin down her face
As she packed away her memories
In that old worn out suit case
If I'd only known then what I know now
Id never open that door
Oh they just don't make hearts like hers any more


I wouldn't here my poor heart sayin
Id like to have that one back
I wouldn't here my poor heart sayin
Id like to have that one back
