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

Chorus:

Id like to have that one back
Ive 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 Im 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

Chorus

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

    It reminds me of my first high school love ! I always wonder what could have and should have been sad, happy now but there's always that what if?

    This is one of my favorite songs of his. He's regretting a breakup with a good hearted woman that he mistreated. I like the tune behind the lyrics.
