Hank Locklin – You Only Want Me When You're Lonely lyrics

You only want me when you're lonely when no one else want you it seems
And even though you call me darling I know I'm never in your dreams
I'm just someone you always turn to each time your new love turns you down
You only want me when you're lonely when there's nobody else around
[ piano ]
I'm just your temporary sweetheart who only sees you now and then
And though I say I won't forgive you I'm glad when you come back again
Why do I let you fool me darling the way you break my heart's a crime
You only want me when you're lonely and I want you all of the time
