How long does it hurt when a heart breaks how long can you stand the pain
How long does one dream when a dream die and only the mem'ries remain
It seems it must take forever to forget the love you once knew
How long does it hurt when a heart breaks how long must the heart ache for you
[ guitar ]
How long does it hurt when a heart breaks oh how many tears must fall
Before one is free from the chains of a love that's beyond all recall
I keep saying soon I'll forget you but somehow I'll never do
How long does it hurt when a heart breaks as long as I keep loving you
