Jim Reeves – I Can't Fly lyrics

I've tried my very best to meet all of your demands
The more I try more faults you find I just don't understand
You want me to be perfect and with all my heart I've tried
You're looking for an angel and I'm sorry I can't fly
If you could only feel the pain that's in this heart of mine
Each little fault you find with me you turn into a crime
Your doubtful thoughts and jealousy have caused our love to die
You're looking for an angel and I'm sorry I can't fly
[ fiddle - steel ]
Love could have been the sweetest thing two people ever knew
If you had only realized how much I cared for you
I know you'll go on searching for that perfect guy
And I hope his wings are pretty cause you see I can't fly
