Jim Reeves – I'm Getting Better lyrics

I walked by the river
Where we said goodbye
Thought of your kisses
And didn't even cry

I'm getting better
(Getting better)
I'm getting better
(Getting better)

I talked with an old friend
He asked about you
I managed to tell him
With just a tear or two

I'm getting better
(Getting better)
I'm getting better
(Getting better)

I know I'll never be the same
I was standing too close to the flame
But it doesn't hurt so much
To hear your name

I think I'll make it
I'm getting better
(Getting better)
