Jim Reeves – What's In It For Me lyrics

I know that I'm a fool to keep on loving you so hopelessly
Someone else is in your heart so what's in it for me
Why do I dream of you when I'm just dreaming of what used to be
There's no future in the past so what's in it for me
But I can't help it I can't seem to break the ties that bind
These ties of love are wound too tight around this heart of mine
I know that it's a sin to wish my life could end and cease to be
But what's life without your love what's in it for me
[ trumpet ]
But what's life without your love what's in it for me
