Loretta Lynn – Only Time I Hurt lyrics

Now I know that I'll forget you cause I forgot you a while ago
And when I thought of you just now only one tear drip down slow
My mind is hard and twisted so and it hardly ever sleeks
But the only time I've hurt is when my heart beats
Since I'm finally gettin' over you I think I'll celebrate
Think of breakin' all your pictures and I might throw one away
And I won't feel this awful pain in about ten million weeks
Cause the only time I hurt is when my heart beats
The only time I hurt is when my heart beats
I live in constant mis'ry cause the hurtin' just repeats
I think about you now and then and everytime your mem'ry speaks
But the only time I hurt is when my heart beats
[ steel ]
The only time I hurt...
