(peak Billboard position # 7 in 1964)
Words and music by Howie Greenfield and Helen Miller
It hurts to be in love when the only you love
Turns out to be someone who's NOT IN LOVE WITH YOU
It hurts to love her so when deep down inside you know
She will never want you NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO
And so you cry a little bit (it hurts to be in love)
Ah, I die a little bit (it hurts to be in love)
Day and night, night and day, it hurts to be in love this way.
How can long can I exist wanting lips I've never kissed?
She gives all her kisses TO SOMEBODY ELSE
She thinks I'm just a friend, though it hurts I must pretend
The only way to keep her is KEEP 'ER TO MYSELF
And so I cry a little bit (it hurts to be in love)
Ah, I die a little bit (it hurts to be in love)
Day and night, night and day, it hurts to be in love this way.

And so I cry a little bit (it hurts to be in love)
Ah, I die a little bit (it hurts to be in love)
Day and night, night and day, it hurts to be in love this way.
It hurts to be in love, day and night, night and day
It hurts to be in love, night and day, day and night
It hurts to be in love, day and night, night and day
