Ray Price – That's What I Get For Loving You lyrics

(Bobby Helms - Estelle Evins)
Eyes that stay awake until the day is dawning
Tears that break my heart in two
Chains that bind my heart inside me
And that's what I get for loving you.
Arms that reach out in the darkness
To hold the love that once was true
Only memories to haunt me
And that's what I get for loving you.
That's what I get for believing
That is all I trust in heart a love will never do
All I have is just a picture
And that's what I get for loving you.
--- Instrumental ---
Afraid that someday I might see you
While you're holding someone new
Afraid my heart will fall to pieces
And that's what I get for loving you.
A path that should be just forgotten
Is all my heart is clinging to
There's no hope for your returning
And that's what I get for loving you.
It's the worth that I am paying
Should I live my heart keeps trusting you
I know my heart is only waiting
And that's what I get for loving you...
