(orbison/dees)
1968 version

Tonight at midnight you came by
I shook my head, tried not to cry
Halfway weeping, halfway sleeping
Tossing, turning, trembling, burning
Here it comes, heartache

You wore your hair down
I love it that way
You reached out and touched me
And then you faded away

Its unreal, the way I feel
Its almost dawn and you are gone
Here it comes, heartache

Heartache of heartache
Deeper than blue
Teardrop on teardrop
Im still in love with you

What a way to start a day
Here it comes, heartache over you
Heartache for you
Everytime you walk through my mind
I get that old heartache

1974 version

At night I try not to cry
Each tomorrow brings more sorrow
All the time you're on my mind
My heart just aches, it almost breaks
Its almost dawn, heartache

I know it's over
But I don't know why
You reached out and touched me
And then you said goodbye

Oh it's unreal, the way I feel
Its almost dawn the nights too long
My dream is gone
Im all alone with heartache

Heartache of heartache
Deeper than blue
Teardrop on teardrop
Im still in love with you

Oh, what a way to start a day
Heartaches today like yesterday
Here comes the sun
No place to run from heart
