If You Think It Hurts

I've been lovin you so long now
It's rare we don't see eye to eye
But this time I really broke your trust
You looked at me with such disgust
if you're leaving me
It makes perfect sense to cry


If you think it hurts ...you're right
Like a needle thru my chest
If we give up without a fight
How can we say we gave our best I read your letter on the dresser
With your version of the truth
Yeah, If you think it hurts you're right Cause I won't stop loving you


I figured you'd love me forever
In a place where I could hang my hat
But I kept you disappointed
My last straw has been anointed
Is this hard for you
Or am I the only one that's sad

Last line twice

The song is very lovely, I love the softness of the voice, the mellow way the vocalist sings it, really a good song,
