Love Is A Hurtin' Thing
(Raleigh / Linden)

For every little kiss there's a little teardrop
For every single thrill there's another heartache
The road is rough
The going gets tough

[1: Yes] love is a hurtin' thing
Oh, love is a hurtin' thing

When you're in my arms I'm a king on a throne
But when we're apart I walk the streets alone
One day happiness
