Did you ever love someone,
And know that they didn’t love you,
And at night wonder
What good it would do?
Did you ever look inside their heart
And wish that you were there?
Did you ever look inside their eyes
And say a little prayer?
Have you ever seen them walk away
And not want them to go,
And quietly whisper,
“Gosh, How I love you so”?
If you ever fall in love, my friend,
You’ll find it doesn’t pay.
It’s not worth the heartache
It causes every day.
So, I pray, don’t fall in love,
You’ll be hurt before it’s through.
You see, my friend,
I ought to know,
For I fell in love with you!
