It Keeps Right On A-Hurting (Johnny Tillotson)


I cry myself to sleep each night
Wishing I could hold you tight
Life seems so empty since you went away
The pillow where you’d lay your head
Holds my lonely tears instead
And it keeps right on a-hurting since you’re gone
*It keeps right on a-hurting every minute of the day
Every hour you’re away I feel so lonely
And I can’t help it, I don’t think I can go on
And it keeps right on a-hurting since you’re gone
They say a man should never cry
But when I see you passing by
My heart breaks down and cries a million tears
Now you broke my heart and set me free
But you forgot your memory
And it keeps right on a-hurting since you’re gone*
