CYNDI LAUPER lyrics - Heartaches By The Number

CYNDI LAUPER
"Heartaches By The Number"
(Harlan Howard)

Heartache number one was when you left me
I never knew that I could hurt this way
And heartache number two was when you came back again
Oh, you came back, but never meant to stay

[Chorus:]
And now I got heartache by the numbers
Troubles by the score
Every day you love me less
Each day I love you more
Yes, I got heartache by the numbers
A love that I can't win
But the day that I stop counting
Is the day my world will end

Heartache number three was when you called me
And said that you was a-coming home to stay
With hoping heart, I waited for your knock at the door
I waited but you must've lost your way

[Chorus:]
And now I got heartache by the numbers
Troubles by the score
Every day you love me less
Each day I love you more
Yes, I got heartache by the numbers
A love that I can't win
But the day that I stop counting
Is the day my world will end
Oh, the day that I stop counting
Is the day my world will end
