Heartaches by the Number

This song is by Conway Twitty and appears on the album I Love You More Today (1969).

(Written by 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 come back again
You came back and never meant to stay.

Now I've got heartaches by the number,
Troubles by the score
Ev'ryday you love me less,
Each day I love you more
Yes I've got heartaches by the number,
A love that I can't win
But the day that I stop counting,
That's the day my world will end.

--- Instrumental ---

Heartache number three was when you called me
And said that you were coming back to stay
With hopeful heart I waited for your knock on the door
I waited but you must have lost your way.

Now I've got heartaches by the number,
Troubles by the score
Ev'ryday you love me less,
Each day I love you more
Yes I've got heartaches by the number,
A love that I can't win
But the day that I stop counting,
That's the day my world will end...
