​I Can't Fly

This song is by Jim Reeves and appears on the album According To My Heart (RCA Camden) (1960) and on the compilation album Welcome to My World (1996).

I've tried my very best
To meet all of your demands
The more I try more faults you find
I just don't understand.

You want me to be perfect
And with all my heart I've tried
You're looking for an angel
And I'm sorry I can't fly.

If you could only feel the pain
That's in this heart of mine
Each little fault you find with me
You turn into a crime.

Your doubtful thoughts and jealousy
Have caused our love to die
You're looking for an angel
And I'm sorry I can't fly.

--- Instrumental ---

Love could have been the sweetest thing
Two people ever knew
If you had only realized
How much I cared for you.

I know you'll go on searching
For that perfect guy
And I hope his wings are pretty
'Cause you see I can't fly...
