​I Got Hurt (Trying To Be The Only Girl In Your Life)

This song is by The Supremes and appears on the album Right On (1970).

I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life

Mama told me don't try
When I said I was gonna be
The girl who'd make you realize
One love was all you need
Looked like I was getting over
When my hopes went tumbling over
From a telephone conversation
That hurt as I heard you say
You kept telling her that I was just your friend
As you whispered words of tenderness and said you'd call again
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life

I kept a secret from you thinking maybe things might change
So I tried just a little bit harder but the end of love still came
Now your mind is set on leaving but I find it hard believing
My dreams won't come true when they're filled with so much love for you
And everything I did, I did to bring you joy
And if I died today on my grave they'd say "That girl sure love that boy"
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life

(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
So I dried my eyes and I walked away alone
And get ready for the emptiness I feel when love is gone
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life

Mama said I've been hurt
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life
(How it hurt, hurt)
I got hurt trying to be the only girl in your life
