Always wanting you, but never having you
Makes it hard to face tomorrow
'Cause I know I'll wake up wanting you again
Always loving you, but never touching you
Sometimes hurts me almost more than I can stand

I'd been better off if I'd turned away
And never looked at you the second time
'Cause I really had my life all together till your eyes met mine

And there I say a yearning and a feeling 'cross the room
That you felt for me
Wish I'd had a way of knowing that the things we had in mind
Could never be

Always wanting you, but never having you
Makes it hard to face tomorrow
'Cause I know I'll wake up wanting you again
Always loving you, but never touching you
Sometimes hurts me almost more than I can stand

Always loving you, but never touching you
Sometimes hurts me almost more than I can stand

Merle Haggard

Merle Ronald Haggard (born April 6, 1937) is an American country music song writer, singer, guitarist, fiddler and instrumentalist. Along with Buck Owens, Haggard and his band The Strangers helped create the Bakersfield sound, which is characterized by the unique twang of Fender Telecaster and the unique mix with the traditional country steel guitar sound, new vocal harmony styles in which the words are minimal, and a rough edge not heard on the more polished Nashville Sound recordings of the same era. more »
