Well a love won't last the night

With a true fine love all mine 
Forever and one day 
Now my eyes are overflowin' 
With the memories such as those 

They're tear-stained memories 
Take it from a fool who knows 
Now my tears are fallin' and I feel the pain 
Here comes all that hurt again 

But while my heart keeps beating 
I'll keep repeating 
The same mistakes that I made before 
The ones that made me walk the floor 

I got a sack full of those 
Take it from a fool who knows 
Well my tongue's gettin' tired 
I been gettin wired 

While my heart keeps beating 
I keep repeating 
The same mistakes that I made before 
The ones that made love walk out the door 

I got a sack full of those 
That I'll keep diggin' into 
A lonesome road with a cold wind blowin' 
The path I chose, take it from a fool who knows
