Love's a Four Letter Word 
    (Difford/Tilbrook) 
      (one of a hundred...) 

      I wonder if she'll bury my love 
      So no one else will find 
      A heart that has been broken 
      A hundred or more times 
      And when she gets up to wander 
      I watch her as she goes 
      Our eyes meeting for a second 
      But only she will know 

      Love's a four letter story 
      I thought I'd made you see 
      Turns out that I'm just loving  
      A girl that used to be 
      Just one of a hundred heartaches 
      So long sweet misery 

      I listen to the things she's saying 
      Agreeing all the time 
      These painful words forever  
      Will prey upon my mind 
      And when she gets up to wander 
      I wonder if she knows 
      Of each and every heartache 
      That comes as lovers go 

      (One of a hundred heartaches...) 

      I wonder if she'll bury my love 
      Now I deserve to cry 
      I listen to the things she's saying 
      Agreeing all the time 
      And when she gets up I wonder 
      If this is really true 
      I guess there'll never be another 
      Another love won't do 

      (Just one, one of a hundred heartaches...)
