George Strait – I’d Like To Have That One Back Lyrics

I heard somebody speak her name; they said she still was looking fine.
And I could feel that same old flame I once felt when she was mine.
Always thought that I was missin’ something, but I found out much too late.
There’ll never be another who’ll love me that way.
[Chorus:]
I’d like to have that one back, never known someone so true.
And a love that pure and sweet is what a man should never lose.
And if my lips had said, «I’m sorry»,
She might have stopped right in her tracks.
But now I find my poor heart saying,
«I’d like to have that one back.»
I can almost see her standing there, tears rollin’ down her face.
As she packed away her memories in that old worn out suitcase.
If I’d only known then what I know now, I’d never opened that door.
Oh they just don’t make hearts like hers anymore.
[Chorus:]
I’d like to have that one back, I’ve never known someone so true.
And a love so pure and sweet is what a man should never lose.
And if my lips had said, «I’m sorry»,
She might have stopped right in her tracks.
I wouldn’t hear my poor heart saying,
«I’d like to have that one back.»
I wouldn’t hear my poor heart saying,
«I’d like to have that one back.»
