Merle Haggard – Always Wanting You Lyrics

Always wanting you, but never having you
Makes it hard to face tomorrow ’cause I
Know I’ll be 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 saw 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 wanting you, but never having you
Sometimes hurts me almost more than I can stand
