My Sweet Love is Hard on My Health

My sweet love has roamed
Oh, so far from home
It’s not the first time
That she’s left me alone
And only one night
Did I let myself cry
And now as I sit here
I ask myself why?
All of those tears
Held back all of those years
I held back all the pain
That’s what’s crushin’ me
You’ve been hard
Much too hard
On my health

Flyin’, flyin’, sailin’ down the highway
Runnin’ all out full bore – on cruise control
Cruisin’ all out full bore – outta control
The highway she travelled to leave me behind
Her memory – a torturous route through my mind
As she’s flyin’, flyin’ and sailin’
Through my memory

My sweet love’s still roamin’
Around in my mind
It’s not the first time
That she’s left me behind
It’s not the first time
Sweet love’s made me cry
Now tossin’ and turnin’
I ask myself why?
Just two rounds of tears
Over twenty-five years
I held back all that pain
Now it’s crushed me again
You’ve been hard
Much too hard
On my health

My sweet love is hard on my health
As I toss and I turn and I cry to myself
My sweet love you are so hard on me
As you’re flyin’, flyin’ and sailin’,
Through my memory

Hi Duke.. you've got yourself a pretty cool 'hook' here.. original. I play piano so I'm taking this as not just a pleasure of a read but a bit of an assignment.. interesting write.. hope your heart is mended though. katy.

I really like the lyrics, I'm going to try to get the melody from my piano keyboard! Thanks for putting the chords!
