Gram Parsons

Well I used to be the kind of guy that didn't love a lot

I took all the love they offered me with ease

And it didn't make much difference if they loved me or not

'Cause I'd love them for a while then I'd leave

Yeah and I can't believe it's thrilling me, hurting like I do

Just because you've left me all alone

I've seen it happpen many times

To other guys I knew

Surely I must be somebody else you've known

Well when I first met you, darling

You impressed me more than some

I should have take the warning way back then

But I never stopped to think that,

That even my day had to come

And like the other guys

That I'd want you back again

Yeah and I can't believe...
