"Careless Heart" as written by Roy Orbison, Diane Warren and Albert Hammond....
I had somebody, somebody who loved me
Someone so good to me
You were my angel, you were my heaven
But I was too blind to see
I let you slip away, I guess I never knew
I had the world with you
I'd be there, still be there in your arms

[chorus]
If not for my careless heart
You'd still be loving me
If not for my careless heart
You'd still be mine
I wouldn't have this hurt inside
I wouldn't have these tears to cry
If not for my careless heart
If not for my careless heart

I had my chances
I took advantage
I took it all too far
So now you're gone and I'm all alone
Alone with my lonely heart
I let it fall apart, I didn't care enough
I lost your precious love
You'd be here, still be here in my arms

[Chorus]

I'd be loving you, I'd be holding you
I'd be loving you, if not for my
Careless heart

I wouldn't have this hurt inside
I wouldn't have these tears to cry

[Chorus]
