"This Old Heart Of Mine" as written by Sylvia Moy, Edward Holland, Brian Holland and Lamont Herbert Dozier....
This old heart of mine been broke a thousand times.
Each time you break away, I fear you've gone to stay.
Lonely nights that come, memories that flow, bringing you back again,
Hurting me more and more.

Maybe it's my mistake to show this love I feel inside;
'Cause each day that passes by you got me
Never knowing if I'm coming or going, but I, I love you.
This old heart darling, is weak for you.
I love you, yes, I do.
These old arms of mine miss having you around;
Makes these tears inside start a-falling down.

Maybe it's my mistake to show this love I feel inside;
'Cause each day that passes by you got me
Never knowing if I'm coming or going, but I, I love you.
This old heart darling, is weak for you.
I love you, yes, I do. Yes, I do.

I try hard to hide my hurt inside.
This old heart of mine always keeps me cryin'
I try hard to hide my hurt inside
This old heart of mine always keeps me cryin' the way you treat me,
Leaves me incomplete, you're here for the day, gone for the week, now
But if you leave me a hundred times
A hundred times I'll take you back.
I'm yours whenever you want me
I'm not too proud to shout it.
Tell the world about it 'cause I love you.
Yes I do. Yes, I do.
I love you. This old heart darling is weak for you.
I love you. This old heart darling is weak for you.
I love you. This old heart darling is weak for you.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite oldies. Very soulful and full of emotion.

    My InterpretationThis was the first lyric that helped me sort out the emotions of my first love. It explained to my mixed up teenage mind the complex situations of growing up and understanding that a girl can love you but still be curious, after all I was.

    The 'b' side to the single was There's No Love Left, this also helped me though a very low spot.
