If heartaches brought fame, in love's crazy game
I'd be a legend in my time
If they gave gold statuettes for tears and regrets
I'd be a legend in my time

But they don't give awards and there's no praise or fame
For hearts that are broken for love that's in vain

If loneliness meant world acclaim
Everyone would know my name
I'd be a legend in my time

If heartaches brought fame, in love's crazy game
I'd be a legend in my time
If they gave gold statuettes for tears and regrets
I'd be a legend in my time

But they don't give awards and there's no praise or fame
For hearts that are broken for love that's in vain

If loneliness meant world acclaim
Everyone would know my name
I'd be a legend in my time
