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
Id be there, still be there in your arms

If not for my careless heart
Youd still be loving me
If not for my careless heart
Youd still be mine

I wouldnt have this hurt inside
I wouldnt 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 youre gone
And Im all alone
Alone with my lonely heart

I let it fall apart
I didnt care enough
I lost your precious love
Youd be here still be here in my arms

If not for my careless heart
Youd still be loving me
If not for my careless heart
Youd still be mine

I wouldnt have this hurt inside
I wouldnt have these tears to cry
If not for my careless heart
If not for my careless heart
Youd still be mine

Id be loving you
I'd be holding you
Id be loving you
If not for my careless heart

I wouldnt have this hurt inside
I wouldnt have these tears to cry
If not for my careless heart
If not for my careless heart

If not for my careless heart
Youd still be loving me
If not for my careless heart
Youd still be mine

I wouldnt have this hurt inside
I wouldnt have these tears to cry
If not for my careless heart
If not for my careless heart

If not for my careless heart
Youd still be loving me
Youd be loving me
Youd still be mine

If not for my careless heart
Youd still be mine
I wouldnt have this hurt inside
I wouldnt have these tears to cry
