    Lyrics

    When you were a cowboy on the plain
    You stole my heart away
    I'm writing you to say that
    You were my original hero

    My fabulous prince and my lover
    You had the right answer to the riddle
    But the years went by
    And finally I left you for another
    Saying this is love

    I'm sorry for the pain I caused you
    I was a crazy girl in those days
    But I have been burned
    And, darling, I've learned
    That lovin' and leavin' don't pay

    You were just the first of many men
    I thought you would set me free
    I took what I could
    Made you a promise
    That you wouldn't bind me

    Then I would see a new smile
    See the future bright and shining
    I turned and tossed
    In a sea so deep no one could find me
    Saying this must be love

    I'm sorry for the pain I caused you
    I was a crazy girl in those days
    And I have been burned
    And, darling, I've learned
    That lovin' and leavin' don't pay

    Finally a man came along
    I gave him all I had
    I would have gone
    To the end of the Earth for him
    If he'd asked me

    He only turned on his heel
    And walked back the way he came
    All all of my tears
    And the pieces of my heart
    Couldn't turn him around

    Maybe I've paid the price
    For breaking all those hearts
    Maybe my dice will come up this time
    With a lover that's really mine

    So can you say you forgive
    The girl you used to love
    I've played the stakes high
    And I've paid for my crimes
    In the name of love

    I'm sorry for the pain I caused you
    I was a crazy girl in those days
    But I have been burned
    And, darling, I've learned
    That lovin' and leavin' don't pay
