Hank Thompson Paying Off The Interest With My Tears Lyrics

Last updated: 11/26/2007 10:00:00 AM

You said that you'd be mine and we signed that dotted line
I thought that we'd be happy you and me
If I had only known your love was just a loan
For now you're asking me to set you free

I never thought your kisses were like a charge account
That I'd have to pay in heartaches for taking my amount
I'll give you back your love that I've had all these years
But I'm paying off the interest with my tears

It's the expiration date you say there's no rebate
And I guess you'll say my heart is overdrawn
Another love you chose so my account is closed
And now I'll have an empty heart to pawn

My credit's discontinued you say there's someone new
To take over all the payments on a heart that's overdue
I'll give you back your love that I've had all these years
But I'm paying off the interest with my tears
[ fiddle - steel ]
I didn't understand your easy payment plan
That I would only have you for a while
The love contract we wrote was a just short-term note
You placed my name on your inactive file

I never thought your kisses...
