  • Only love can break a heart
    Only love can mend it again

    Last night I hurt you but darlin' remember this
    Only love can break a heart
    Only love can mend it again, hmm, hmm
    You know I'm sorry, I'll prove it with just one kiss
    Only love can break a heart
    Only love can mend it again

    Give me a chance to make up for the harm I've done
    Try to forgive me and let's keep the two of us one

    Please let me hold you and love you for always and always
    Only love can break a heart, only love can mend it again
    Only love can break a heart, only love can mend it again Writer/s: Burt Bacharach, Hal David

  • Terry M from Tacoma Wa.What a great voice this man had. You need to find a compilation album of his hits to appreciate his talent.

    The week it peaked at #58, the record's A-side, "Only Love Can Break A Heart", was at #13 on the Top 100, and three weeks later it would peak at #2 {for 1 week}...
