Charley Pride - I'm So Afraid of Losing You Again  Lyrics

 

Sometimes I want to throw my arms around you

Then I tremble at the thought of giving in

Because I know how much it cost to love you

And I'm so afraid of losing you again

 

Being close to you revives the sorrow

That wakes me up and tells me I can't win

I'd love to wake up in your arms tomorrow

But I'm so afraid of losing you again

 

If heaven were to hear my heart's confession

Wanting you would be my greatest sin

But I'm glad that you're no longer my possession

Cause I'm so afraid of losing you again

 

Being close to you revives the sorrow

That wakes me up and tells me I can't win

I'd love to wake up in your arms tomorrow

But I'm so afraid of losing you again

 

Being close to you revives the sorrow

That wakes me up and tells me I can't win

I'd love to wake up in your arms tomorrow

But I'm so afraid of losing you again

But I'm so afraid of losing you again....
