In 1964, Neil Sedaka had recorded this song but it was in a studio not run by his label, so they refused to release the song unless Sedaka re-recorded it in their studio, which he did. But when he wasn't satisfied with the result, the song was offered to Gene Pitney, who used the recorded track from Sedaka, and just sang the vocals. He ended up with a #7 hit song.

This Hurts To Be In Love Lyrics

It hurts to be in love, when the only one you love
Turns out to be someone who's not in love with you
It hurts to love her so - when deep down inside you know
She will never want you, no matter what you do

And so you cry a little bit (hurts to be in love)
Oh die a little bit (hurts to be in love)
Day and night, night and day - It hurts to be in love this way

How long can I exist? - Wanting lips I've never kissed
She gives all her kisses to somebody else
She thinks I'm just a friend - Though it hurts, I must pretend
The only way to keep her, is to keep it to myself

And so you cry a little bit (hurts to be in love)
Oh die a little bit (hurts to be in love)
Day and night, night and day - It hurts to be in love this way

And so you cry a little bit (hurts to be in love)
Oh die a little bit (hurts to be in love)
Day and night, night and day - It hurts to be in love this way

It hurts to be in love, day and night, night and day
It hurts to be in love, Night and day, day and night
It hurts to be in love, day and night, night and day
