When you're falling fast for someone but you know it just ain't right
And will it's true but all we seem to do is fuss and fight
And woe some love is all that seems to get you through the night
You'll find your mind is achin' all the time, all the time
You'll find your mind is achin' all the time

I heard it said in order to receive one must give
So in my heart I always did believe that's how I lived
You came along and proved it wrong, time and time again
I find my mind is achin' all the time, all the time
I find my mind is achin' all the time

If you give your heart to one that don't know promise from pretend
You don't need your ma' to tell you how this story ends
She'll be fine and he'll be crying himself to sleep again
I find my mind is achin' all the time, all the time
I find my mind is achin' all the time

I find my mind is achin' all the time, all the time
I find my mind is achin' all the time

I love the music on RP and always appreciate the positive comments and stories that folks share, and love exposure to new (to me) regardless of the 'when' the music as created.
But also have to come to love the images / photographs that go along with each piece of music, yet never see a comment on those . . .
My best wishes and deepest gratitude to Bill and Rebecca for all that you do!!
Honey in the heart, 13 thank yous, Long Life!

What I hear in the closing lines is "his mind is aching all the time" not "my mind is aching all the time". It matters.
The arrangement sounds like a lost Rick Nelson tune!

Raycharles's happy place is a sad place; you don`t want to hear about his sad place.

This song was recorded live in the iTunes Studio, along with 3 others (I think it's 3), however the version I have is obviously a studio recording and doesn't sound "live" the way this one does.  Either version is great.

Can't wait to see Ray again in April - we have tickets to the St. Louis show and the Louisville show!

We've seen Lucinda find her happy place—and the music wasn't as good. :-)

This is wonderful.
Awesome!  This is not on my version of the album :(
