8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
You said you loved me just as I loved you,
And I believed it all;
I never dreamt your words would prove untrue,
I was a fool to fall. You brought me....
Heartaches, Heartaches,
My loving you meant only Heartaches
Your kiss was such a sacred thing to me,
I can't believe it's just a burning memory.
Heartaches, Heartaches,
What does it matter how my heart breaks?
I should be happy with someone new,
But my heart aches for you.
