“You Always Hurt The One You Love” is one of the saddest songs ever created. With its lyrics saying

“You always hurt the one you love, the one you shouldn’t hurt at all,”

“You always break the kindest heart with a hasty word you can’t recall.”

Indeed, it is painful. Despite the words and lyrics, the song is still relaxing as it gives a mellow sound. Perhaps, you’ll forget what the song means if you focus on the soothing voices of Willie Nelson and Brenda Lee.

The Song…

The Lyrics…

You always hurt the one you love, the one you shouldn’t hurt at all

Always take the sweetest rose and crash it till the petals fall

You always break the kindest heart with a hasty word you can’t recall

So if I broke your heart last night it’s because I love you most of all

And you always break the kindest heart…
