Conley, Earl Thomas - Your Love's On The Line Lyrics

You've never cheated, you've never lied
You've never had feelin's that you've had to hide
For she's got you thinkin' of somethin' so different tonight
It's too late to worry what's right or what's wrong
And you're a little too crazy to leave it alone
When you're lookin' at somethin' that's too good to push it aside

Boy, she's got your head in the clouds
And your heart in a bind
How come you're feelin' so proud
When your love's on the line?

You still think your 1st love's the best in your life
When you know you should hurry, but you can't say goodbye
And you know you can't go back and feel like you're where you belong
Now the sweet taste of freedom is hard to control
When the touch of a woman's so tender to hold
She won't even let you remember how long you've been gone

Boy, you've got your head in the clouds
And your heart in a bind
So how come you're feelin' so proud
When your love's on the line?

Boy, you've got your head in the clouds
And your heart in a bind
So how come you're feelin' so proud
When your love's on the line?

  7. GeorgiaBoy1961

    It was very sad to hear of the death of Earl Thomas Conley, a criminally-underrated singer, songwriter and musician. At his peak and performing his best songs, there was no one better.

  8. David La Faber

    One of the BEST that ever was! Rest In Peace ETC... 🎸🕴️

  45. Alice Fleming

    Love His Voice.

  46. Wendy Robins

    Is he married????

    Wendy Robins

    @doris ritchie he has a ring on is left hand

    KGS 1925

    He was living with a long time lady companion when he passed away.

    KIm B

    Yes, he was married and had two children. I’m not sure if he was still married to her when he passed. She was mentioned in this article back in the late 90’s.

    Anna Weidner

    Wendy Robins he said he loved his wife more after she died

    Kayte 0207

    He was not married when he died. He and his first wife had two children before divorcing. Then he had two children with Carol Scates, who he lived with for over 20 years, but never married. He was still with Carol Scates at the time of his death.

  47. Leblon56 mardini

    this reminds me how good country was back then. Nothing like the trash we have today

    Keith Clark

    Straight up

  48. Brian Hill

    Such a great song.. He does such a wonderful job on it. Whoever wrote it, lived it.

    Kyle Dykes

    He wrote it. He wrote almost all, if not all of his songs.

  49. Michael Laman

    incredible performer--never got the recognition he deserved

    Wade Randall

    Yes and that is a shame

    H. Snider



    Isn't 21 straight top ten hits considered recognition?

    Kyle Dykes

    @Fruehauf8090 No. It's success. He never got the recognition from the industry like her should have. King George couldn't touch him in the 80s

  50. Pamela Knowles


  51. Roberta Brayton

    Love his music forever!!!

    Richard Charney

    You got that right!

  52. raulantonio65
