Jim Reeves – Before I Died lyrics

No need to say you're sorry no need to feel ashamed
If I'm not the one you love don't feel you're to blame
I don't deny it hurts me and this pain is hard to hide
But at least I lived a little while before I died
I lived long enough to know the sweet thrill of your lips
I knew happiness right down to my fingertips
You'll always be a part of me though you can't be mine
At least I lived a little while before I died
[ steel ]
Don't ask me to forget you cause you mean too much to me
I couldn't even if I tried too many memories
My yesterdays were happy days and each memory's locked inside
At least I lived a little while before I died
I lived long enough to know...
