(as recorded by jim reeves, november 21, 1961)

I fall to pieces
Each time I see you again
I fall to pieces
How can I be just your friend

You want me to act like weve never kissed
You want me to forget, pretend weve never met
And Ive tried and Ive tried but I haven't yet
You walk by, and I fall to pieces


I fall to pieces
Each time someone speaks your name
I fall to pieces
Time only adds to the flame

You tell me to find someone else to love
Someone wholl love me, too, the way you used to do
But each time I go out with someone new
You walk by and I fall to pieces

(I fall to pieces)
Each time someone speaks your name
(I fall to pieces)
Time only adds to the flame

You tell me to find someone else to love
Someone wholl love me too, the way you used to do
But each time I go out with someone new
You walk by and I fall to pieces

*patsy cline did not repeat the last two verses.

    Patsy had a bad breakup so she can not forget that person because she still loves and will not forget. So if someone speaks that persons name then she falls to pieces every time she hears that name. It happened to me once I loved someone but then they had a gf so I decided to find someone else but then they had a gf so I went to another person and we've been dating for 2 years but now I am starting to fall for someone else.
