Before I Died

This song is by Jim Reeves and appears on the album Good 'N' Country (1963).

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 finger tips.

You'll always be a part of me
Though you can't be mine
At least I lived a little while
Before I died.

--- Instrumental ---

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 yesterday's were happy days
And each mem'ry's locked inside
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 finger tips.

You'll always be a part of me
And though you can't be mine
At least I lived a little while
Before I died...
