I Die A Thousand Times
Lyrics and Music by Steven Beasley
Copyright © Rio Paso Music (BMI)

With B3 plaintively wailing as soundtrack, there's nothing like bumping into an old lover, that you still love, with her new lover, to make you want to die.

Here they come, walking down the street.
He's such a lucky guy.
Oh, and her smile is still as sweet.
And her eyes could still light a million skies.
Now they've seen me and I can't just duck away
Like some vandal in the night.
Oh, there must be something I can say
To make them think everything's alright.

I DIE A THOUSAND TIMES
For her love once was mine.
I smile but deep inside
I DIE A THOUSAND TIMES

Sure enough, he goes to shake my hand,
And so I do the same.
Oh, I'm just a shadow of the man
Who stood so proud and would not share the blame.
It is she who deals the final blow, without intending to.
She did it all with just a casual hello,
And touched my arm the way she used to do.

I DIE A THOUSAND TIMES
But I've got to walk that line.
They'll never see me cry, but
I DIE A THOUSAND TIMES

I DIE A THOUSAND TIMES
For her love once was mine.
I smile but deep inside
I DIE A THOUSAND TIMES
I DIE A THOUSAND TIMES
I DIE A THOUSAND TIMES
