Oh, if I should die tonight
Oh baby, though would be far before my time
I won't die blue, sugar, yeah
'Cause I've known you

Oh, oh, how many eyes
Have seen their dream?
Oh, how many arms
Have felt their dream?
How many hearts, baby
Have felt their world stand still?

Oh, millions never, they never, never
And millions never will, baby
They never will

If I should die tonight love
Darlin', it would be far before my time
I won't die blue
'Cause I've known you

I'm so grateful baby, grateful that you're lovin' me
My desire
Is to love you 'til
I'm no longer here and never tire
You always been so good to me, me now
I'm so thankful

Oh, oh, how many eyes
Have seen their dream?
How many arms
Have felt their dream?
How many hearts, oh darlin'
Have felt their world stand still? Oh Lord

Oh, millions never, no, never, never
And millions never will, sugar
They never will

If I should die tonight, ah baby
I just want you to keep this one thought in mind
That I would never die blue
'Cause I've known you, oh
