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

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
