Lyrics

IF I DIE FOREVER, LEIGH

Don’t you worry about me, my love, cuz I, I’ll be alright
I’m so touched you love me so much, ah, but I, I’ll be alright
These last few years or so, I couldn’t help but notice my
Lucky streak of keeping me alive
Besides that, I can’t wait to live another day
And wake up with you, Baby, by my side

If I Die I can’t kiss you in the morning
If I Die, I’ll never love you up at night
Baby, if I die, I can’t snuggle in your nestle
Or give you somethin’ special and make you cry…. If I Die

I’ll look both ways before I cross the street, I promise, I, I’ll be alright
I ain’t gonna take no candy from strangers in the park, No, Never! I, I’m gonna be alright
You won’t find underneath construction sites on city streets
Dodging hammers, hookers and the like
No, I’m gonna walk around it, cuz what I want, I’ve found it
I’ll meet you at the pillow, Baby, later on tonight

Cuz If I Die I won’t kiss you in the morning
If I Die, I’ll never love you up at night
Never, If I Die, I can’t make your morning coffee
Caress you ever softly, make you sigh…. If I Die

So don’t wait up for me, honey, tonight, cuz I’ll get home alright
I’ll tiptoe in and dark, I might stub my toe and yell, “Oh, fuck!” But I, I’ll be alright
I won’t come home all liquored up with drunk designs of giddy up
But do feel free to start me up yourself
I won’t be fresh off of doin’ lines and talkin’ till you lose your mind
And wanna hit me on the head with something heavy off the shelf

Cuz, If I Die I won’t kiss you in the morning
If I Die, I’ll never love you up at night
Forever, if I die, I can’t snuggle in your nestle
Or give you somethin’ special and make you cry…. If I Die
