Lyrics

Til the Day I Die

Copyright 2001
Dan Pelletier

You ask a simple question, “How long will my love last?”
Here’s a simple answer to make you sorry that you asked,

Chorus:
Til I fall right down and break my crown
Or I up and drown or they run me down
Til my time is through I will still love you
Til they put me six feet in the ground
Til I come to grievous bodily harm
And my red hot blood’s not even warm
I will still love you til my day is due
And my bucket’s kicked and I buy the farm
Til they lay those pennies on my eyes
And the neighbors gawk and my loved ones cry
Til my chips cashed in, I will be loving, you
Love you til the day I die

Now supposing there’s a plane crash, and supposing that I’m in it
And everybody on the plane dies, well I would love you, til that minute
And imagine there’s an archeologist, in about a million years time
He finds a body frozen in a glacier and that body happens to be mine
And using modern carbon dating he traces it back to the year 2059
April 3, 9:32 am, well I would have loved you til that time

Chorus:

Now picture Armageddon, the whole world is laid to waste
And every single soul upon it, reduced to a blackened, ashy, paste
There’s confusion everywhere, with no one knowing what is true,
Amidst the tears and screams and wailing, there would be me, loving you

Chorus:
Til I fall right down and break my crown
Or I up and drown or they run me down
Til my time is through I will still love you
Til they put me six feet in the ground
Til I come to grievous bodily harm
And my red hot blood’s not even warm
I will still love you til my day is due
And my bucket’s kicked and I buy the farm
Til the big chill, I’m roadkill, they stick me in a landfill
They shock me with the paddles but my heart is at a standstill
I’m nothing, nichts, nada, nyet, nunca, nowhere, niente, nil
You ask how long I’ll love and I tell you that I will until
They lay those pennies on my eyes
And the neighbors gawk and my loved ones cry
Til my chips cashed in, I will be loving, you
Love you til the day I die
