You're Gonna Die Alone!
© mai prosser 2005

1.)
So now you’ve left another
Fallen out of love once more
Always on the lookout, for the
New one you’ll adore.
To you the grass is greener
No matter where you look
But she won’t know you’re fickle
‘Til after she’s been hooked.

CH.)
You're Gonna Die Alone
With no one to hold your hand!
You're Gonna Die Alone,
And when you do, you'll understand!
When you kiss the world good bye,
With a heart that's just a stone!
There'll be no one to cry!
You're Gonna Die Alone!

2.)
When you said you loved her
You’d left many gals behind
She thought she was your heart
The one and only on your mind
No one will ever be enough
To keep you happy and at home;
Then she saw, just like the others,
You had this need to roam

CH.)
You're Gonna Die Alone
With no one to hold your hand!
You're Gonna Die Alone,
And when you do, you'll understand!
When you kiss the world good bye,
With a heart that's just a stone!
There'll be no one to cry!
You're Gonna Die Alone!

3.)
You can’t stay young forever
Though you might think it's true
Maybe that’s why you upgrade
Every year or two.
Your inner child is running wild
'Though your hair is turning gray
When boredom overcomes you
There’s another love who’ll pay.

CH.)
You're Gonna Die Alone
With no one to hold your hand!
You're Gonna Die Alone,
And when you do, you'll understand!
When you kiss the world good bye,
With a heart that's just a stone!
There'll be no one to cry!
You're Gonna Die Alone!

Mai,

I like this song, it may be a little bit on the bitter side, but not nearly as vengeful as Sarah Evans new one "Cheating".

Dave


P.S. Welcome to the forum.

Thank you Dave, for the welcome and the crit.

It is meant to state the singer's knowledge of "men like him" without her sitting and weeping all over the joint.

Another good one here, Mai.  I like the way you write.  OK, one question, is your name an acronym or aka.  You have my curiosity up.  Mai is an Asian name but you sure don't write like you are Asian.  I would say more in the way of a redneck woman, sort of like Gretchen Wilson or our gal Crystal.  You don't have to reveal your secret, but I always wonder about names. lol.

Thank you Kathy,

I'm glad you like.

Yes, I grew up on traditional country, so write in that vein, no  matter the topic. I don't have access to a country Radio Station so haven't heard Sarah's song! I must check it out somehow! So this also puts me at a disadvantage to knowing what is currently popular!
