If I Should Die ~ Luyanda Buthelezi

IF I SHOULD DIE, THINK ONLY THIS OF ME
IF I SHOULD DIE,
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I LOVED
EVEN THOUGH WE DIDN’T SPEND MUCH TIME TOGETHER

IF I SHOULD DIE,
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I CARED
EVEN THOUGH WE DIDN’T SEE EYE TO EYE

IF I SHOULD DIE,
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THE LOVE I HAD
FOR YOU WAS IMMORTAL
NOT EVEN HERCULES COULD BE ABLE TO BREAK US UP

IF I SHOULD DIE,
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU
WERE THE SOURCE OF MY HAPPINESS
IF I SHOULD DIE, THINK ONLY THIS OF ME.
