“Before My World Caves In”
Written by Fred C. Billy
MACON, GEORGIA

Give me one more day before my world caves in.
Just one more night before the pain sets in.
Tomorrow we’ll walk away; I hope we’ll still be friends.
Give me one more day before my world caves in.

Everyone who knew us said we were the perfect pair.
I took your love for granted, assumed you’d always be there.
So busy making a living, I forgot to make a life.
And now you’re going to be someone else’s wife.

Give me one more day before my world caves in.
Just one more night before it all comes crashing in.
Tomorrow we’ll walk away, from all that should’ve been.
Give me one more day before my world caves in.

Two strangers in a house, with the same last name.
Love was the loser, as we chased the American dream.
The only thing we did together was to grow apart.
And the last thing we did was break each others hearts.

Give me one more day before my world caves in.
Just one more night before it all comes to an end.
We’ll walk out our front door never to come again.
Give me one more day before my world caves in.

I wasn’t caught up in a back street love affair.
I’d never cheat on you, for I knew that wasn’t fair.
My heart grew so cold, I forgot how to care.
I turned our great love story, into our worst nightmare.

Give me one more day before my world caves in.
Just one more night before the pain sets in.
Tomorrow we’ll walk away; I hope we’ll still be friends.
Give me one more day before my world caves in.
