"I Fall to Pieces" as written by Hank Cochran and Harlan Howard....
I fall to pieces
Each time I see you again
I fall to pieces
How can I be just your friend?

You want me to act like we've never kissed
You want me to forget (to forget)
Pretend we've never met (never met)

And I've tried and I've tried
But I haven't yet
You walk by and I fall to pieces

I fall to pieces
Each time someone speaks your name (speaks your name)
I fall to pieces
Time only adds to the flame

You tell me to find someone else to love
Someone who love me too (love me too)
The way you used to do (used to do)
But each time I go out with someone new
You walk by and I fall to pieces
You walk by and I fall to pieces

    General Commentwhy hasn't anyone commented? anyway, this is one of her best songs. so sad and haunting, about not being able to forget about an ex basically, right after you broke up, seems like the ex cheated or didnt really love her.

    General Commentsucks for her, she keeps trying to forget the guy, but he walks by, and she has to start all over again. At least she's trying.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about unrequited love.

    I fall to pieces
    Each time I see you again
    I fall to pieces
    How can I be just your friend

    She's heartbroken everytime she sees him so her wound opens up. He probably told her "Let's be friends, we're not good as lovers". Hinting that maybe they gave it a try and it didn't work out for him.

    You want me to act like we've never kissed
    You want me to forget, pretend we've never met
    And I've tried and I've tried but I haven't yet
    You walk by, and I fall to pieces

    Again hinting at the fact that they had a "romance" once probably not a relationship but assuming she thought it was going to be one.

    You tell me to find someone else to love
    Someone who'll love me, too, the way you used to do
    But each time I go out with someone new
    You walk by and I fall to pieces

    He wants her to occupy her thoughts elsewhere and on someone else. He may have just told her he loved her because that's what she wanted to hear.

    Like I said unrequited love.
