Enjoy this vintage clip of country music icon Patsy Cline performing "I Fall To Pieces" live on television shortly before her death.

Country music legend Patsy Cline may have lived a short life, but her influence is still very much felt within the music industry. She had a bold, unique voice that changed the way country music was perceived in pop culture. Cline successfully made the crossover to pop music and was one of the first of her time to do so.

“I Fall To Pieces” was Cline’s first number-one hit on the Country charts, and her second song to cross over onto the pop charts. The track was released in 1961 and was originally presented by songwriters Hank Cochran and Harlan Howard to Brenda Lee. Lee turned down the song, citing that it was too country sounding for her pop style.

Cline eventually found her way to the song— and the rest is history.

“I Fall To Pieces” Lyrics

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
