we all walk the long road that is life but someday we all must go home. luckily we don´t have to walk alone... Yes, I understand that every life must end, As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, Oh I'm a lucky man, to count on both hands the ones I love Some folks just have one, yeah, others, they've got none Stay with me... Let's just breathe... Practiced all my sins, never gonna let me win, Under everything, just another human being, I don't wanna hurt, there's so much in this world to make me bleed Stay with me You're all I see... Did I say that I need you? Did I say that I want you? Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see No one knows this more than me As I come clean... I wonder everyday, as I look upon your face, Everything you gave And nothing you would save, oh no Nothing you would take Everything you gave... Did I say that I need you? Oh, did I say that I want you? Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see No one knows this more than me And I come clean, ah... Nothing you would take Everything you gave Hold me til I die Meet you on the other side... music and lyrics by pearl jam

We all have heard of famous couples such as Romeo and Juliet, Laila and Majnu, and Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler, and their famous love stories. But Fakeeradas and Radhika from Lakhimpur Kheri became legends by living and dying together after almost 100 years of marriage.

Fakeeradas and Radhika, who got married in their early 20s, died due to a heart attack at the age of 107 and 103, respectively, reported Etv Uttar Pradesh.

The villagers say that when Radhika died of a heart attack, Fakeeradas couldn't bear the loss of his wife, and passed away within a couple of hours.

"Neither of them would eat dinner without each other. In fact, they would always wait for each other," one of the villagers told Etv UP. "In fact, they always said that they wanted to die together," he added.

The couple had no children.
