How Come You’re Not Dead Yet?


 BACK TO LYRICS

 

Song from A PLACE TO CALL HOME album, 1995

 

I throught I´d sit right down
And write this song for you
I think you never understood my point of view
You came into my life, a smell of summer wine
Poisoned up my blood and left me behind

Mysterious, you were so unpredictable
Charming ways were always so believable
Circumstances made it all come shining through
To tell the truth was not what you intended to

You could not live without me you said
So baby, how come youre not dead yet?

Everything you said to me about being true
Now I realize that words don´t mean that much to you
I can´t believe you wasted all this time on me
Showered me with promises and poetry

You could not live without me you said
So baby, how come you´re not dead yet?

People come and people go
We hurt each other
This I know
But it´s not that simple
When the hour is late
Baby don´t go

I see you walking by but I don´t feel a thing
Funny how I thought that we were everyghing
Someone else will now be falling for that smile
I´m proud to say that I´m no longer worth your while

You could not live without me you said
You could not live without me you said
But baby, how come you´re not dead yet?
