MORE DEAD THAN ALIVE

[Verse]  

When it's over it's over, 

unless you come back over

and start it up again, 

kissing on my shoulder.

But you lie to my face    

every time you ask to stay. 

Now I'm dying  

without a grave. 

  

[Chorus]  

You left me   

more dead than alive. 

 You held me 

then grabbed your knife. 

I wish, I wish 

I'd forget those nights. 

But how can I forget 

what felt so right? 

 

[Verse]  

Forgiveness is an excuse  

you like to abuse.  

I said it would be okay  

if you just told the truth.  

But you lie to my face  

every time you turn away.  

Now I'm dying  

without a grave. 

 

[Chorus]  

You left me   

more dead than alive. 

 You held me 

then grabbed your knife. 

I wish, I wish 

I'd forget those nights. 

But how can I forget 

what felt so right?

 

[Verse]  

Every night in your room 

I was studying you 

talk with a mouth 

that was faster than you. 

You lied to my face  

every time you said my name.  

Now I'm dying  

without a grave. 

  

[Chorus]  

You left me   

more dead than alive. 

 You held me 

then grabbed your knife. 

I wish, I wish 

I'd forget those nights. 

But how can I forget 

what felt so right? 

  

[Bridge] 

You painted your name  

on my hand 

then fastened your pain 

around my neck. 

But I kept asking 

for more and more. 

You showed up drunk 

and I opened the door. 

  

[Chorus]  

You left me   

more dead than alive. 

 You held me 

then grabbed your knife. 

I wish, I wish 

I'd forget those nights. 

But how can I forget 

what felt so right?
