Dead Man Running

lyrics

You can’t believe I can’t believe you’re gone
You lost me to the music, I lost you when you moved along
Different people want different things out of their lives
And you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be drunk when you see me next time

All I really want is everything I want and for this suffering to stop
But I can’t stuff you in my pocket and take you places you won’t go
But I need the things I need, whatever they might be
I’ve got no handle on my life
I’m like a dead man running lost and I can’t slow down

I wake up soaking wet from being out in the rain
All this drinking and forgetting going poorly together again
‘Cause the morning light reminds me of your eyes
All I got’s this headache for my heartache and a sick and empty feeling inside

All I really want is everything I want and for this suffering to stop
But I can’t stuff you in my pocket and take you places you won’t go
But I need the things I need, whatever they might be
I’ve got no handle on my life
I’m like a dead man running scared and I can’t slow down

Please…I’m a dead man running lost
Please…I can’t turn it off

All I really want is everything I want and for this suffering to stop
But I can’t stuff you in my pocket and take you places you won’t go
But I need the things I need, whatever they might be
I’ve got no handle on my life
I’m just a dead man running ’round and I can’t slow down
