The phone’s too quiet and the bed’s too wide
Your friends deny it,  they’re all on your side
Now I can’t dig a hole deep enough to hide
I’ve been a dead man since you took that ride

My car’s dead and my clothes fit wrong
My day’s are restless and the night’s so long
I don’t see movies and I can’t hear songs
‘Cause I’ve been a dead man since you’ve been gone
I’ve been a dead man

A dead man talkin’ about love is like a prisoner talkin’ about the free
You’ve been talkin’ about love, but you ain’t been talkin’ about me
No you ain’t been talkin’ about me

I do all my swimming at the Rose and Crown
‘Cause it takes a lot of bad whiskey to drown
And a thousand women couldn’t anchor me now
I’ve been a dead man since you left this town

A dead man talkin’ about love is like a soldier talkin’ about peace
You keep talkin’ about love, but that name ain’t familiar to me
No his name ain’t familiar to me

I can rest peaceful I can lay my head down
As long as I’m sure, my sweet, you’re safe and sound
Now I can quit being a ghost haunting this town
It’s o.k. to be the dead man now
