ifyouweredead150If You Were Dead  (Michele McTierney) (c)2007

If you were dead
Then I could grieve
If you were buried
I could still believe that you still loved me

With you deceased
It’d be a great relief
This concept doesn’t just work for me
Cuz dead men don’t feel guilty
Dead men don’t feel guilty (4x)

Verse 1
Looking down on your grassy grave
To the world, I’d look so brave
Despite your untimely demise
I’d find the will and strength to survive

With rose-colored memories
I could remember you  fondly
Death would give more finality
Than knowing that you’re living your life – without me
Without me (8x)

Verse 2
Accepting it’s over is harder for me
Than crying over your dead body
And the dearly departed
Are naturally cold-hearted

Nothing says closure
Than you six feet under
I’d rather have you rest in peace
Than knowing that you’re living your life – without me
Without me (8x)

Outro
No, No, they don’t (2x)
