Better off Dead Lyrics

Artist: Randy Newman
Album: Bad Love

Musically, this one has a sort of overblown, heavenly quality to it. But lyrically, it's another story of a guy getting himself into a bad relationship that he can't get out of. He says, "When you fall in love with someone who doesn't love you/ Someone who treats you so badly it ramifies your head/ Someone who doesn't want you but won't let you go/ Someone who thinks you're crazy and tells you so, over and over and over/ If this happens to you, you're better off dead." It's exaggerated, but there's a kernel of truth there for so many people. You don't know what bad is until you feel that. I know what I'm talking about because I was once a woman who loved too much.

I know some critic is going to think I don't know what the word ramify means, or how to use it. made up an alternate verb form of it here, like a made-up R&B word, like the "puppetudes" of love. wanted to say how there would be ramifications from something that happens to your head in this kind of a relationship. I should've said "blamifies" or something to make it really obvious I was playing with the word, but I just didn't give a fuck.
