How Come I Ain't Dead Lyrics

Artist: Tim O'Brien
Album: When No One's Around

I begged her not to go, said I could not live without her
She said don't be dramatic, you'll survive
She drove away, the sky turned gray
I cried all night about her
I'm still breathin' but her leavin' hurts more
Each day I'm alive

If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead
Six feet down in the cold, cold ground
With a stone above my head
But somethin's wrong 'cause now she's gone
And I live on instead
If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead

I wake up every mornin' scared to open up my eyes
Don't know if I'll be there in the mirror
But there I am, a broken man
I look somewhat surprised
I'm grateful for another day
But amazed that I'm still here

If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead
Six feet down in the cold, cold ground
With a stone above my head
But somethin's wrong 'cause now she's gone
And I live on instead
If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead

Saint Peter's waitin' for me outside the pearly gates
But I'm waitin' on the angel band, I guess they're runnin' late

If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead
Six feet down in the cold, cold ground
With a stone above my head
But somethin's wrong 'cause now she's gone
And I live on instead
If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead
