Joey Tempest – How Come You're Not Dead Yet? lyrics

I throught Iґd sit right down
And write this song for you
I think you never understood my point of view
You came into my life, a smell of summer wine
Poisoned up my blood and left me behind

Mysterious, you were so unpredictable
Charming ways were always so believable
Circumstances made it all come shining through
To tell the truth was not what you intended to

You could not live without me you said
So baby, how come you're not dead yet?

Everything you said to me about being true
Now I realize that words donґt mean that much to you
I canґt believe you wasted all this time on me
Showered me with promises and poetry

You could not live without me you said
So baby, how come youґre not dead yet?

People come and people go
We hurt each other
This I know
But itґs not that simple
When the hour is late
Baby donґt go

I see you walking by but I donґt feel a thing
Funny how I thought that we were everyghing
Someone else will now be falling for that smile
Iґm proud to say that Iґm no longer worth your while

You could not live without me you said
You could not live without me you said
But baby, how come youґre not dead yet?
