John Wesley Harding – Long Dead Gone lyrics

It's so easly to forgo, so hard to forget
So hard for to realise that I'm not dead yet
When everything that we wanted is beyond beyond
And all that I hoped for is long dead gone

So how can I sleep in this memory bed
Where I feel like a grave with a tomb for a bedhead
With your name and my name carved deep in the stone
Now faded away cos we're long dead gone


We're long dead gone, long dead gone
Now faded away because we're long dead gone


And love lies bewildered, checking it's pulse
To see if it compares to anything else
And two things still beating, but never as one
And one thing lies choking cos it's long dead gone


So here rests in pieces
Whatever it was that we could admit to
Whatever it was that was me and you


So why won't I just let it die and get rid
Of the truth that we both would've rather kept hid
Better to live a lie than pretend that you're not
And to live out a love that is long dead gone


It's long dead gone, long dead gone
Don't live out a love which is long dead gone
Never live out a love that is long dead gone
Don't live out a love which is long dead gone
