She left me in the darkness, all alone
She abandoned all the good times
And the love I thought we had

I'm like a lonesome pallbearer, walking down the isle
Traveling to the graveyard, counting down the miles
With every earth filled shovel
They dig that eternal bed
I'm like a lonesome pallbearer
Carrying the dead
Carrying the dead

She don't call me, and she don't try to
And my friend can't bring her back
My eyes are wide open
Watching my future fade to black

I'm like a lonesome pallbearer, walking down the isle
Traveling to the graveyard, counting down the miles
With every earth filled shovel
They dig that eternal bed
I'm like a lonesome pallbearer
Carrying the dead
Carrying the dead

I've pondered trading places
With the man laying in that hearse
I tried to hold my head up
But her leaving, is like a curse

I'm like a lonesome pallbearer, walking down the isle
Traveling to the graveyard, counting down the miles
With every earth filled shovel
They dig that eternal bed
I'm like a lonesome pallbearer
Carrying the dead
Carrying the dead
Carrying the dead

    A man is so devastated that his woman left him, he says its like carrying the weight of a dead man on his shoulders, and even wishes he could be that person to get rid of the pain
