The Script – Dead Man Walking lyrics

(I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man walking walking walking
I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man)
(-repeat-)

I see you standing there but you're already gone
I'm holding your hand but you're barely holding on
I'm kissin your lips but it just don't feel the same
Am I dead man now, left living with the blame

Oh I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man walking walking walking

Already broken, already gone, already know you're moving on
I'm a breathing, talking, dead man, walking
Already see it, in your face, already someone, in my place
I'm a breathing, talking, dead man, walking

I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man walking walking walking
I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man

We're in the same room just one million miles away
With all these books around but we ain't go two words to say
Am I a dead man now, left living with the shame?

I'm... Already broken, already gone, already know you're moving on
I'm a breathing, talking, dead man walking
Already see it, in your face already someone, in my place
I'm a breathing, talking, dead man walking yeah
I'm a breathing, talking dead man walking

I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man walking walking walking
I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man

I'm already broken, already gone already know you're moving on
I'm a breathing, talking dead man walking
Already see it, in your face, already someone in my place
I'm a breathing, talking dead man walking

I'm a breathing, talking dead man walking

    He has made a mistake. Their relationship ended. He thought she was moving on. But later she mustve given him another chance. But everything has changed after that course of their relationship. Its not the same. He feels the difference when he holds her hand cause she has changed due to the pain and doesn't reciprocate the same way. The kisses don't feeel the same as the spark between them is gone now. He is left with the guilt and blame which kills him from inside and makes him feel just like a dead man walking.
    Relating it to my breakup. Loved the song when I heard it first.

    I think the song means that someone was loved and who he loved didnot love him back so it broke his heart and he fells dead inside so that is why the song refers to "i'm a dead man walking" alsowhen it says "i hear the angles talking" I think that means that he is thinking about dying and going tothe angles. There is no right or wrong answer though.
