Sturgill Simpson – The Dead Don't Die lyrics
[Verse 1]
Oh, the dead don't die
Anymore than you or I
They're just ghosts inside a dream
Of a life that we don't own
They walk around sometimes
Never payin' any mind
To the silly lives we lead
Or the reaping we've all sown

[Chorus]
There's a cup of coffee waiting on every corner
Someday we're gonna wake up and find the corner's gone
But the dead will still be walking 'round this ol' world alone
Oh, well after life is over the afterlife goes on

[Verse 2]
There'll be old friends walking 'round
In a somewhat-familiar town
That you saw once when you looked up from your phone
Nobody bothers saying "hi"
And you can save all your goodbyes
Stop trying to pretend that we're all not alone

[Chorus 2]
And the streets look so empty in the morning
There'll be no one out at night for the lights to shine down on
But the dead'll still be walking 'round in this old world alone
Oh, well after life is over the afterlife goes on

[Bridge]
Hearts break when loved ones journey on
At the thought that they're now forever gone
So we tell ourselves they're all still around us all the time
Gone but not forgotten, just memories left behind

[Outro]
But the dead'll still be walking 'round in this old world alone
Oh, well after life is over the afterlife goes on
Oh, well after life is over the afterlife goes on
