I'm Dead Lyrics - Randy Newman

Review The Song (1)



I have nothing left to say
But I'm going to say it anyway
Thirty years upon a stage
And now I hear the people say
Why won't he go away?

I pass the houses of the dead
They're calling me to join their group
But I stagger on instead
Dear God, Sweet God
Protect me from the truth

CHORUS

I'm dead but I don't know it
(He's dead He's dead)
I'm dead but I don't know
(He's dead He's dead)
I'm dead but I don't know it
sponsored links
(He's dead He's dead)
Please don't tell me so
Let me, let me go

I have a family to support
But surely, that is no excuse
I've nothing further to report
Time you spend with me
Is time you lose

BRIDGE

I always thought that I would know
When it was time to quit
That when I lost a step or two or three or four or five
I'd notice it
Now that I've arrived here safely
I find my talent is gone
Why do I go on and on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on and on


(He's dead He's dead He's dead)
I don't know it
(He's dead He's dead He's dead)
I didn't know
(He's dead He's dead He's dead)
I didn't know it
(He's dead He's dead He's dead)
How would be so cruel to tell me so?
(You're dead!)


When will I end this bitter game?
When will I end this cruel charade?
Everything I write all sounds the same
Each record that I'm making
Sounds like a record that I made
Just not as good!


I'm dead but I don't know it
(He's dead He's dead)
I'm dead but I didn't know
(He's dead He's dead)
I'm dead but I don't know it
(He's dead He's dead)
Please don't tell me so
Please don't tell me so
(YOUR"RE DEAD!!!)

great song! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/22/2008

I'm a Johnny-come-lately to this great song. I heard it on KPIG, and it knocked me off! I am trying to get the song or album, but it is not on ITunes (dood!). This is biting, dark humor in a cool tune--I didn't know it was RN, because it sounded heavier than most of what I have heard from this song writer.

I will keep up the quest, though--I must have this song!!!!
