I Would Rather Be Dead

By Bruce Clifford

Sounds from yesterday
Words for today
I missed what you were saying
I don't know what you said
All I know
I would rather be dead

Songs for tomorrow
Visions of today
I took all of my chances
She got in my head
I know that instead
I would rather be dead

Because life without you would be missing the songs
And living without you I know I wouldn't belong
I wouldn't want to carry on

Sounds from yesterday
Words for today
I missed what you were saying
It's out of my head
Each day is a mystery
All I know
I would rather be dead

6/10/11 Bruce Clifford
