Dead Friend

Album: Transgender Dysphoria Blues (2014)
  • You don't worry about tomorrow anymore,
    'Cause you're dead
    Does anything still echo?
    Is there any trace left?
    Well I know she still remembers,
    She sleeps with your picture by her bed
    They shaved your face and washed your hair clean
    You were wearing the jacket that I met you in

    How could I not have guessed?
    She would fall in love with the first boy
    She kissed in a casket
    Fall in love with the first boy
    She kissed in a casket
    Fall in love with the first boy
    She kissed in a casket
    God damn it (God damn it)
    God damn I miss my dead friend
    I miss my dead friend

    We buried your body into the hard Oklahoma ground
    John Paul Allison, the orphan boy Pope
    Now she waits for you to haunt her
    She sleeps with your ghost at night in bed
    When you died you were only twenty six
    The most real person that I've ever met

    Well how could I not have guessed?
    She would fall in love with the first boy
    She kissed in a casket
    Fall in love with the first boy
    She kissed in a casket
    Fall in love with the first boy
    She kissed in a casket
    God damn it (God damn it)
    God damn I miss my dead friend
    I miss my dead friend

    Or your cold dead hands
    Or your cold dead lips
    Or your cold dead heart
    Or your cold dead kiss

    Or your cold dead hands
    Or your cold dead lips
    Or your cold dead heart
    Or your cold dead kiss

    Well how could I not have guessed?
    Well how could I not have guessed?
    She would fall in love with the first boy
    She kissed in a casket
    Fall in love with the first boy
    She kissed in a casket
    Fall in love with the first boy
    She kissed in a casket
    God damn it (God damn it)
    God damn I miss my dead friend Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
