Resurrect Me

  • It takes a long time to kill a man
    Fifty-five years at least
    Until he breaks down
    Starts to look underground
    To go off, and get him some peace
    I want to die a lot quicker then that

    If that's my only way out
    I've been counting up the coast
    Getting up on that cross
    I want to know what this is all about

    Father Time steals our days like a thief
    There's no price that I wouldn't pay to get some relief
    I've become the empty shell

    Of a man I don't like so well
    I am a living, breathing hell
    Come on and resurrect me

    I tried to drown the pain with a friend of mine
    It didn't seem to help
    She's got a pretty face with her wedding lace
    But I'm still waking up with myself

    I know what it means to choke it down
    Down until your legs get weak
    I know what it's like on a Saturday night
    To be alone in a crowded street

    Father Time steals our days like a thief
    There's no price that I haven't paid to get some relief
    I've become the shell of a man

    I am beginning to understand
    I've forgotten who I am
    Come on and resurrect me

    Resurrect me
    Come on and resurrect me Writer/s: JON FOREMAN
