Dead And Gone

Album: Snake Bite Love (1998)
  • Woke up insane today
    Dreamed I was blown away
    Ten thousand called my name
    Asleep at the wheel again
    Turn me down, turn me down
    Take my head and turn it around
    Turn me on, turn me on
    Everything I do is wrong

    Woke up in hell today
    Spoke to the devil, he turned away
    All of my friends were there
    They didn't have no time to spare
    Turn me down, turn me down
    Step back and I hit the ground
    Turn me on, turn me on
    Everything I do is wrong

    Out of the night comes a song that I know
    Twisted and ruined and black
    I can remember the people they were
    Nobody knows if they ever come back
    Lost in the ashes of time they still sing
    Echoes of romance gone bad
    I can remember them better than you
    I shared the darkness they had
    Dead and gone, dead and gone

    Woke up in my grave today
    I dreamed I heard you say
    All of eternity was pain
    I laid my head back down again

    Turn me down, turn me down
    Your lips move but you make no sound
    Turn me on, turn me on
    Everything I do is wrong

    Out of the night comes a song that I know
    Twisted and ruined and black
    I can remember the people they were
    Nobody knows if they ever come back
    Lost in the ashes of time they still sing
    Echoes of romance gone bad
    I can remember them better than you
    I shared the nightmares they had
    Dead and gone, dead and gone, dead and gone
    So long, so long, so long
    Dead and gone. Writer/s: BRANDON DEAVITT W. BLISS, GREGORY JOHN FISHER, ROB GEORGE PASALIC, MATT ADAM RICHMOND, BENJAMIN BAIRD RISPIN, GREG TAYLOR
