Back From The Dead

I never thought that you, and I would ever meet again
I mourn the loss of you sometimes and pray for peace within
The word "distraught" cannot describe how my heart has been
But where do we begin now that you're back from the dead?
Where do we begin now that you're back from the dead?
Where do we begin now that you're back from the dead?

I held the funeral the day you left
A black umbrella
And a sad song in my head
Buried your pictures that I loved the most
Cos if you survived me I just didn't wanna know

So you can't just come back now
Like a demon, uninvited
No you can't just expect me
To open my door to you, because

I never thought that you, and I would ever meet again
I mourn the loss of you sometimes and pray for peace within
The word "distraught" cannot describe how my heart has been
But where do we begin now that you're back from the dead?
Where do we begin now that you're back from the dead?
Where do we begin now that you're back from the dead?

I'm so confused I don't know what to feel
Should I throw my arms around you or kill you for real
Cos I've worked so hard to put the past to rest
Now it's tumbling down on me just like an avalanche

So you can't just come back now
Like a demon, uninvited
No you can't just expect me
To open my door to you, because

I know, I know I could sit and talk, but I can't make you listen
You wish that I paid attention
I thought if I paid admissions to wherever, go however
It would paint the perfect picture
You said "no matter how much you fuckin make it doesn't make a difference"
And I'm so so so sorry that we fell in love, Geronimo
It's like one thing leads to another, swear we fuckin with dominoes
But here we are, now I'm tryin to find an answer in that bottle, girl
I'm drownin' slow, drownin' slow
Don't let the piranhas know

But you gon' miss me when I'm gone
Why we gotta wait that long?
Baby, don't, don't, so don't, don't
Or should I walk out instead
Is this live or let die or night of the living dead?

I never thought that you, and I would ever meet again
I mourn the loss of you sometimes and pray for peace within
The word "distraught" cannot describe how my heart has been
But where do we begin now that you're back from the dead?
Where do we begin now that you're back from the dead?
Where do we begin now that you're back from the dead?
