How Come I Ain't Dead Lyrics

I begged her not to go, said I could not live without her
She said, don't be dramatic, you'll survive
She drove away, the sky turned gray

I cried all night about her
I'm still breathin' but her leavin' hurts more
Each day I'm alive

If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead?
Six feet down, in the cold, cold ground
With a stone above my head

But somethin's wrong 'cause now she's gone
And I live on instead
If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead?

I wake up in the mornin', scared to open up my eyes
I don't know, if I'll be there in the mirror
But there I am, a broken man

I look somewhat surprised
I'm grateful for another day
But amazed that I'm still here

If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead?
Six feet down, in the cold, cold ground
With a stone above my head

But somethin's wrong 'cause now she's gone
And I live on instead
If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead?

Saint Peter's waitin' for me outside the pearly gates
But I'm waitin' on the angel band, I guess they're runnin' late

If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead?
Six feet down, in the cold, cold ground
With a stone above my head

But somethin's wrong 'cause now she's gone
And I live on instead
If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead?

Yes, somethin's wrong 'cause now she's gone
And I live on instead
If I can't live without her, how come I ain't dead?
