So I Said You Died

This song is by Deathboy and appears on the album ToRights (2008).

My moon goes down
Your sun comes up
Is your rhythm natural
Or down to luck?

Hear their feet in the corridor
Hold my head down
Life's become intolerable
Since you're not around

When they came looking
I struggled for a lie
Can't have been too convincing
They took me for a ride

So I said you died
So I said you died
So I said you died
So I said you died

They said you lived here
I said you'd gone
Calling me a liar
I said they were wrong

Showed me a photograph
You and me, all smiles
Said it proved I knew you
I said it's been a while

I feel more peaceful now
If a little resigned
Images all fade away
Leaving me behind

And it gives me the shivers
Recordings of your voice
Asking me for forgiveness
As if I had a choice

So I said you died
So I said you died
So I said you died
So I said you died

Asking too many questions
In this interrogation
Couriers carry clipboards
And demand information

I got lost in a paragraph
Was is something I signed?
Left a promise on voice mail
Lost my heart and my mind

Now they look at me funny
Since you went away
On the edge of the pavement
At the end of the day

Just a name on my credit cards
Just bruise in my pride
Never knew what to tell them
So I said you died

We were in this together
Must have done something wrong
So you wrote me a letter
So I sang you a song

Now I'm counting the seconds down
Till they knock down the door
Turning up with the teargas
I'm not there anymore
