I got the letter you left under my door
Knocked me on my ass to the floor
Never knew two words could take such a bite
It said, “Dear Jon, Hello. Goodbye.”

I saw your car parked outside Motel Cascade
Saw two shadows go to town on the shade
I can't believe my own lyin' eyes, oh my
It better be your girlfriend I saw going down some other guy

You told me you loved me, ‘til death do us part
So tell me there's a tombstone where there used to be a heart

[Chorus:]
You said you couldn't live without me
So why aren't you dead?
Instead of six feet under you're in someone else's bed
There's just one thing that I can't get through my head
You said you couldn't live without me so why aren't you dead?

I cut your face out of our old photographs
And all the junk you left behind's in the trash
Well, I hoped you were a goner for sure
Well, there's been a resurrection, yeah, a miracle cure

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
If you can't trust the livin' baby who can you trust?

[Chorus]

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
If you can't trust the livin' baby who can you trust?

[Chorus]

You said you couldn't live with out me, what a surprise!
Instead of laying you out I'm laying down on the line
You spend my hard-earned money, you left me in the red
You said you couldn't live without me…. so why aren't you dead?

Why aren't you dead?

Why aren't you dead?
