"Everybody Loves You (When You're Dead)" as written by and Todd C. Ashley....
Everybody loves you when you're dead
And everyone is suddenly your dearest friend
Nobody talks no dirt about you
But life - it just goes on above your head
When you're dead

Everybody misses you when you're gone
They'll reminisce about you
When they hear your favorite song
They'll think that they said something wrong
They'll wonder if there was something they should've said
When you're gone

And I'm never gonna tell a lie
And I'm never gonna wear a tie
And I'm never gonna say goodbye

Life is so much better when you're dead
Conversation's easy when there's nothing to be said
But it can get a little lonesome
Maybe you should take along a friend
Like I said

And I'm never gonna tell a lie
And I'm never gonna wear a tie
And if I can't walk, maybe I can fly
Don't ask the reason why
But I'm never gonna say goodbye

    General CommentThe title explains the lyrics pretty well, thinking of someone differently (In this case, as if they're better) after they die.
