"I Don't Want to Live This Life (Anymore)" as written by and Joey Ramone Dee Dee Ramone....
Now that you're gone
I feel the pain
My heart trembles
I call your name
I miss your touch
Your soft blond hair
I keep searching for an answer
But it just ain't there

And I don't want to live this life
And I don't want to live this life
And I don't want to live this life
Anymore

Everywhere I turn
The finger points on me
You'll never understand
I'm in misery
Oh baby, without you
I have no one
Oh my sweet darling
What have I done?

And I don't want to live this life
And I don't want to live this life
And I don't want to live this life
Anymore

All right!
She smiled at me
As I held her carefully
The last words were I love you
Thought it set me free
And I can't forget
That look on your face
She looked like an angel
As she died in my prayers

And I don't want to live this life
And I don't want to live this life
And I don't want to live this life
Anymore

    General CommentIt refers to Sid Vicious, based on the poem he wrote for his dead girlfriend Nancy Spungen before dying himself.

    General CommentThis is a Ramones song, not a Sex Pistols song.
    It has nothing to do with Sid Vicious

    General Commentwhy does it have to be a sex pistols song to be about sid and nancy...the ramones and sex pistols ran the same circles at the same time, both being part of the punk movement...it seems obvious why they would make a tribute to them...

    of course its about sid and nancy...

    General Commentmarx is right, the ramones wrote two songs about Sid and Nancy, this being one. the other is Love Kills, and that even says Sid and Nancy's names. it doesn't HAVE to be a sex pistols song to be about them..

    General CommentYeah Marx is definately right. Makes me cry too! poor sid. Especially when joey sings: "Oh, my sweet darling what have I done".

    General Commentlove kills IS a joe strummer song but its not this one. just same name. i almost cried reading this song. i read its about sid and nancy and sid loved nancy alot and i could definatly see him saying this, its like the poem he wrote. inspired by that im guessing.

    General Commentyeah this song is based off the poem sid wrote to nancy after her death.
    "You were my little baby girl,
    And I shared all your fears.
    Such joy to hold you in my arms
    and kiss away your tears.
    But now you're gone, there's only pain
    and nothing I can do.
    And I don't want to live this life,
    If I can't live for you.
    To my beautiful baby girl.
    Our love will never die..."
    beautiful.

    Song Meaningit was originally written for the "Sid & Nancy" movie but was an outtake from the soundtrack, it's a beautiful song by the way, very sad, it could be for anyone who's ever lost anyone and they blame themselves or people blame them and the person is so depressed that they feel that they don't wanna live their life the way it is anymore, they want a change, they want to change, but might also wanna die. :(
