"Long Time Dead" as written by Thomas Peter Gladwin, Richard James Witter, Alan Steven Leach and Paul Adrian Banks....
You're a long time dead
So I'll forget that you said
If I can't have you

Nobody can have you
Nobody can have you
Nobody can have you

I think you stopped learning
'Cause you think you know everything,
And you do
You're a long time dead

So I'll forget that you said
If I can't have you

Nobody can have you
Nobody can have you
Nobody can have you

Was it off the top of your head
Did you mean what you said
Do you like me enough
Do you like me because I can't have you

Nobody can have you
Was it off the top of your head
Did you mean what you said

Do you like me enough
Do you like me because I care

    My InterpretationI suppose you could say that this song is about someone from long ago who was already in a relationship but seeing the "grass as being greener" in another person, and stringing the other person along.

    General Comment"You're a long time dead
    So I'll forget that you said"

    In these 2 lines the singer is trying to get over the girl

    "If I can't have you
    Nobody can have you
    Nobody can have you"

    But as the singer who was being strung along at the time is now in love with this girl, since she can't be with him, nobody else will as his heart is now infatuated only with her even after all this time.
