Dead man, were you ever alive, or was I just a seed
Buried deep inside some woman you wed
Right before you crawled out of her bed
And crept down the hall, did you think of me
Did you even for a second hesitate in the doorway
It's just something that I'd like to know
Though I'd still love you if you told me
That you just walked away

My God, what a world you love
Men bury their sons
And without thought
They just walk away

And my mother's heart breaks
Like the water inside of her
And my mother's heart, it breaks
It breaks like the water inside of her

And dead man, is it being high that makes you alive
It makes you leave behind, three boys and a wife in '89
And as the track marks inched their way up your arm
My mother taught my brothers and I
Not to call you daddy, but to call you father

But I believe there is something here to be learned of grace
'Cause I can't help but love you
No I can't help but love you
Even with a heart that breaks like
Like the promises that you made
Like the promises that you made
Like the promises that you made

'Cause i still love you
'Cause i still love you
I still love you
I still love you

Lying in your bed
Dying of disease
It's taking over your cells
It's taking over me
But I still love you
I still love you
Oh, I still,
I still love you
Because after all I've done
He still loves me

My God, what a world you love (sing it)
What a world you love
What a world you love
What a world you love
