"Dead Man Walking" as written by Daniel John O'donoghue and Mark Anthony Sheehan....
I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man walking walking walking
I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man

I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man walking walking walking
I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man

I see you standing there but you're already gone
I'm holding your hand but you're barely holding on
I'm kissing your lips but it just don't feel the same
Am I dead man now, left living with the blame
Oh I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man walking walking walking

Already broken, already gone
Already know you're moving on
I'm a breathing, talking
Dead man, walking
Already see it, in your face
Already someone, in my place
I'm a breathing, talking
Dead man, walking

I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man walking walking walking
I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man

We're in the same room just one million miles away
With all these books around but we ain't go two words to say
Am I a dead man now, left living with the shame?
I'm

Already broken, already gone
Already know you're moving on
I'm a breathing, talking
Dead man, walking
Already see it, in your face
Already someone, in my place
I'm a breathing, talking
Dead man, walking

I'm a breathing, talking
Dead man, walking

I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man walking walking walking
I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man

Already broken, already gone
Already know you're moving on
I'm a breathing, talking
Dead man, walking
Already see it, in your face
Already someone, in my place
I'm a breathing, talking
Dead man, walking

I'm a breathing, talking
Dead man, walking
I'm a breathing, talking
Dead man, walking

I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man walking walking walking
I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man

I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man walking walking walking
I hear the angels talking talking talking
Now I'm a dead man

Now I'm a dead man

    Song MeaningOk lets begin! The angels in the song is his ex telling him hes dead to her. The first verse is saying time is going too fast to handle."I see you standing there but your're already gone." He is also trying to tell himself its over and its his fault. "Am I a dead man now left living with the blame?" In the second verse the line - "With all these books around and we ain't got two words to say." The books represent the stuff they know about each other and the reason they loved each other. The chorus is about him realising its over and if hes dead to her hes dead cos no one eles loves him :^/.

    General CommentIt's about being in a fling relationship and knowing it, knowing it will end, when you're feelings for that someone are obviously more than their feelings for you and you know they're going to leave you for someone else like an ex.
    Pretty good song IMO!
