I might be dead
Might be dead
Might be dead
By the time you hear this song

I bring a knife to a fistfight
But lately my baby bring her gun
Yeah she's a cold hearted killer
She'll play you out and just move on

So if I'm dead
If I'm dead
If I'm dead
By the time you hear this song
Tell 'em I was strong to the bitter end
Tell 'em I believed on these six strings
And every word I said

Yeah, it was my greatest fault and my greatest gift
And I died like a fool for it
So tell 'em how I lived

I might be dead
might be dead
might be dead
By the time the music stops
And the only way you'll see me's in a casket or in a plastic box

So if I'm dead
If I'm dead
If I'm dead
By the time you hear this song
Tell 'em I was strong to the bitter end
Tell 'em I believed on these six strings
And every word I said

Yeah, it was my greatest fault and my greatest gift
And I died like a fool for it
So tell 'em
It was my greatest fault and my greatest gift
And I died like a fool for it
So tell 'em how I lived
You tell 'em how I lived

Let's get it straight
I'll take your money but I
Don't want your pity
Don't need your sympathy
I just need to know
That all this running was for something (don't play me for a fool)

I'll take your money but I (don't want your sympathy)
Don't want your pity
I just need to know
That all this running
That all this running was for something
But maybe I'll never know

Tell 'em I was strong to the beautiful end
Tell 'em I believed on these six strings
And every word I said

Yeah, it was my greatest fault and my greatest gift
And I died like a fool for it
So tell 'em
It was my greatest fault and my greatest gift
And I died like a fool for it
So tell 'em how I lived
You tell 'em how I lived

Dead, might be dead
By the time you hear this song
I might be dead
I bring a knife to a fistfight
But lately my baby she bring a gun
Dead, might be dead
By the time you hear this song
I might be dead
Dead, might be dead and gone
