About a year ago I started to fall apart again
The clues were obvious and clear
So I followed each one back into the place that it began
They disappeared as I drew near

That’s where I’ll find you, sitting on that front porch
You’ll have that look in your eyes
You’re ship is sinking and I’m caught in the undertow
The water’s black as the skies

Yeah, you’ll be the death of me yet

I can’t remember just how long it’s been but I found out
And I guess I knew all along
That you were poison I could taste it dripping from your mouth
But sometimes I just can’t be strong

And that’s where I’ll look for you — in all the places that we’ve been
And I’ll hear that quiver in your voice
Sometimes I can’t believe someone like you could suck me in
But I guess I ain’t got no choice

Yeah, you’ll be the death of me yet

It’s getting harder every day to be the man I am
But I keep on moving right along
And I run into things I sometimes just don’t understand
But all my decisions can’t be wrong

Yet still I’m running to you, though we’ve been down this road before
And I know it just ain’t no good
But all those things you do excite me baby, that’s for sure
I wouldn’t quit you if I could

Yeah, you’ll be the death of me yet
