People bring me casseroles
And pray for his immortal soul
They think I’m in widow’s weeds
But pity’s the last thing I need

I dress in black and wear a veil
To hide bright eyes and skin so pale
And make sure that nobody sees
The marks of love my lover leaves

Since the day they told me he was gone
Haunts me faithfully from dusk till dawn
Hear him whisper sweetly in my ear
Can’t you see we got a good thing here

Feel his fingertips caress my hair
Turn around and there is nothing there
Phantom arms around me sleeping near
Can’t you see we got a good thing here

When some people pass away
They don't reach the heaven that they prayed
Bitter about the fallacy
The afterlife turned out to be

They bitch and moan and hide your keys
Or talk to psychics on TV
They just groan and shake their chains
When I say my baby's on the physical plane

When I died upon that cold cold night
Made a promise never leave her side
Now she knows that there's nothing to fear
Can’t you see we got a good thing here

I run my fingers through her hair
She turns around and there's nothing there
Wrap my arms around her sleeping near
Can’t you see we got a good thing here

My husband cooling in the ground, the worms crawl in and out
My lover’s disembodied soul makes me so happy now
When they drew their pistols and they fired each one shot
How could I have imagined this sweet bliss would be my lot

I used to be an angry man, I wanted things that weren’t mine
At fifteen paces in the sand I left that all behind
Now my spirits rise when she turns out the bedroom light
I gently haunt my lover in the cold and tender night

They try to comfort me with platitudes
They don't know I'm in a real fine mood
There's no reason I should shed one tear
Can't you see we got a good thing here

Don't talk to me of “death do us part”
Between us we share one beating heart
Candles flicker in the chandelier
Can't you see we got a good thing here
