I WILL WANT TO DIE

I WILL WANT TO DIE


borrow the melody
sorrow and tragedy
borrow the melody
sorrow and tragedy

a new song i will write about
a girl i've lived my life without
and if we never meet
i will want to die, die
what in the world can i do?

a new generation is taking over
a fact my nerves are breaking over
the old man lost his chance
i will want to cry

it's impossible for me
to give up my
original teenage attitudes
will it become customary for me
to hide my actual year of birth?

i'll be an ancient blues man down
in some obscure small texas town
with an audience of nine
i will want to die

okay i'll give it one more year
to see if top forty will ever hear
the greatest composer of all time
i can say i tried
i won't know i died

borrow the melody
sorrow and tragedy
borrow the melody
sorrow and tragedy
borrow the melody
sorrow and tragedy
borrow a wheelchair


1986 r.stevie moore

as appears on
purpose
has-beens and never-weres
