Ian Hunter - Dead Man Walkin’ lyrics

Hunter

I've been here before, this is where my fingers slipped into yours
This is where I trembled when you touched mine
This is where the seeds we planted long ago grew up to tell us we're too old to know.

I've been here before, this is where the novelty starts wearing off, wearing off, wearing off
And all the world's a stage, it's just that I ain't on it anymore, anymore
This ain't Eastenders, this ain't Eastenders, this ain't Eastenders, it's the real thing
What am I supposed to do now ? Crawl down the hole to monotony, monotony, monotony, monotony.

The silence is deafening, the phone never rings
Won't somebody help me 'cause I feel like I'm drowning.

If I should sink, if I should swim
It doesn't really matter anymore, dead man walkin'.

I've been meaning to tell you for oh so long
Baby, you got it right and I got it wrong, oh
Now I know what ageism means
You gotta try a little harder, gotta be a little stronger.

Yeah!

I've been here before, this is where nothing happens anymore, anymore, anymore
Someone else's rage, someone else's pain, someone else's ego, you will believe, oh you will believe
This ain't Eastenders, this ain't Eastenders, this ain't Eastenders, it's the real thing
But what am I supposed to do now ? Crawl down the hole to eternity, eternity, eternity, eternity.

It's a foregone conclusion, a fait accompli
It's all taken care of, so you don't have to worry
If I should lose, If I should win
It doesn't really matter anymore, dead man walkin'.

Oh yeah!

………………….

Ride on, my son
Ride on, my son
Ride until you fail.
