Dead and lovely

by Tom Waits


She was a middle class girl
She was in over her head
She thought she would
Stand up in the deep end

He had a bullet proof smile
He had money to burn
She thought she had the moon
In her pocket

But now she´s dead
She´s so dead
Forever dead and lovely now

I´ve always been told to
Remember this...
Don´t let a fool kiss you
Never marry for love

He was hard to impress
He knew everyone´s secrets
He wore her on his arm
Just like jewelry

He never gave but he got
He kept her on a leash
He´s not the kind of wheel
You fall asleep at

But now she´s dead
Forever dead
Forever dead and lovely now

Come closer, look deeper
You´ve fallen fast
Just like a plane on a
Stormy sea

She made up someone to be
She made up somewhere to be from
This is one business in the
World where that´s no
Problem at all

Everything that is left
They will only plow under
Soon every one you know
Will be gone

And now she´s dead
Forever dead
Forever dead and lovely now

Now she´s dead
Forever dead
Forever dead and lovely now

I´ve always been told to
Remember this...
Don´t let a kiss fool you
Never marry for love

Everything has its price [2x]
What´s more romantic
Then dying in the moonlight?

Now they´re all watching the sea
What´s lost can never be broken
Her roots were sweet
But they were so shallow

And now she´s dead
Forever dead
Forever dead and lovely now

And now she´s dead
Forever dead
And she´s so dead and lovely now
