Flirted With You All My Life

(Vic Chestnutt )

I am a man
I am self aware
and everywhere i go
you’re always right there with me
I’ve flirted with you all my life
even kissed you once or twice
’til this day I swear it was nice
but clearly I was not ready

When you touched a friend of mine
I thought I would lose my mind
but I found out with time
that really I was not ready
oh death, oh death
oh death, really I’m not ready

Oh death, you had to me
decimate those dear to me
tease me with your sweet release
you are cruel and you are constant

When my mom was cancer sick
she fought but then succumbed to it
but you made her beg for it
sweet Jesus please I’m ready
oh death, oh death,
oh death, really I’m not ready
