When You're Dead You're Dead
(when you're gone you're gone)

Notes

I love that first line, "One day a President, next day you can't make rent".. I actually really like singing this song and thought the subject matter is a bit grim, I just like the idea of no matter how important all of us think we are, at the end of the day, we all turn to dust.. gives a great reality check upon our own sense of importance, as in.."there are more important things in life than ME"..!!

I love the guitar melodies too..!!

Lyrics

V1) One day a president, next day you can't make rent
happens to us all once in a while
You're doin' alright, then you get into a fight
Life's just like that sometimes

CH) I know it ain't right, but it can't be wrong
When you're dead you're dead and when you're gone you're gone
No matter who you are or what you've done
When you're dead you're dead and when you're gone you're gone

V2) Top of the class, then you're on your arse
It take no time to fall from grace
You're on a mountain top, then you lose the lot
Fall right down, flat on your face

V3) The world at your feet, no-one can beat
From time to time, that's you and I
Turn your back, then that is that
You can't take it with you, when you die
