Story behind the song
Upon hearing the line, "I can't live without you," I went to the next logical thought: if you can't live without me then why aren't you dead? I figured this would be a country song but no, it surprised me!
Lyrics
http://www.moonbirdmusic.us/lyrics_ifyoucan'tlivewithoutme.htm When I left you, you tried to make me feel all guilty and sad You cried like a baby and generally tried to make me feel bad And you told me, if I left you, you would die on the floor like a dog - hogwash! Just explain what you said: If you can't live without me then why aren't you dead? That you lie most of the time is one thing that I should know by now You bulldoze me with your false verities and I still haven't figured out how But for some reason, when you told me I was the light in your life I believed you - such a fool! Just explain what you said: If you can't live without me then why aren't you dead? This is the bridge and it really doesn't do much of anything but give you a musical break My fingers are tired and my mind is expired And I'm looking and searching for some kind of way to escape And get out of this life with my soul intact I wish that you would just go away and stop following me all around The way you persist after me makes me wonder if you aren't part bloodhound I don't want you, I don't need you And to tell you the hard cold truth I don't like you at all - so don't call! Just explain what you said: If you can't live without me then why aren't you dead? Why aren't you dead? All rights reserved copyright 1976 Moonbird Music
