Flirted with You all My Life

I am a man

I am self aware

And everywhere I go

You’re always right there with me


I flirted with you all my life

Even kissed you once or twice

And to this day I swear it was nice

But clearly I was not ready…


Oh Death you hector me

Decimate those dear to me

Tease me with your sweet relief

You are cruel and you are constant


When you touched a friend of mine

I thought I would lose my mind

But I found out with time that

really I was was not ready, no no


Oh Death

Oh Death

Oh Death

Really, I’m not ready


Oh, Death you hector 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 succumb to it

But you made her beg for it

Lord Jesus, please I’m ready


Oh Death

Oh Death

Oh Death

Really, I’m not ready
