Lyrics

I don't remember being born
don't remember how it felt
I never knew the deal
or the way it was dealt

I know it was in August
and I heard it was hot
I know I got a mother
who loves me a lot

Do you believe in past lives?
Haven't I met you before?
When they said that I was dead
it wasn't true
I was just dead to you.

And I ain't dead, anymore

maybe I was an outlaw or the law itself
maybe i was a rich man or the rich man's help
perhaps I lived in China, perhaps I loved in vain
maybe I missed the boat, but made the train

Do you believe in past lives?
Haven't I met you before?
When they said that I was dead
It wasn't true
I was just dead to you

And I ain't dead
I ain't dead, anymore

I wish that I were good
oh man, I wish that I were great
I wish that I'd been early
more often than late
but nothing lasts forever
maybe that's fate
when you're alive you're alright
when you're dead, you're a saint

Do you believe in past lives?
Haven't I met you before?
Oh honey when they said
Scolnick is dead
it wasn't true
I was just dead to you

Well I ain't dead, anymore
