Flogging Molly-May the Living Be Dead In Our Way(lyrics)

Said her name was Marie from the banks of the Lee
With the prettiest eyes my own had ever seen
Her hair like ripples they danced with the tide
As our hearts washed away to the sea

Was she sent down from the Heavens above?
Her breath pure as whiskey my heart fell in love
Now the devil is courtin' a different tune
And I laugh as the tears watch the rain

Tell me why no one's listenin'
Is there nothing at all left to say
In a world so unforgiving
You mean more to me each every day
So may the living be dead in our wake

One cold winters night behind the clouds stars did hide
And the ghost of our souls thanking Christ we're alive
Our spirits they crackled with lovers first sight
Till the mornin' came fresh with a new

Will you dance with me now Heavens child sang the clown?
We've nothing left to lose but your wings and my frown
Where over the hills the valleys will ring
To the sound of our love singin' true

So tell me why no one's listenin'
Is there nothing at all left to say
In a world so unforgiving
You mean more to me each every day
So may the living be dead in our wake

But the summer sun is melting now
With the leaves I'll soon be gone
Will you have the strength
When the emptiness shadows fall?

Or will your aching heart be ripped apart
By the beating from the storm?
Or will howling gales like yesterdays be gone?
Yeah be gone, be gone

Was she sent down to me from the Heavens above?
Her breath pure as whiskey my heart fell in love
Now the devil is courtin' a different tune
And I laugh as the tears watch the rain

Tell me why no one's listenin'
Is there nothing at all left to say
In a world so unforgiving
You mean more to me each every day
So may the living be dead in our wake

Tell me why no one's listenin'
Is there nothing at all left to say
In a world so unforgiving
You mean more to me each every day
So may the living be dead in our wake
