Lyrics

Dear Death
I just wanted you to know
You may think that it's my time
But I do not intend to go
I like being in the sun
Making music, sipping wine
And I'm not even close to done

So go on
Send the Grim Reaper after me
He can look all dark and frightening
But that old school charm don't work on me
I know there's folks who'd follow willingly
So look for them and don't waste your time with me
I'm gonna live forever
Just you wait and see

Dear Death,
I don't think you should be the one
Who gets to tell me when it's over
And monopolize the fun
I want
To spend a decade down in Spain
I want to climb Kilimanjaro
And learn to dance the himaneĀ“

So go on
Send the Grim Reaper after me
He can look all dark and frightening
But that old school charm don't work on me
I know there's folks who'd follow willingly
So look for them and don't waste your time with me
I'm gonna live forever
Just you wait and see

I've heard life is gold
When you're old and grey
But I'm not ready for
Judgement day

Dear Death,
I'm afraid I'm here to stay
Yeah, I'm hard-headed and I'm stubborn
So you wouldn't want me anyway

But go ahead...
Send the Grim Reaper after me
He can look all dark and frightening
But that old school charm don't work on me
I know there's folks who'd follow willingly
So look for them and don't waste your time with me
I'm gonna live forever
Just you wait and see

Dear Death.
