Vic Chesnutt – Flirted With You All My Life lyrics

[Verse]
I am a man
I am self aware
And everywhere I go
You’re always right there with me
I flirted with you all of my life
Even kissed you once or twice
And to this day I swear it was nice
But clearly I was not ready
[Verse]
When you touched a friend of mine
I thought I would lose my mind
But I found out with time
That really, I was not ready
Oh death, oh death
Oh death,
Really, I’m not ready. [Verse]
Oh death, you hector me
And decimate those dear to me
You tease me with your sweet relief
You are cruel and you are constant
When my mom was cancer sick
She fought but succumbed to it
But you made her beg for it
“Lord Jesus, please, I’m ready”
Oh death, oh death
Oh death, clearly I am not ready
Oh death, oh death
Oh death, clearly I am not ready
