Lyrics:

I was almost home peddling as fast as I could
Somewhere between 35th and Elwood
I never seen it, that white pick up truck
Ran into me underneath I was stuck
I crawled back out but I knew I was gone
The truck had drugged me all up on someone's lawn
Police were there and the driver just cried
I was only 14 years old, the night that I died
Expecting Heaven but my wings never grew
Never got pulled down to Hell not sure what to do
(I went home)
It's so depressing, my mom cannot hear me
Only the cat seems to notice me barely
They wrapped my body up and took it for good
But my soul is left to roam through the hood
My life was short as I dwell on my past
This death is lonely, how long will it last?
I wonder

What kind of death will leave me lingering on?
Forever 14 and forever alone
The walking dead through purgatory I roam
Forever 14 and forever alone

I walk through houses watch em' watching TV
Talk on the phone pay no attention to me
I like to watch pretty girls in the shower
They're naked ready, I watch them for hours
Some people fight I wonder why they're together
I walk the streets unaffected by weather
I walk through walls into bedrooms at night
Some people jump up but I'm nowhere in sight
Maybe they sense my presence if that the case
Why don't they hear me as I scream in their face?
I try to write on the steam in the mirror
I try to touch em' but it's like I'm not there
Some people stop and look around the room
It gives me hope but they all just resume
Am I a energy?
How do I channel?
How do I push a tea cup right off the mantel?
I wonder.

What kind of death will leave me lingering on?
Forever 14 and forever alone
The walking dead through purgatory I roam
Forever 14 and forever alone

I followed mom but she's never recovered
I can be with her but we can't be with each other
It's so unfair, I'm right here in this chair
I do anything to tell her I'm here
And when I'm outside, make no mistake
The crows watch every move that I make
I walk through cemeteries looking for clues
Maybe this is it, or am I still paying dues?
I wonder.

What kind of death will leave me lingering on?
Forever 14 and forever alone
The walking dead through purgatory I roam
Forever 14 and forever alone
