Matt Maeson - Dancing After Death Lyrics




Do I know better than this?
You're a word that I can't forget
Though the thought rattles my brain
Will you fold, or will you remain?

If I don't get better than this
Man in my skin
If I don't get better than this
Man in my skin

If I let go, would you hold on? Would we fly?
Is it safer if we just say that we tried?
Are we laughing at the danger?
Are we dancing after death, you and I?

As the sun waits through eclipse
And the taste teases my lips
I'm too tired to wrestle with it
Will we burn, or will we repent

If I don't get better than this
Man in my skin
If I don't get better than this
Man in my skin

If I let go, would you hold on? Would we fly?
Is it safer if we just say that we tried?
Are we laughing at the danger?
Are we dancing after death, you and I?

If I let go, would you hold on? Would we fly?
Is it safer if we just say that we tried?
Are we laughing at the danger?
Are we dancing after death?

Are we laughing at the danger?
Are we dancing after death, you and I?

Matt Maeson Dancing After Death Comments
  1. Honesty Rios

    I absolutely love this song♥️ I used to listen to this all summer and I’d walk into band camp every single day listening to the song :) I even secretly listened to this on my friends AirPods when we did block band😭 overall great song and I love it!♥️

  2. 제이린

    the bgm in the begining reminds me of moonlight sonata idk why

  6. TRIBE I STORM

    I want to change but you won't recognize me anymore

  7. sagejr

    this song will blow up soon, surprise it hasnt yet!

  8. Michael McGrath

    You beautiful pale bastard.
    "...are we laughing at the danger, are we dancing after death, you and I..."

  9. Ana Maria Cristache

    Only I think this somehow sounds different than all his previous songs? Not saying is a bad thing, I really like the song. I just wanna know if I am going insane or not...

  10. Zina Khebou

    I love the song I just can't handle whoever edited the song track, first 30 & @[email protected] sec is something I could repeat but then the rest is crap minus the lyrics. Please fix it's a great song that deserves more care, or if that's not possible I'll just have to rearrange the song myself. I know how difficult it is to make a song sound perfect (I just want to add this song to my playlist without twitching that something isn't likable and could be better) but this one deserves.

    Matt Maeson

    Fight me

    Carter Proudfoot

    Dancing After Death lyrics

    Do I know better than this
    You’re a word that I can’t forget
    Though the thought rattled my brain
    Will you fold or will you remain

    If I don’t get better than
    This man in my skin

    If I let go
    Would you hold on
    Would we fly
    Is it safer
    If we just say
    That we tried
    Are we laughing
    At the danger
    Are we dancing After Death
    You and I

    As the sun waits to eclipse
    And the taste teases my lips
    I’m too tired to wrestle with it
    Will we burn or will we repent

    If I don’t get better than
    This man in my skin

    If I let go
    Would you hold on
    Would we fly
    Is it safer
    If we just say
    That we tried
    Are we laughing
    At the danger
    Are we dancing After Death
    You and I

    George Lopez

    *Lyrics*

    Do I know
    Better than this
    You’re a word I can’t forget
    Though the thought rattles my brain
    Will you fold or will you remain

    If I don’t get better than this man in my skin [x2]

    If I let go would you hold on,
    Would we fly
    Is it safer if we just say that we tried
    Are we laughing at the danger
    Are we dancing after death
    You and I

    As the sun waits to eclipse
    And the taste teases my lips
    I’m too tired to wrestle with it
    Will we burn or will we repent

    If I don’t get better than this man in my skin [x2]

    If I let go would you hold on,
    Would we fly
    Is it safer if we just say that we tried
    Are we laughing at the danger
    Are we dancing after death
    You and I [x2]
    Are we laughing at the danger
    Are we dancing after death
    You and I
