Rosenstock, Jeff - ...While You're Alive Lyrics




When you're a ghost, they'll sit around
And talk about how they liked you the most
When you're a dream, I'll wake up
To warm sun-rays that make me want to scream

I wanna let you know while you're alive
Because everybody loves you when you die
But when it matters, they're not there
Not there

When love is dead
We'll remember gentle nudges keeping us in bed
Or laughing at funerals, queasy at carnivals
Listening to heartbeats slowing down as we keep growing old

I wanna let you know while you're alive
Because everybody loves you when you die
But when it matters, they're not there
Not there

I gotta let you know while you're alive
Cause I'll be a disaster when you die
Chubby body, no hair, don't care

It's not like the love that they showed us on T.V
It's a home that can burn
It's a limb to freeze
It's worry

Love is worry
Yeah

Rosenstock, Jeff ...While You're Alive Comments
  1. Diego CM

    Who else here thiks Jeff Rosenstok is an underrated artist

  2. Pills

    Used to listen to this song (and this album) a lot a couple years back. Came back here because this song now always reminds me of the etika situation... niggas clowned him during his manic fits leading to his death, and then started mourning after his suicide, even though they didn't try to help him at all when he was alive...

  3. reductorsonico

    When you're a ghost, they'll sit around
    And talk about how they liked you the most
    When you're a dream, I'll wake up
    To warm sun-rays that make me want to scream

    I wanna let you know while you're alive
    Because everybody loves you when you die
    But when it matters, they're not there
    Not there

    When love is dead
    We'll remember gentle nudges keeping us in bed
    Or laughing at funerals, queasy at carnivals
    Listening to heartbeats slowing down as we keep growing old

    I wanna let you know while you're alive
    Because everybody loves you when you die
    But when it matters, they're not there
    Not there

    I gotta let you know while you're alive
    Cause I'll be a disaster when you die
    Chubby body, no hair, don't care

    It's not like the love that they showed us on T.V
    It's a home that can burn
    It's a limb to freeze
    It's worry

    after every celebrity death

    Matt Breymeyer

    Maybe focus on appreciating the people around you before they're gone too

    i hate how the song ends but its so fucking good

    Alex Gomez

    It ends that way because it bleeds seamlessly into the next song on the album.

    J M

    It bleeds into Perfect Sound Whatever, so listening to the album in order helps quite a bit.

  19. Cedric Gan

    I'm always amazed by how sympathetic Jeff is with his seemingly lovely personality and energetic life(not saying he's without his own struggle). Well that's what great artists are right? I'm still overwhelm by this album's full of emotions.

  20. Marcos Wicket

    Stupidly relatable. As much as Polar Bear and Africa. You speak through me man, a teen adult that still don't know what's growing up should be about.

  21. Enic3145

    why is nobody watching this. I love u jeff.
