Roberts, Sam - Walking The Dead Lyrics




You only miss it when it's long gone
You only hear it when it's our song
These are the echoes of the dreamtime
This is a message from another life
This is a haunting of your own mind
These are the echoes of the dreamtime
You only miss it when it's long gone

I've been waking the dead
I've been leaning on tradition
Trying to make amends with the dead
Prayer candles that I burn at both ends
Missed opportunities we won't share again

I recognized in the touch of a friend
That I am closer to the place I began
And so far from where I want it to end

You only miss it when it's long gone
You only hear it when it's our song
Keep looking up, 'cause it's a long way down
Keep looking up, 'cause it's a long way down

And now I'm walking with the dead
An apparition trying to get ahead
Bleed some pressure from this hole in my heavy head

And there was high water everywhere
Back teeth are swimming and I wished I cared
My teeth are swimming and I wish that I cared

You only miss it when it's long gone
You only hear it when it's our song
Keep looking up, 'cause it's a long way down
Keep looking up, 'cause it's a long way down

And I feel like making a confession
Or running for the door
If we could heal a little bit of this broken pride
We might survive

These are the echoes of the dreamtime
This is a message from another life
This is a haunting of your own mind
These are the echoes of the dreamtime

Roberts, Sam Walking The Dead Comments
  1. Fayez Saleemi

    Phenomenal. reach sauga city some time !

  2. Sean B

    This song is unreal. Infinity repeat.

  3. Logan Avelar

    That's absolute bullshit. You think an artist will drop all integrity because of a few dollars? Sam is doing pretty damn well these days, and what's he writing about? The exact same stuff. He's socially sound, and will continue to be that way.

  4. CaraAsoleada

    Dude, I didn't pull it out of my ass, I noticed some earlier comments doing just the same. Why would you comment on a post from 3 years ago?

  5. meliza azilem

    please stop comparing sam with nickleback !

  6. meliza azilem

    there is no way you can put such comment like this. why would you care about nickleback and compare an indie artist to some mainstream band. to all if you like indie bands or artist keep it down and just listen to them. we don't need a lot of people's attention and want a limited audience. once you go mainstream you will forget the true art of making music and start making all the garbage music.

  7. Chas Piper

    no dislikes, damn right!

  8. Kristi

    I LOVE THE INTRO! :D

  9. Filosofize

    He loves to perform in B.C... best herb :D

  10. Filosofize

    One of Sam's most underrated songs..

  11. CaraAsoleada

    WHY does Nickelback get more attention than Sam Roberts? Sam Roberts has to be one of the best bands, the facts following why are because they are talented, they sound different in their own amazing way, the lyrics are understandable and have a message in each song, and they are also Canadian.

  12. Manpreet Dhillon

    most underrated canadian band...seriously..nickelback gets more love than these guys and its a shame...this is just one of the best songs in this album...
    go sam roberts!

  13. Mary-Lee Roy Parks
