Never risky,
Never scared
One closer to the edge
Nothing valued,
Think no fear

Always wondering why you're here
All your purposes are gone,
Nothing's right,
And nothing's wrong
Nothing ventured,
Nothing Gained
Feel no sorrow,
Feel no pain

[Chorus]
Kiss me while I'm still alive,
Kill me while I kiss the sky
Let me die on my own terms,
Let me live and let me learn

Now I've followed my own way, and
I'll live on to another damn day
Freedom carries sacrifice,
Remember when this was my life
[end chorus]

Looking forward, not behind
Everybody's gotta cross that line
Free me now to give me place,
Keep me caged to free the beast
Fallin' faster as time goes by,
Fear has not seen through these eyes
What there was will never be,
Now I'm blind and cannot see

[Chorus]
Kiss me while I'm still alive,
Kill me while I kiss the sky
Let me die on my own terms,
Let me live and let me learn

Now I've followed my own way, and
I'll live on to another damn day
Freedom carries sacrifice,
Remember when this was my life
(x3)
