Live,
I want to live inspired
Die,
I want to die for something

Racing towards the heavens
I fell into a pitch black
Moments from landing and I'm
Shaking like a heart attack

Is there time, can I turn back
I made mistakes in the past
Need a chance, can't say goodbye
Wish I could set things right tonight

Live,
I wanna live inspired
Die,
I wanna die for something

Higher than myself
Live and die for anyone else
The more I live I see
This life's not about me

All I know spins out of control
Wonder what's next for a hardened soul
Nothing I earned can save me now
Here in what may be my final hour

Is there time, can I turn back
I made mistakes in the past
Need a chance, can't say goodbye
Wish I could set things right tonight

Live,
I wanna live inspired
Die,
I wanna die for something

Higher than myself
Live and die for anyone else
The more I live I see
This life's not about me

Don't want to leave this world
Knowing I breathed in vain
Looked out for myself
So sorry so ashamed

Don't want to leave this life
Knowing I barely tried
To chase down all my dreams
That I hid away on the inside

Live,
I wanna live on fire
Die,
I wanna burn out brighter

Brighter than the Northern Lights
I wanna live to feel the daylight
The more I live I see
And this life's not about me
