Take one breath
One fundamental sign of life
Don't look back, don't analyze
The tears you cry

Only the strong survive
The silent sacrifice
And I, I will be your heart of steel
But power has a price

Ain't it time that you believe in someone?
Ain't it wrong to let the years go by?
Standing face to face forever
Live or die

Hold me like a child
I'm not alive until you do
What you hold in your hand is a miracle
And it's dead if I don't have you

Hold me like a child
Swear you never let me go
You're the eye of the storm, the reason I laugh or cry
Live or die, I will stay with you

Take one breath
One fundamental sign of life
(You)
No bad blood
No pain can make you draw the knife

Oh, we got a world of trouble
But I will never change
And even if we fall tomorrow
We will rise again

Now is the time we show each other
These are the words I kept inside
Standing face to face forever
Live or die

Hold me like a child
(Hold me)
I'm not alive until you do
What you hold in your hand is a miracle
And it's dead if I don't have you

Hold me like a child
Swear you never let me go
You're the eye of the storm, the reason I laugh or cry
Live or die, I will stay with you
Live or die, I will stay with you

Take one breath
One fundamental sign of life
(Are you there?)
Don't look back
We love each other, live or die

Hold me like a child
I'm not alive until you do
Live or die, I will stay with you

Take one breath
One fundamental sign of life
(Hold me like a child)
Don't look back
We love each other, live or die
Hold me like a child
(Hold me like a child)

One fundamental sign of life
(Hold me)
Don't look back
We love each other, live or die
Hold me like a child
(Hold me like a child)

One fundamental sign of life
(Hold me)
Don't look back
We love each other live or die
Hold me like a child
(Hold me like a child)

One fundamental sign of life
(Hold me)
(Hold me)
Don't look back
We love each other live or die
