I've been trying to pretend
That death is my friend
Oh, this life
Yes, this life ain't for me now

I've been lying to myself
Not to nobody else
Oh, this life
Yes, this life ain't for me now
No

Liar
I'm telling the truth to y'all
Higher
Gonna give a little proof to y'all
Higher
I'm gonna jump in the fire

Well I walked into black
Said I weren't coming back
Saw my angel in blue
She tell me "This life ain't for you"
Oh, this life
Tell it to me - this life ain't for me now

I woke up feeling new
'Cause now I know this life is for you
Yes, this life
Oh, this life ain't for me now
It's for you!

Liar
I'm telling the truth to y'all
Higher
I'm gonna give a little proof to y'all
I'm gonna jump into the fire!
