I let you escape, slip through my fingers
We made our mistakes, but memories linger
Each time I turn a corner I swear I see your face
But I'm standing here alone in the wonder
What I really needed, what made me run away?
Was it just somebody's spell I was under

(Chorus)
We all love on borrowed time, tomorrow's flying blind
And life's too short to be living without you

You laughed at my jokes, broke down my defenses
It's like my heart just awoke, and brought back my senses
I've got my motor running, it's all that I can do
Cause every road I'm taking, is leading back to you

Repeat Chorus
We all love on borrowed time, tomorrow's flying blind
And life's too short to be living without you
And life's too short
And life's too short

I give in I can't go it alone, yeah I'm done now I know that you're gone
I need someone to save me and life's too short, too short

I give in I can't go it alone
Life's too short to be living without you
Life's too short

I give in I can't go it alone
Life's too short can't be living without you
Life's too short

I give in I can't go it alone
I can live without you
Life's too short

I give in I can't go it alone
Life's too short to be living without you
