Lori McKenna – Never Die Young lyrics

When the angels came down did they give you a choice
Would they have let you stay where you were?
Not to live here in pain, should not bring you shame
And the light is so hard to deter
Did the gates of Heaven look just as you thought?
Did sister Mary describe them quite well?
Years of Catholic school were all good to you because
You were the angel who fell.

I am the one who will never die young
I am a martyr and I can not hide
But I'm not a winner, I'm just brilliantly bitter
I'm sealed by my skin, but broken inside

Angels are fragile and devils are hot
And life is a masquerade
Colors will blend and hearts will all mend
Just tell me you were never afraid

I am the one who will never die young
I am a martyr and I can not hide
But I'm not a winner, I'm just brilliantly bitter
I'm sealed by my skin, but broken inside

And there are babies laughing and children running
Saying "read me a book, sing me a song"
And I was the one who I felt so so sorry for
But you are the one who is gone

So will you save me a seat if I make it that far?
Will you even know that I am the one?
I will be old for the angels have told me
That I will never die young.

Cause I am the one who will never die young
I am a martyr and I can not hide
But I'm not a winner, I'm just brilliantly bitter
I'm sealed by my skin, but broken inside...

And I will be old for the angels have told me that I -

Will never die young...

Never die young...
