Don't try to take this from me
Don't try to take this from me
No-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow [x2]

Feels like I'm waking from the dead
And everyone's been waiting on me
'Least now I'll never have to wonder what it's like to sleep a year away
But were we indestructible?
I thought that we could brave it all (all)
I never thought that what would take me out was hiding down below

Lost the battle, win the war
I'm bringing my sinking ship back to the shore
We're starting over, or head back in
There's a time and a place to die but this ain't it

If there's a future, we want it
No-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow [x4]

Don't try to take this from me
Don't try to take this from me
No-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow [x2]

Wish I could find a crystal ball
For the days I feel completely worthless (less)
You know I'd use it all for good
I would not take it for granted (granted)
Instead, I have some memories
For the days I don't feel anything
At the least, they would remind me
Not to make the same mistakes again

Lost the battle, win the war
I'm bringing my sinking ship back to the shore
We're starting over, or head back in
There's a time and a place to die but this ain't it

If there's a future, we want it
No-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow [x4]

There's a time and a place to die
There's a time and a place to die
And this ain't it

There's a time and a place to die
And this ain't it, this ain't it!
This ain't it!

There's a time and a place to die
There's a time and a place to die
But this ain't it, no!

If there's a future, we want it
No-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow [x2]

If there's a future, we want it now!
No-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow

If there's a future, we want it
No-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow (x3)

    Now lyrics by Paramore.

    Don’t try to take this from me,
    don’t try to take this from me,
    na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow.
    Don’t try to take this from me,
    don’t try to take this from me,
    na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow.

    Feels like I’m waking from the dead.
    And everyone’s been waiting on me.
    At least now I never have to wonder.
    What it’s like to sleep a year away.
    But weren’t we indestructible?
    I thought that we could brave it all.
    I never thought that what would take me out.
    Was hiding down below.

    Lost the battle, win the war!
    I’m bringing my sinking ship back to the shore.
    Starting over, head back in!
    There’s a time and a place to die,
    But this ain’t it.

    If there’s a future we want it na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!
    If there’s a future we want it na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!
    If there’s a future we want it na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!
    If there’s a future we want it na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!

    Don’t try to take this from me,
    don’t try to take this from me,
    na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow.
    Don’t try to take this from me,
    don’t try to take this from me,
    na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow.

    Wish I could find a crystal ball.
    For the days I feel completely worthless.
    You know I’d use it all for good;.
    I would not take it for granted.
    Instead I’d have some memories.
    For the days? anything.
    At least they will remember not to make the same mistakes again.

    Lost the battle, win the war!
    I’m bringing my sinking ship back to the shore.
    Starting over, head back in!
    There’s a time and a place to die,
    But this ain’t it.

    If there’s a future we want it na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!
    If there’s a future we want it na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!
    If there’s a future we want it na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!
    If there’s a future we want it na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!

    Ooh…
    There’s a time and a place to die,
    There’s a time and a place to die,
    And this ain’t it.
    There’s a time and a place to die,
    And this ain’t it.
    This ain’t it!
    This ain’t it!
    There’s a time and a place to die,
    There’s a time and a place to die,
    And this ain’t it,
    Iiiiiiiiit!

    If there’s a future we want it na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!
    If there’s a future we want it na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!
    If there’s a future we want it na-ah-ah-ow!
    If there’s a future we want it na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!
    Na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!
    Na-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ow!
