I caught a chill
And it's still frozen on my skin
I think about why
I'm alone, by myself
No one else to explain
How far do I go?
No one knows
If the end is so much better, why don't we just live forever?
Don't tell me I'm the last one in line
Don't tell me I'm too late this time

[Chorus]
I don't want to live
To waste another day
Underneath the shadow of mistakes I made
Cause I feel like I'm breaking inside
I don't want to fall and say I lost it all
'Cause baby there's a part of me to hit the wall
Leaving pieces of me behind
And I feel like I'm breaking inside

Out here, nothings clear
Except the moment I decided to move on and I ignited
Disappear into the fear
You know there ain't no comin' back
When you're still carrying the past
You can't erase, separate
Cigarette in my hand,
Hope you all understand

I won't be the last one in line
I finally figured out what's mine

[Chorus]
I don't want to live
To waste another day
Underneath the shadow of mistakes I made
'Cause I feel like I'm breaking inside
I don't want to fall and say I lost it all
'Cause baby there's a part of me to hit the wall
Leaving pieces of me behind
Leaving pieces of me behind
And I feel like I'm breaking inside

I won't be the last one in line,
I finally figured out what's mine

[Chorus]
I don't want to live
To waste another day
Underneath the shadow of mistakes I made
'Cause I feel like I'm breaking inside
I don't want to fall and say I lost it all
'Cause baby there's a part of me to hit the wall
Leaving pieces of me behind
Leaving pieces of me behind
And I feel like I'm breaking inside
And I feel like I'm breaking,
I feel like I'm breaking inside

    This song is simply amazing. I can't discribe the way I feel when I listin to it. It makes me think about my life and look back on all of the many mistakes I have made and how I have chaged because of them. Also it reminds me that those things I have yet to let go of in my past are not worth holding on to and the sooner I let go the better. You should live everyday for today and tomorrow because you will never change the past. Trust me, I know.

    This song is amazing. But the lyrivs are wrong here.
    If the end is so much better why don't we live forever(doesn't even make sence) should be. " If the end is so much better why dont we just sleep forever" and.
    'cause baby there's a part of me to hit the wall. Should be(also makes no sense)
    'Cause maybe there's a part of that hit the wall. Leaving pieces of me behind. Anyway yes kudos shinedown you never stop amazing me!
    Cause maybe there's a part of me that hit the wall.
