  • Boy you'll be the death of me
    You're my James Dean
    You make me feel like I'm seventeen
    You drive too fast, you smoke too much
    But that don't mean a thing
    'Cause I'm addicted to the rush

    'Cause I'd rather die young
    Than live my life without you
    I rather not live at all
    Than live my life without you

    'Cause I'd rather die young
    Than live my life without you
    I rather not live at all
    Than live my life without you

    You know I've been in love before
    You're the first one I ever seen
    That burns like gasoline
    So light a match, turn off the lights
    I'm holding on to you
    'Cause this might be a last night, oh

    'Cause I'd rather die young
    Than live my life without you
    I rather not live at all
    Than live my life without you

    'Cause I'd rather die young
    Than live my life without you
    I rather not live at all
    Than live my life without you

    What I'm telling you
    I'm giving you my life, it's in your hands
    And what I'm gonna do
    Is be a woman and you can be a man
    And I wanna say
    Nobody understands what we've been through
    I rather give up everything
    Than to live my, live my life without you

    Oh!
    Oh!

    'Cause I'd rather die young
    Than live my life without you
    I rather not live at all
    Than live my life without you

    'Cause I'd rather die young
    Than live my life without you
    I rather not live at all
    Than live my life without you Writer/s: BEYONCE KNOWLES, JEFF BHASKER, LUKE STEELE
