  • Candles burning, the hours turning
    A countdown the day that we're born
    Don't look backwards, keep driving forwards
    The rose withers but not the thorns

    If you want it, then you can take it
    Just seize it before it's too late
    And if all fails, get back on your feet
    There's always another today but still we'll

    Pray for one last chance to prove we all belong
    Through the dark nights and cold days while time marches on

    In this life, we're running out of days
    We're running out of time, ignoring it's a crime
    No regrets, just one shot at glory
    Is all we got before we die
    Sands of time are slipping through our hands
    So try and understand and do it while you can
    Don't look back, just one shot at glory
    Is all it takes to feel alive

    Anger rising, relentless fighting
    But soon you'll be finally free
    Find your way through this endless maze
    Be the one that you wanted to be

    Pray for one last chance to prove we all belong
    Through the dark nights and cold days while time marches on

    In this life, we're running out of days
    We're running out of time, ignoring it's a crime
    No regrets, just one shot at glory
    Is all we got before we die
    Sands of time are slipping through our hands
    So try and understand and do it while you can
    Don't look back, just one shot at glory
    Is all it takes to feel alive

    Fear not a twisted future, no matter what it brings
    Can't you see now, you're all tomorrow's kings
    Tomorrow's kings!

    Pray for one last chance to prove we all belong
    Through the dark nights and cold days while time marches on

    In this life, we're running out of days
    We're running out of time, ignoring it's a crime
    No regrets, just one shot at glory
    Is all we got before we die
    Sands of time are slipping through our hands
    So try and understand and do it while you can
    Don't look back, just one shot at glory
    Is all it takes to feel alive Writer/s: FREDERIC LECLERCQ, HERMAN LI, SAM TOTMAN, VADIM PRUZHANOV
