  • You called with the news
    I thought you were kidding
    You were always joking all the time
    You kept breathing, but stopped living
    Held it like poison inside
    They say everything happens for a reason
    But it only makes you mad
    'Cause how in the hell can you believe 'em
    When nothing brings her back?

    It's hard to know (know)
    What she would say
    But I think she'd

    Want you to live like the world's on fire
    Want you to love like hearts don't break (break)
    Never look down when you walk the wire
    Like she made it to forty-eight
    Still made your birthday cake

    All the pictures on the same walls
    It's like she just went to the store
    And when you look into the mirror
    Does it make you miss her more?
    Win or lose, she was always on your side
    Never missed a match
    And when you see the moon, do you remember?
    She loved you there and back

    It's hard to know (know)
    What she would say (say)
    But I think she'd

    Want you to live like the world's on fire
    Want you to love like hearts don't break
    Never look down when you walk the wire
    Like she made it to forty-eight
    Still made your birthday cake (cake)

    (Want you to live)
    Oh, oh, oh
    (Want you to live)
    Oh, oh, oh
    (Want you to live, want you to live)

    Want you to live like the world's on fire
    Want you to love like hearts don't break
    Never look down when you walk the wire
    Like she made it
    She made it, ooh-oh

    Want you to live like the world's on fire
    Want you to love like hearts don't break
    Never look down when you walk the wire
    Like she made it to forty-eight
    Still made your birthday cake Writer/s: Daniel Alexander Berrios, Dylan Conrique, Sarah Emily Berrios
