  • You lived your life like you were on fire
    But how Can I Dance, when your soul just lifted me
    Higher and higher and higher

    Paint bleeds, ink runs, image of your love
    Your memory, our history (Why did you have to go?)

    I'd give up my eyes to see you one last time
    And I'd give all my fingertips to touch you
    And I could paint you picture perfect even if I were blinded
    You have to die to see me how to live

    (For me to see how, for me to see how oh,
    For me to see how, for me to see how to live)

    I live my life hiding in shadows but now I can see
    'Cause your soul is lifting me
    Higher and higher and higher

    Painfully, I can't breathe, need you here with me
    Close my eyes I can feel you close (Why did you have to go?)

    I'd give up my eyes to see you one last time
    And I'd give all my fingertips to touch you
    And I could paint you picture perfect even if I were blinded
    You have to die to see me how to live

    Angels falls
    It's not your fault
    Life goes on without you
    Goodbye old friend
    We'll meet again
    Life goes on without you

    (Why did you have to go?)

    I'd give up my eyes to see you one last time
    And I'd give all my fingertips to touch you
    And I could paint you picture perfect even if I were blinded
    You have to die to see me how to live

    (For me to see how, for me to see how oh,
    For me to see how, for me to see how to live) Writer/s: Craig Mabbitt, John William Feldmann, Michael Money, Monte Money, Patrick Stump, Robert Ortiz, Thomas Bell
