Before I Die

  • I’m out here on my own
    I’m giving it a go alone
    I’m begging on my knees
    Is there a God to save me
    I’ve been a retched soul
    From my heart down to my toes
    I was lost in my disease
    And you were right there screaming

    Don’t change when it’s too late

    Maybe I said the right things wrong
    But one last shot was too far gone
    But if I can I swear that I
    Will live for you before I die
    Maybe I pushed you way too far
    To pull you back from where you are
    But if I can I swear that I
    Will live for you before I die

    From the valley of the dead
    I’m hearing every word you said
    I’m trying to apologize
    But I can’t feel my feelings
    Are you giving us some room to grow
    Or digging us a deeper hole
    You’re killing any shred of hope
    For us to believe in

    Don’t change when it it’s too late

    Maybe I said the right things wrong
    But one last shot was too far gone
    But if I can I swear that I
    Will live for you before I die
    Maybe I pushed you way too far
    To pull you back from where you are
    But if I can I swear that I
    Will live for you before I die

    I’m out here on my own
    I’m sick of being here alone
    I know where I belong
    But I can’t find my way home

    Find my way home
    Find my way home
    Find my way home
    Find my way

    Maybe I said the right things wrong
    But one last shot was too far gone
    But if I can I swear that I
    Will live for you before I die
    Maybe I pushed you way too far
    To pull you back from where you are
    But if I can I swear that I
    Will live for you before I die

    Will live for you before I die
    I will live for you before I die Writer/s: JACOBY DAKOTA SHADDIX, JAMES MICHAEL, JERRY ALLAN JR. HORTON, TOBIN JOSEPH ESPERANCE
