One Less Day (Dying Young)

Album: Chip Tooth Smile (2019)
  • I'm not afraid of getting older
    I'm one less day from dying young
    I see the light go past my shoulder
    I'm one less day from dying young

    I see my life like a train with a one-way track
    I've made mistakes, and I couldn't take 'em back
    And I've been runnin' 'round in circles 'til I'm dizzy, I can't lie
    But every night I go to sleep's a day that I survive

    I'm not afraid of getting older
    I'm one less day from dying young
    I see the light go past my shoulder
    I'm one less day from dying young

    And I've seen my friends fall away before their time
    And I've been afraid that I may follow in their light
    So I drink and love and whisper all the things I know are right
    Someday, I will leave this world, but maybe not tonight

    I'm not afraid (I'm not afraid) of getting older
    I'm one less day (I'm one less day) from dying young
    I see the light (I see the light) go past my shoulder
    I'm one less day (I'm one less day) from dying young
    I'm one less day (I'm one less day) from dying young (yeah!)

    All my life I have been wandering
    Burning up my candle like my time just won't end
    And I'll keep burning 'til there's nothing left
    Praying that tomorrow I can do it all again
    And if I get tomorrow, I will do it all again

    I'm not afraid of getting older
    I'm one less day from dying young
    And I see the light go past my shoulder
    I'm one less day from dying young

    I'm not afraid (I'm not afraid) of getting older
    I'm one less day (I'm one less day) from dying young (from dying young)
    I see the light (I see the light) go past my shoulder
    I'm one less day (I'm one less day) from dying young (from dying young!)
    I'm one less day (I'm one less day) from dying young (from dying young!)
    Hey!

    (I'm one less day from dying young) (I see the light)
    (I'm one less day from dying young)
