  • Don't wanna live as an untold story
    Rather go out in a blaze of glory
    I can't hear you, I don't fear you
    I'll live now 'cause the bad die last
    Dodging bullets with your broken past
    I can't hear you, I don't fear you now

    Wrapped in your regret
    What a waste of blood and sweat
    Oh-oh-oh

    I wanna taste love and pain
    Wanna feel pride and shame
    I don't wanna take my time
    Don't wanna waste one line
    I wanna live better days
    Never look back and say
    Could have been me
    It could have been me
    Yeah

    Don't wanna live as an unsung melody
    I'd rather listen to the silence telling me
    I can't hear you, I won't fear you
    Don't wanna wake up on a Monday morning
    The thought of work is getting my skin crawling
    I can't fear you, I don't hear you now

    Wrapped in your regret
    What a waste of blood and sweat
    Oh-oh-oh

    I wanna taste love and pain
    Wanna feel pride and shame
    I don't wanna take my time
    Don't wanna waste one line
    I wanna live better days
    Never look back and say
    Could have been me
    It could have been me
    Yeah

    Hey
    I wanna taste love and pain
    Wanna feel pride and shame
    Don't wanna take my time (no)
    Don't wanna waste one line (hey, hey)
    Wanna live better days (just better)
    Never look back and say
    Could have been me
    It could have been me
    It could have been me
    It could have been me
    I wanna taste love and pain
    Wanna feel pride and shame
    I don't wanna take my time
    Don't wanna waste one line
    I wanna live better days (just better)
    Never look back and say
    Could have been me
    It could have been me
    It could have been me
    It could have been me
