  • Do you dream
    That the world will know your name
    So tell me your name
    And do you care
    About all the little things
    Or anything at all
    I want to feel
    All the chemicals inside
    I want to feel
    I want a sunburn
    Just to know that I'm alive
    To know I'm alive

    And don't tell me if I'm dying
    'Cause I don't want to know
    If I can't see the sun
    Maybe I should go
    Don't wake me 'cause I'm dreaming
    Of angels on the moon
    Where everyone you know
    Never leaves too soon

    And do you believe
    In the day that you were born
    Tell me do you believe
    And do you know
    That every day's the first
    Of the rest of your life

    And don't tell me if I'm dying
    'Cause I don't want to know
    If I can't see the sun
    Maybe I should go
    Don't wake me 'cause I'm dreaming
    Of angels on the moon
    Where everyone you know
    Never leaves too soon

    This is to one last day in the shadows
    And to know a brother's love
    This is to New York City angels
    And the rivers of our blood
    This is to all of us
    To all of us

    And don't tell me if I'm dying
    'Cause I don't want to know
    If I can't see the sun
    Maybe I should go
    Don't wake me 'cause I'm dreaming
    Of angels on the moon
    Where everyone you know
    Never leaves too soon

    Yeah you can tell me all your thoughts
    About the stars that fill polluted skies
    And show me where you run to
    When no one's left to take your side
    Don't tell me where the road is
    'Cause I just don't want to know
    No I don't want to know

    And don't tell me if I'm dying
    Don't tell me if I'm dying, yeah
    Don't tell me if I'm dying Writer/s: CLAYTON STROOPE, SCOTT JASON
