Lived a Lie

  • Well somebody told me
    That I would be a dreamer for life
    Somebody told me I would never reach the other side
    Well you say I'm old news
    But cross your fingers, I'm yours to lose
    What if I told you things will never improve?

    And if I lived a lie
    Will someone meet me on the other side
    So I can burn up bright?
    So I can burn, so I can burn

    The grass is always greener
    Someone else's past is always cleaner
    But I'm a believer that there's a fool in all of us

    And if I lived a lie
    Will someone meet me on the other side
    So I can burn up bright?

    Oh, I don't really know where our ghosts go
    No, I don't really know where our ghosts go
    So live a lie just tonight, tonight

    We are believers, we are believers
    We are believers, we are believers
    We are believers, we are believers
    We are believers, we are believers
    We are believers, we are believers
    We are believers, we are believers
    We are believers, we are believers
    We are, we are

    If I lived a lie
    Will someone meet me on the other side
    So that I can burn up bright?

    And if I lived a lie
    Will someone meet me on the other side
    So I can burn up bright?

    Oh, I don't really know where our ghosts go
    No, I don't really know where our ghosts go
    So live a lie just tonight
    And burn up brightWriter/s: CHRISTOPHER JAMES MILLER, DANIEL DAVID FLINT, JOSH JAMES ALPHONSE FRANCESCHI, MATTHEW JAMES, MAX MICHAEL HELYER
