Lyrics To Live Your Life To

I believe the music people listen to can tell you a lot about them, who they are, who they want to be, who they perceive their self as or who they think others perceive them as. In particular, the lyrics show a lot of characteristics and traits. They may have been written by someone else, but lyrics resonate with people, reaching out to them through shared experiences and emotions. These are just some of my favourite lyrics. There’s probably a lot more that I like, I just can’t remember them all right now. I’m not sure what all of them say about me, so take from them what you will.

This is the anthem for a dying breed

Caught up to realise that I’ve been left behind

Holding on to promises and trusting a few

Tell me how to feel like we did when we were young

We were the kings and queens of promise

These lessons that we learned here have only just begun

Time to give them what they’re waiting for


We’re just trying to find some colour in this black and white world

We are lovers lost in space

She had the most amazing smile

You never got to heaven but you got real close

I’m the option you shouldn’t have chosen

Life’s a bitch but I’m friends with her sister

I smile at all my enemies; I lead a life of positivity

I’m married to the music, for better or for worse

I believe in the finer things and you don’t believe in me

We are just the sinners, we’re condemned to death

You can’t edit me

You won’t get better than me

You were fake, I was great – nothing personal

The taste of your lips says we shouldn’t have met like this

Long live the reckless and the brave

We try to run away but end up running back

When you sold me out I must have not got the cheque

Don’t hold your breath; I’m not losing sleep over you

Good luck with killing time, you won’t be killing mine

I’d rather be anywhere but here without you

I’ve got real big plans and such bad thoughts

They’re gonna miss me when I’m dead and gone; they’re gonna talk about me over and over and over

It’s not called lazy it’s called an art

I’ll never know divinity; so inadequately I write in meter and verse

Falling in love for the night

Tongue like electric, eyes like a child

Young and in love; that should be enough

Down but not out

Go back to anything, cos I know you’ll think of me

Three whole words and eight letters late

Maybe it’s not my weekend but it’s gonna be my year

I’m over getting older

This is my reaction to everything I feel

When it all comes down to a sunrise on the east side, will you be there to carry me home?

We ran like vampires from a thousand burning suns

We raced the sunset and we almost won

The surface shines while the inside rots

Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer

I’ll be your shelter, I’ll be your storm

Bring on the rain, and bring on the thunder

You can be the distance in between; you can be everything I need

Jealous minds are thinking alike, but you’re my damn damn tie wasting all my time; you are in love

Throw it away, forget yesterday; we’ll make the great escape

The answers that we’ll never find; they don’t mean a thing tonight

Everybody knows there’s a party at the end of the world

I haven’t made my bed for weeks and I’m not gonna get up

If we stand for nothing, we’ll fall for anything

I’ll do my best to always be on your mind

No one is looking for you anymore cos that was us

We’ll be the leaders of a messed-up generation

We’ll still be dancing when we’re old and we’re grey

You’re not on my list of things to do, cos I’ve already done you

Your favourite enemy and your most hated friend

Where’s your passion? Where’s your fire tonight?

I’m gonna start a revolution of convoluted disillusions

Sometimes fate and your dreams can collide

You’re just a daydream away

It was your world baby and I just lived in it

In the end we all know we only breathe for so long
