a kiss before dying lyrics – candlebox

i can’t quite breathe alone
the patience pressing harder still
have i lost my call
my fantasies all unfulfilled?
what can i liken to these seas?
a kiss before may bury me
to drown within a day is closer than you think

i find less time for those that can’t forgive me
i find it hard to keep my hands from shaking
just one more kiss before the dying
i won’t get out
i won’t get out alive

it’s all uphill from here
i’ve walked 1,000 miles have you
the final cut to slip, but never had the follow through
a vagrant of song melodies
a kiss before my tendencies
i carry a blade to keep the scars that never wash away

i find less time for those that can’t forgive me
i find it hard to keep my hands from shaking
just one more kiss before the dying
i won’t get out
i won’t get out alive

through time my memories have jaded
the innocence of child has faded
i break the chase the ones that left me
all alone

i find less time for those that can’t forgive me
i find it hard to keep my hands from shaking
just one more kiss before the dying
i won’t get out
i won’t get out alive

just one more kiss before the dying
i won’t get out
i won’t get out alive
i won’t get out alive
i won’t get out alive
