burn out brighter (northern lights) lyrics – anberlin

live, i wanna live inspired
die, i wanna die for something

facing towards the heavens
i fell into a pitch black
i’m moments from landing and i’m shaking like a heart attack

is there time, can i turn back
i’ve made mistakes in the past
need a chance, can’t take it back
wish i could set things right tonight

live, i wanna live inspired
die, i wanna die for something higher than myself
live and die for anyone else
the more i live i see this life’s not about me

all i know spins out of control
wonder what’s next for heart and soul
nothing i earned can save me now
hear in what may be my final hour

is there time, can i turn back
i’ve made mistakes in the past
need a chance, can’t take it back
wish i could set things right tonight

live, i wanna live inspired
die, i wanna die for something higher than myself
live and die for anyone else
the more i live i see this life’s not about me

don’t wanna leave this world knowing i breathed in vain
looked out for myself, so sorry so ashamed
don’t wanna leave this life knowing i barely tried
chased all my dreams that i hid away on the inside

live, i wanna live on fire
die, i wanna burn out brighter
brighter than the northern lights
wanna live to feel the daylight
the more i live i see that this life’s not about me
