cassie (acoustic) lyrics – flyleaf

the question asked in order to save her life or take it.
the answer ‘no’, avoiding death and ‘yes’ would make it.

‘do you believe in god?’ written on the bullet.
say yes to pull the trigger and my sister, c*ssie, pulled it.

they didn’t love their lives so much, as to shrink from death.
inspired in their footsteps, we will march ahead.
don’t be shocked that people die.
be surprised you’re still alive.

all heads are bowed in silent reverence.
the floor is wet with tears of sorrowful remembrance.
the alter’s filled with hearts of repentance.
perfect love kills all fear.
rejoice in this deliverance!

they didn’t love their lives so much, as to shrink from death.
inspired by their footsteps, we will march ahead.
don’t be shocked that people die.
be surprised you’re still alive.
