the kiss of life lyrics – dear hunter

hope was closing with my eyes,
down the shallow grave i was lying
then i heard someone say you’ll be stuck here forever,
but i prayed it wasn’t forever
’cause you were leaning over me,
clutching memories of when i was alive,
and then you breathed life into me one last time.
but i prayed it wasn’t the last time,
because it would be so wonderful to see your starry eyes again.

[chorus:]
give me more than the things that i’ve lived for
i’m only echoes of the man that i’m supposed to be
because i want more of the things i’d die for
i want to feel it in my soul

now that you’ve unburied me
dust me off and carry me home
and i beg you sing life to me again
i promise this won’t happen again
because it would be so wonderful to see your starry eyes again

[chorus]
