we die

I sing most every night
when the lights are low and we all die
and we die most every night
we die we die we die

we die when the lights are low
because that is how our story is told
we die when the strangers leave
in a morning full of bad ideas

our hearts fall right out of our chest
so it’s out on the porch for our last breath
and inside with the rising sun
we all fall down one by one

So one thing I’ve learned my friends
is that all good times have to end
and when those times come around
we burn we burn we burn them down

I’m ready to resign
to any number you assign
one thing I’ll promise thine
is I’ll live I’ll live tonight
