I heard you crying, somebody stole my soul.
How could I be dying? I turned twenty five days ago.

We’re all on the ground just crying out.
Somebody save me please.
I won’t sit aorund just thinking about the troubles that tommorrow brings

I’m dying to be alive, yeah.
I’m dying to be alive, yeah.
Lets not go through our lives.
Without just dying to be alive.

The people you’ve touched, the way you’ve touched them
I hope they’ve touched you too, ’cause in this life,
It’s hard to tell what’s false and what is true.

We’re all on the ground,
Just crying out would somebody save me please.
I won’t sit around just thinking about
The troubles that tommorrow brings

I’m dying to be alive, yeah
Not trying to just survive, yeah.
Lets not go through our lives
Without just dying to be alive

And we all come tumbling down.
No matter how strong we all return to the ground
Another day gone, a day closer to fate.
Soon we’ll find it’s a little too late.

Too late, yeah

Na Na Na-na
Na Na Na-na
Na Na Na-na Na
Na Na Na-na
Na Na Na-na
Na Na Na-na na

The things you see, the way you see them.
Will never been seen again
Let’s go through life livin’ on luck
Betting ten thousand to ten

Mistakes I’ve made in this life
Can’t even see why or when
But the thing that’s strange is
You only live once, I’ll never look back again

I’m dying to be alive, yeah
Not trying to just survive, yeah
Lets not go through our lives
I’m just dying to be alive

Dying to be alive, yeah
Not trying to just survive, yeah
Let’s not go through our lives
I’m just dying to be alive

And we all come tumbling down
No matter how strong we all turn to the ground.
When the day’s gone, say “why did I wait?”
Can’t just leave your life to fate
Gotta turn it ’round before it’s too late
