Before We Die

Corridors that lead nowhere,
Swimming an endless sea,
Broken hearts served with apple tarts,
It’s all too much for me.

You and I,
Will someday fly,
Further than they’ve been.
Before we die,
You and I,
Will see more than they’ve seen.

Dreams we make that only break,
Wake me from this sleep.
Love so true I give my heart to you,
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do.

You and I,
Will someday fly,
Further than we’ve been.
Before we die,
You and I,
Will see more than we’ve seen.

And these should be the best days of our lives.
These should be the best days of our lives.
These should be the best days of our lives.
These should be the best days of our lives.
If we could only start living outside of our minds.
