lyrics

THE LIFE I DIDN’T LIVE

The life I didn’t live
The tricks I didn’t learn
The kids I didn’t have
The page I didn’t turn
The love I didn’t give
The seas I didn’t sail
The people who I’ve left
The moments that I failed
All I didn’t have
Makes it pretty clear
Everything that’s left
Is all what matters here
I know that more is less
It took a while to learn
Ambition brought me here
And now it’s time to burn
Burn the fears and thoughts
Breathing in the air
Close my eyes and see
Everything is there
The life I didn’t lead
Slowly disappears
Now is all there is
Nothing interferes
The life I didn’t live
The tricks I didn’t learn
The kids I didn’t have
The page I didn’t turn
The love I didn’t give
The seas I didn’t sail
The people who I’ve left
The moments that I failed
The life I didn’t live
The tricks I didn’t learn
The kids I didn’t have
The page I didn’t turn
The life I didn’t live
The tricks I didn’t learn
The life I didn’t live
The life I didn’t live
The life I didn’t live
The life I didn’t live
The life I didn’t live
The life I didn’t live
The life I didn’t live
The life I didn’t live
