#20 | I Don't Wanna Die Young

LYRICS

I’ve been throwing down on tables for the longest time 

risking everything I have is just the way I fight 

I’ve been high enough taste it low enough to crave it

Looking for something I might not ever find 

 

I’ve felt the rush enough to know just what it’s really worth 

Held the gold and saw the lights before it was a curse 

I’ve been bold enough to chase mad enough to waste it

Running from the day it’s my turn

 

I don’t wanna die young 

and give into the battle while it’s still on 

bury who I am cos I gave up

I’m running for my life 

Cos 

I don’t wanna die young 

 

I’m carrying the heavy till the days done 

Praying I’m ready when the time comes 

I’m running for my life

Cos

I don’t wanna die young 

 

I’ve heard the echoes of words that people throw around 

and felt energy of envy tryna beat me down 

I’ve been hit enough hang on kicked enough stand strong 

Been through every battle I can handle more 

 

It feels good when it keeps on giving 

But you wake up when the you lose your winnings 

When every bone in your body feels done 

But you heart keeps picking you up 

 

I don’t wanna die young 

and give into the battle while it’s still on 

bury who I am cos I gave up

I’m running for my life 

Cos 

I don’t wanna die young 

 

I’m carrying the heavy till the days done 

Praying I’m ready when the time comes 

I’m running out of time 

Cos

I don’t wanna die young 

 

It hangs over my head

It weighs down on my chest 

 

I’m not who I could be

Doubt is a wild beast

 

I’m broke

But not weak 

 

I don’t wanna die young 

and give into the battle while it’s still on 

bury who I am cos I gave up

I’m running for my life 

Cos 

I don’t wanna die young 

 

I’m carrying the heavy till the days done 

Praying I’m ready when the time comes 

I’m running out of time
