Sam Fischer – I Got To Live lyrics

What would I say if one day I wake
All of a sudden, I’m there at that gate
The end of my life, no time for goodbyes
And I didn’t get to try everything twice

I’d say, “Why’d it have to be me?
Why’d I have to go like this
Know we hardly ever speak
But you could’ve given me notice”
So thank God it’s all in my head
‘Cause I ain’t done breathing just yet

I hope I don’t go before it’s my time
Before I can show what I’ll do with my life
My wife would be sad and keep asking why
My mom would be mad ’cause that’s just what she’s like
But I hope that someone remembers me well
That my messed up stories are good ones to tell
Don’t get to decide, but if I did
I wouldn’t die before I got to live

Mm, mm, mm

I wanna know what it’s like
To see 91 candles alight
Surrounded by the people who still love me
Even though I’ve never looked so ugly
It’s the end of my life and that’s fine
At least I could say my goodbyes

I hope I don’t go before it’s my time
Before I can show what I’ll do with my life
My wife would be sad and keep asking why
My mom would be mad ’cause that’s just what she’s like
But I hope that someone remembers me well
That my messed up stories are good ones to tell
Don’t get to decide, but if I did
I wouldn’t die before I got to live

Mm, mm, mm, before I got to live
Mm, mm, mm

Why’d it have to be me?
Why’d I have to go like this?
Know we hardly ever speak
But you could’ve given me notice
So thank God it’s all in my head
‘Cause I ain’t done breathing just yet

I hope I don’t go before it’s my time
Before I can show what I’ll do with my life
My wife would be sad and keep asking why
My mom would be mad ’cause that’s just what she’s like
But I hope that someone remembers me well
That my messed up stories are good ones to tell
Don’t get to decide, but if I did
I wouldn’t die before I got to live

(Oh, oh, oh, oh) Oh, before I got to live
(Oh, oh, oh, oh) Yeah, oh, before I got to live
(Oh, oh, oh, oh) Mm
(Oh, oh) I wouldn’t die before I got to live
