A Life to Die For Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level kalicious
1. Hell Comes Down From Heaven
Now and then I look upon the sky… but why?
Yet another day is passing by… oh my
Not so sure what I am waiting for at your door
For a little faith in you? No more!

Have you ever showed a single sign… divine
Have you ever heard a word of mine… of mine
Will you ever look me in the eye and lie?
Will you share a tear the day I die?

Can you try and tell me why from the sky
Your hell comes down from heaven
Everyday an endless play’s staged away
While hell comes down from heaven
Go insane and spread the pain: let it rain
Let hell come down from heaven

You created life… it’s such a mess, I guess
It never bothered you, couldn’t care less… oh yes
I give up – you let me down… agree? You see
Thanks a lot, your hell comes down on me

Again and again… a part of your plan: again and again
Your hell comes down from heaven
2. A Bullet´s Tale
Always dreamed to be The One but thousands just like me
Were created for this gun. So how it’s gonna be?
Enjoy the view until the day we meet
I’m chasing you

Way too small to bear a name but thought it could be yours
Doesn’t matter, just the same – no shortages in wars
So round and round we go until the day
You’re going down

Now you’re trying so hard to deceive me
But whatever you do – believe me:
You can run but you’ll never leave me… it’s a bullet’s tale
Getting closer… just to remind you:
Be aware, I am right behind you
Go wherever you go – I’ll find you… it’s a bullet’s tale

A bit of led, a bit of brass, some magic stuff inside
Here I go – a final blast – a short yet pleasant ride
No cheers, no prize… just take your final breath
And close your eyes
3. Running Out Of Tears
Hear me out: the game is over, it’s enough
Talk about broken promises… so tough
All these days been spend on piling up regrets
Every phrase just seems as pointless as it gets

Running out of tears after all these years
Moving on against the flow
Running out of tears and hopes and all my fears
Now time has come to let you go

Running out of tears as the smokescreen clears
Who’s to blame? I guess you know
Running out of tears, my heartache disappears
Now time has come to let you go

Keep it all… and most of all those sleepless nights
It’s your call, I’ve had enough of endless fights
Close the door cuz this is never gonna be
As before, so you can through away the key

When the night is getting colder I hear your voice, but so unclear
Looking back over my shoulder and watch you slowly disappear
4. One Minute Left To Live
How many minutes left to live? How many breaths to take?
How much to keep, how much to give, how long you’d stay awake?
I do believe that once you’re gone –
There is no coming back
No second chance an no re-run –
A simple fade to black
You tell me – is it or there’s something I should know?

One minute left to live so where do you go
Regretting what you’ve done and everything you’ve ever said?
One minute left to live and –
What do you know? –
I wouldn’t change a thing
I just keep on riding straight ahead
One minute left to live but what do you care?
Regretting that you’ve done and everything you’ve ever said?
One minute left to live – regardless, I swear
I wouldn’t change a thing, just keep on riding straight ahead

I’ve been around, I’ve seen it all – no pity, no remorse
I did my bit and fought the wall, kicked down a lot of doors
So if the end is near – just bring it on I have no fear
5. Sign Of Yesrerday
We’re looking for changes but what if there’s nothing more to find?
Surrounded by strangers while all what we’ve had is left behind
What are you looking for? Still afraid?
Not anymore

No reason, no goodbye – just walk away… I see it as a sign of yesterday
As right behind us tables turning, bridges burning – look another way
So little to forgive, so much to say… just leave behind this sign of yesterday
Above it all the sun is blazing while erasing every single sign of yesterday

One way or another we seem to forgive and then – forget
I’m looking no further for ways to return…
At least not yet
What are waiting for?
Go ahead and close the door
6. Won´t Trust, Won´t Fear, Won´t Beg
So many times before I felt the world came crushing down
And all around me slowly melt across entire town
Right there you’d kneel and pray
To someone up there with a crown… or wish yourself away
While growing up I quickly learned –
You always hold your ground
And never leave a stone unturned – you better stick around
We’re born and die alone, so learn to make it on your own
I won’t trust, won’t fear, won’t beg I’m telling you:
At last – forgive, forget – the words which I knew
As they were branded on my mind
But now it’s all what I can find:
Won’t trust, won’t fear, won’t beg for the rest of my life
I won’t trust, won’t fear – that page’s remaining unsigned
Whoever tells you to retreat is messing with your head
The fight’s not over when you’re beat but only when you’re dead
Don’t let them shred your life to bits
By now you should have learned
Who never wins? The one who quits at the point of no return
7. A Life To Die For
how many times you felt so weak
you let them keep you down?
how many times your simples
hopes and dreams got kicked around?

do you remember that?
do you remember that?

how many times you closed your eyes and said: "i'll get there soon"?
how many times you didn't dare..
kept howling at the moon

throughout entire night
throughout entire night

but what if there's a way to make it all undone?
a second chance to go back where it all begun?

if you could have a life
to die for
in front of you, behind
the next door

no effort and no fight
this one you've won
goes on and on and on

if you could have a life
to die for

i wish you'd use it right
and no more
regrets because tonight
the game is on
and on and on
and on and on


so many times you saw the best
in life just pass you by
so many times you walked away
without asking why

how could you let it go?
how could you let it go?

so many times you really wanted to but couldn't reach
so close yet far away... enough to hear tho hoir preach:
you're never gonna win
you're never gonna win

but what if there's a way to make it all undone?
a second chance to go back where it all begun?

if you could have a life
to die for

in front of you, behind
the next door
no effort and no fight
this one you've won
goes on and on and on

if you could have a life
to die for

i wish you'd use it right
and no more
regrets because tonight
the game is on
and on and on
and on and on
and on and on

you're in for a minute
so take it or leave it

but what if there's a way to make it all undone?
a second chance to go back where it all begun?

if you could have a life
to die for

in front of you, behind
the next door
no effort and no fight
this one you've won
goes on and on and on

if you could have a life
to die for

i wish you'd use it right
and no more
regrets because tonight
the game is on
and on and on
and on and on
and on and on

if you could have a life
to die for

in front of you, behind
the next door

no effort and no fight
this one you've won
goes on and on and on
