Lyrics To Live Your Life To – Part 2

A couple of years ago I published a post of some of my
favourite lyrics, which you can find here. Since then, a lot more music has
been released, so I thought I’d do a part 2 to that post, with a collection of
new lyrics.
Long live the reckless and the brave
Who do you want to be tonight?
We’re all architects of our own private hell
Don’t take another step along the same road
All I am is wrong these days
Dream a little bigger
I struggle to find the sense in making sense
I was born, I have lived, I will surely die
These streets don’t feel like home to me
Long live the kids in us all
Hard to shine when they don’t notice you at all
There’s a fool in all of us
A little evil goes a long, long way
We are the good youth, we deal in dead truths
I wish for small things
I just close my eyes and dance inside my head
I’ll fight til my blood runs cold
We’re alive, but just for a moment
I won’t cross these streets until you hold my hand
Are we gonna live forever? No
I found rebellion in self-destruction
Let’s un-write these pages and replace them with our own
I’d wait here forever just to see you smile
I’m half crazy, or just cracked up
We are the wrong and guilty, we are the young and the
What are you so scared of?
In the end we’re all left wondering who we are
Young and unemployable, lonely, drunk and beautiful
Say you’ll never change
If they give you hell, tell ‘em go fuck themselves
Perfect’s never perfect
With age comes insecurity, embarrassment and tragedy
If you dish it out you’ve got to learn to take it
I’m not the kind of girl to trip and fall in love
What happens next? Who cares
I’m bruised but I’m not broken
This ain’t a fairytale
Beyond repair, without a care, I’ll let the dark in
Don’t you forget about me
I feel a little lost in this room
I’m scared to get close and I hate being alone
This is the sound of a lost generation
A touch of wicked, a pinch of risqué
When did I get so lost inside my head
We’re all just weird kids in the end
Your lost boy, your last chance, your everything-better plan
If you’re a freak like me, don’t apologise
Even forever doesn’t last that long
When will the princess figure it out, she ain’t worth saving
We are the broken
Every chapter is part of a story with an unwritten ending
Welcome to the nightmare in my head
Dance alone to the beat of your heart
You’re a risk worth taking
I pray that things are getting better, but I won’t hold my
If all you wanted was somebody to hear you out
All the times that we messed up
This is me, 23, king of my own destiny, I will be fine
I need a little room to breathe
For all I know we’re all just ghosts
I’m not an angel
If you want me now I’ll make your life a living hell
I’m moving on to better things
As I get older my future hasn’t got any clearer to me
I’m turning away from the ghost of you
Trust me, I’m a mess, but I beat myself best
So I can burn out bright
I can’t drown my demons, they know how to swim
The truth is I’m as lost as I was before
I’m always living in my head
I am no king, I have no throne
I taught myself to live without you around
Stop fucking around with my emotions
I don’t think I want to be saved
We are young and we are free; my god that’s still good
enough for me
We could be a story in the morning, but we’ll be a legend
I miss the days I used to know I had a place
We are the brightest of sparks
I’m not going to die on my knees
When you’re down, keep swinging
We are believers
