Track Name: Dying To Live
Dying To Live

Beep Beep, 6 AM
It’s the same old song and dance
By the time you get to 9
All your dreams don’t stand a chance

One more day and you’re feeling locked in
Your heart clocked out before you even clocked in

Ooh ooh
You tell me that you’re trying just to live
But you’re dying to live a little more
Whoa, Ooh
But Ooh Ooh
You can be anything, you can be everything
So what you waiting for?
Whoa, Ooh
You’re dying to live

Lonely girl in the world
With her mouth around a silver spoon
Mom and Dad and all they had
A little love could not come too soon

18 candles, she can make her
Great escape, if they don’t break her


Doesn’t it tear you up inside?
Doesn’t it leave you wanting more?
You never know until you try
What’s behind that open door
