I want to burn out bright
Does it have to start with a broken heart
Broken dreams, bleeding heart
We were young and the world was clear
Young ambition disappears
I swore it would never come to this
The average, the obvious
How I'm still discontented down here
I'm still discontented

If we've only got one try
If we've only got one life
If time was never on our side
Then before I die I want to burn out bright
I want to burn out bright

So a spark ignites in time and space
Limping through this human race
You bite and claw your way back home
But you're running the wrong way
The future is a question mark
Of kerosene and electric sparks
There's still fire in you yet
Yeah there's still fire in you

If we've only got one try
If we've only got one life
If time was never on our side
Then before I die I want to burn out bright

I keep cleaning up the mess I've made
I keep cleaning up the mess I've made
I don't want to run away
I can't sleep in the bed I've made
I can't sleep in the bed I've made

If we've only got one try
We've only got one try
If we've only got one life
We've only got one life
If time was never on our side
Time was never on our side
Then before I die I want to burn out bright
Before I die I want to burn out
Before I die I want to burn out
Before I die I want to burn out bright
If time was never on our side
Then before I die I want to burn out bright
