Living On Borrowed Time

Living On Borrowed Time
Words and Music by Sean O’Reilly

One too many on a drunken night
You know, I’m not quite sure
But I think I should have died
But I’m alive
Oh, I’m Living on Borrowed Time

Took one look at the car crash site
That tree put up one hell of a good fight
But I survived
Oh, I’m Living on Borrowed Time

No time for this laughing
That’s just to keep from crying
No time for this living
That’s just to keep from dying
I keep making problems,
The keep multiplying
‘Till I burn them down
Burn them down
Burn, burn, down to the ground.
It leaves me more lost than found
Oh, I’m Living on Borrowed Time

One screw loose and I’m wound up tight
My friends smoke up
But I get high on life
Burning from my peace pipe
Oh, I’m Living on Borrowed Time

No more time for wrong and right
I’m gonna have some fun
This bird’s about to take flight
Get in, let’s go for a ride
Oh, I’m Living on Borrowed Time

No time for this laughing
That’s just to keep from crying
No time for this living
That’s just to keep from dying
I keep making problems,
The keep multiplying
‘Till I burn them down
Burn them down
Burn, burn, down to the ground.
It leaves me more lost than found
Oh, I’m Living on Borrowed Time

So I’ve been living on borrowed time
Death could be knocking on my door
I’d know what for, but all I can think of tonight
Is when I was walking on the blade, walking ont eh blade
Of your sword
And you cut me down, you cut me down
Without a single word
So I know what I’ll do, I know what I’ll do
With my borrowed time.
I’ll look you in the eye 
I’ll tell you why
I die every time
That I try to make you mine
But hide like a child
What I’m feeling inside
And it leaves this desire
That burns me down, burns me down
Burn, Burn, down to the ground
It leaves me more lost than found
But I won’t back down
Next time around
Oh, I’m living on Borrowed time
