Before I Die


Let me live

Before I die

I’m tired of watching

Life pass me by

 

I can’t go to the grave

With the music still in me

Failing miserably

To fulfil my destiny

 

I want to visit places

I’ve only seen on TV

Fulfilling dreams

I can no longer see

 

I want to fall in love

Have my heart set on fire

Be enveloped in a kiss

Laced with passion and desire

 

I want to party till dawn

In some Nashville bar

Downing tequila

Strumming air guitar

 

I want to dance

In the purple rain

Feeling liberated

And young again

 

I want to gorge on burgers

Served with fine wine

With no thought

For my waistline

 

I want to ride rollercoaster’s

Without shutting my eyes

On fast bendy tracks

Riddled with wonder & surprise

 

I want to lay down each night

Feeling happy & satisfied

Not always succeeding

But knowing I tried

 

Before I die, I want a life

Punctuated with beauty

I won’t go to my grave

With the music still in me

  A Nightmare Disguised As a Daydream Those blood red lips Thick black hair Mustn’t succumb to temptation But I’m already there ...
