I wasnt born this way
I been living a lie they say
Somebody brought me to my knees well, I had everything
So tell me would you please, how could I possibly have needed, so much more

The thing I was craving
Was some kind of lady
So I might find a friend
and all the aching in my muscles as they hurt oh wont you put my hands to work to ease my mind

And you realise in a moments grace
you've been unravelling the fabric of your coat
And you pick a line down the (wall?) and trace
till the end
and when you walk back sorry with a fallen body like you should
no im not gonna die this way

Maybe it was was the mould you see
that was knocking the wall in me
that I forgot just what it was that
i had needed to be for all the time id given
maybe i forgot what livin was now for

and you realise in a moments grace
you might just already be onto something good
and you pick a line on a (call?) and trace
because you can
and when it comes back heavy
youll be more than ready like you should
Cause i am not gonna die this way

Through a crack in the road it sprung
a seedling warm and young
stretching out for the sun
its almost in, im giddy.
for this time I might be winnin
as the moving lights that time of year lay still
and as my body changes pace I seem to know again that Im not gonna die this way
oh Ill hold my misses in a bed of kisses like I should
'Cause I'm not gonna die this way
