lyrics

I WON’T DIE

Six o’clock in the mornin’
And I can’t wait to get my day goin’
I’ve been sleepin’ and dreamin’
Now it’s time to get up with the sun

Rise, rise above the ashes of yesterday’s deeds undone
Every day’s a blessing and I must confess
That I’ve been wasting so many but now I’m ready to rest
My soul in peace knowing I’ve done what I came to do.
Oh dear God, please give me the strength to follow through.

My song has to be sung
From the heart and the lungs
Before I leave I’ve got to speak my truth

I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me

I blink it’s already sundown
And I’ve still got so much to do now.
This is the one and only moment
Where we get to keep the magic unfoldin’.

My mind’s been telling me what it’s been thinking about
Trying to figure out how but I don’t want that doubt
To creep in and ruin all the visions I’ve been havin’
So I imagine it already happened.
You can make a wish but if you don’t believe it won’t come true
Or you could have it all before you plant the seed you taste the fruit.

My song has to be sung
From the heart and the lungs
Before I leave you know I’m speakin’ my truth

I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me

I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
I know what I’m supposed to do now
I’ve got this feelin’ and I’ve got to let it out.
Yeah, I know what I’m supposed to now
I’ve got this feelin’ and I’ve got to,
I’ve got let it out.

It’s almost midnight there’s a full moon
Outside my window this day’s gonna be over soon
I count my blessings and say thank you
For this life I know I can’t give too much gratitude.

Before I was born into this world I had no form
And then I came into the shape they gave
And the name they named me.
Like a lion in a cage, asleep with no escape
Livin’ like a slave but now I’m wide awake.
Now I’m free and howlin’ with my voice I choose to use it
And no one else can tell this story like I do, yes.

My song has to be sung
From the heart and the lungs
Before I leave you know I’m speakin’ my truth

I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me

I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
