I remember a time when all was bright
when no one said a word someone else didn't like
the point of living was not to get ahead
but to be in love, have friends, and be accepted
i swear there was a time when i did not lie
i never said a word someone else didn't like
my life had a rythym, beating and wild
i'd yet to meet love, i was still alive

to love is to die
to love is to die

it's always at night that i think of the light
wanting, missing, holding you tight
i swear it's the only time i've felt alive
you're gone...

to love is to die
to love is to die
i want to be alive
to love is to die
bring me to life
as i die, as i die

i remember a time when all was bright
i looked to the sky on a beautiful night
admiring the moon, i wished for love
wishes never come through, they're never enough
but this time i died of love
to love is to die

-  I also wish you w... (more »)
