What I want and what I need
is everything that I'm supposed to be
I have my hopes, I've got my dreams
I had to fight for what is right for me

And other things that I expect
I take them all and I have no regrets
Life's too short, there's no rain check
Just one shot at it is all you get

I wanna live before I die
Don't want the world to pass me by
I wanna live, I wanna live before I die

You tell me this, you tell me that
They wrote the rules but that ain't where it's at
They only dare to tell me lies
And do I listen? I don't even try

And life's an act, the worlds a stage
I'm like an animal outta my cage
I'm runnin' wild, I'm runnin' free
Just one shot at it is all we need

I wanna live before I die
Don't want the world to pass me by
There's so much more I wanna try
I wanna live

I wanna live before I die
Don't want the world to pass me by
I wanna live, I wanna live before I die

I can't wait around, I just can't waste my time
I don't care if you think that I'm outta my mind

I wanna live before I die
Don't want the world to pass me by
There's so much more I wanna try
I wanna live

I wanna live before I die
Don't want the world to pass me by
I wanna live, I wanna live, I wanna live

I wanna live before I die
Don't want the world to pass me by
I wanna live, I wanna live before I die
