To make thee mine I cast a net as wide as I am free
Line by line, erase the schemes that I have drawn to be
There's no fear anymore, is to learn the truth soon to be
There's no fear anymore, burn the bridge outside

If I'm gonna live, if I'm gonna live without you
If I'm gonna live, if I'm gonna live without you
If I can live without you, I feel alone walking home all by myself
I've never chased a brighter sun than you'll become

I mistook you for a trust, invocations I must dust off
Fresh bouquets to lay for me first

Even though you've seen the show I've saved the best for last
A cannonball shot stern to bow to warn the crowd
I fall in love from my guts, my arms are twined to switch
And in repose, a solemn rose burns the bridge outside

If I'm gonna live, if I'm gonna live without you
If I'm gonna live, if I'm gonna live without you
If I'm gonna live, if I'm gonna live without you

To make thee mine I call upon the wisdom of my age
Blow by blow I chase the bees of the death song's wings
There's no crying anymore, missed a line, the bridges burn outside
Stitches will all come undone

If I'm gonna live, if I'm gonna live without you
What comes must all come out at once of us
If I'm gonna live, if I'm gonna live without you
I've never chased a brighter sun than you'll become
It comes before the breaking dawn but I'm on its side
