Borrowed Time



Lyrics

Do we need to start a war
Do we need to take the sign
If we open up our eyes
Realize that we are blind

Is it all worth fighting for
It all comes down to
Who's wrong or right
Who's black or white
It doesn't matter what you're bleeding for

Straight or bi
Your God or mine
It doesn't matter underneath it all

Cause we're only here to love
Like there's no tomorrow
So let's live each moment like
Our time is only borrowed
Our time is only borrowed
Our time is only borrowed

Do we need to build a bomb
Do we need to fire a gun
If you have to stand your ground
It's a war that can't be won

Is it all worth fighting for
It all comes down to
Who's rich or poor
Virgin or whore
It doesn't matter what you're praying for

Death, alive
Your truth or mine
It doesn't matter underneath it all

Cause we're only here to love
Like there's no tomorrow
So let's live each moment like
Our time is only borrowed
Our time is only borrowed
Our time is only borrowed

Is it all worth fighting for
It all comes down to
Who's rich or poor
Virgin or whore
It doesn't matter what you're praying for

Death, alive
Your truth or mine
It doesn't matter underneath it all

Cause we're only here to love
Like there's no tomorrow
So let's live each moment like
Our time is only borrowed
Our time is only borrowed
Our time is only borrowed
