Athenaeum — Lifeline lyrics

You can find a way
To stop thinking about it
When every minute is a lifetime
The pain will go away
You won't believe but it's true
Just count the inches on your lifeline
And I hate to be the one
Telling you that everything's OK
Cause what kind of god would give you life
And take it all away?
Oh but I don't wanna be in your life
If you don't
And I don't wanna wake in your arms
If you won't
Be alive when I need you the most
Not to say that I won't
Grieve a little when you pass away
When you pass away
You can find a place
And start thinking about it
When every second is the right time
The pain will go away
You won't believe but it's true
Just count the inches on your lifeline
And I hate to be the one
Telling you that everything's OK
Cause what kind of god would give you life
And take it all away?
Oh but I don't wanna be in your life
If you don't
And I don't wanna wake in your arms
If you won't
Tell me everything you needed to be
Is everything that I am
Everything that you fear
About me
What you fear about me
You'll come back for all the wrong reasons
Maybe your life was out of season
You can't breathe
When you don't have a reason to die
And someday soon when the memory has faded
We'll defend all the lives we once hated
And I'll be there baby glad that you made it alive
I don't wanna be in your life
