lyrics

heaven's not so easy to reach
when you're living a life
on borrowed time

this life it's been always a dream
like you're watching tv
not living life

what have i lost and what's gained
i was a sinner and i was a saint
but all the memories they seem so faint
when time's a thief

no shot wounds could go so deep
like the fear i feel when i can't sleep
but that was the deal that was reached
i now believe

heaven's not so easy to reach
when you're living a life
on borrowed time

although it's been always a dream
am i living a lie
on borrowed time

what i can't feel i can't see
but the films are so very real
so then why can't i see what i see
behind the light

what i can't see i can't feel
end of time is the end of a reel
end of time is the end of a reel
end of time

what i can't feel i can't be
will god forgive me
and will everything be redeemed
am i living a lie
