Lyrics

NEVERDIE

Written By: Tomomi Hiroishi

NEVERDIE

Day and night, in and out and through a maze of dream and reality
I don't even recognize you now
As the light in your eyes, disappear

Now you’re lost in a world in an endless loop
A rerun of the same old show

What if I told you it’s all real, oh no
The life you have always dreamt you’d live
Is the life you were meant to lead
To the neverdie

Do you remember the days when you used to live your life by the second
Nothing else mattered but the vision in your mind
Making the world in your eyes, disappear

And the speeding world seemed would last for life
But then forever ended yesterday

What if I told you it’s all real, oh yeah
The days you dreamt got lost between your life? The strife?
No, you were meant to live
And now you’ll never

And now you’ll never…
Die

What if I told you it’s all real, oh no
The life you have always dreamt you’d live
Is the life you were meant to live,
So come with me,
To the neverdie

Paradise

Written By: Tomomi Hiroishi

When all else fails
You fall back to pretending
And act like nothings ending
“There’s nothing wrong with pretending”

They say he’s always waiting, high above the clouds
But so is our lost friend
Deep beneath this so called paradise

Would you agree?
Would you call this a your paradise?
Will you fight to stay?
And live to die?
Would you call this your paradise?
Call this your paradise?

I open my eyes
And everywhere I find to see
Lies in all affection
Hate in all direction
Even in my reflection
So I close my eyes
Now I don't see
Just like everyone else

There’s you and me
Yeah, we might lie some times
Act like nothings happening
Look the other way when they’re crying

But all in all
We are all the same
We hate some times
But we know we can fall for love from time to time

Will I fight for this?
Live to die?
Well give me one reason not to
This is my paradise
My paradise
