Lyrics

Borrowed Time

Written By: Elizabeth Claire Burke

V1:
Do the angels down in Texas live on wings and Rangers games?
Or do they dream of Paris in the spring?
And at night, do they come to Texans who are lying in their beds
Thinkin' "it's all the same,"
Child, it's not the same thing

Ch1:
Do you remember when we flew up near the sun?
You said "it doesn't burn at all, it feels fine"
At the rate you're going, you're gonna live forever
Forever on borrowed time
Livin' forever on borrowed time

V2:
Sometimes I go outside at night and look up at the stars
How come they look so much like silver when they're gold?
Like you- You're feeling like a fish,
Weighing the merits of the Journal or the Times-
in the end, you're still wrapped up and sold

Ch2:
Do you remember when we flew up near the sun?
You said "It doesn't burn at all, it feels fine"
At the rate you're falling now, you're gonna fall forever
Forever on borrowed time
Livin' forever on borrowed time

Br:
Despite myself, it's hard to think we're so far apart
That while we're both looking up at different skies, we're still
Looking at the same stars

Ch3/4:
Do you remember when we flew up near the sun?
You said it doesn't burn at all it feels fine
At the rate you're running, it'll be forever
Forever until you're mine
Do you remember when we flew up near the sun?
You said, "it doesn't burn at all, it feels fine"
At the rate you're going, sure, you're gonna live forever
Forever on borrowed time
Living forever on borrowed time
Living forever on borrowed time
