Like There’s No Tomorrow

Insert the knife of life
Into the last breath of death
Let it bleed what you need
And as it soaks into your chest
Tear apart you heart
And unbreak every ache
Twist your dreams until they scream
Wring out every mistake

Then love, baby love
Like there’s no tomorrow
And love, baby love
Like there’s no time left to borrow
Put hope into the hurt and joy back in the sorry
And love, baby love
Like there’s no tomorrow

Take the pain from the tear stains
Remove the ears from your tears
Wipe the lies from y our eyes
And when the one that’s true appears

Then love, baby love
Like there’s no tomorrow
And love, baby love
Like there’s no time left to borrow
Put hope into the hurt and joy back in the sorry
And love, baby love
Like there’s no tomorrow

Don’t wish upon a star
That’s not how dreams come true
Just reach up from where you are
And grab the one that’s meant for you

Then love, baby love
Like there’s no tomorrow
And love, baby love
Like there’s no time left to borrow
Put hope into the hurt and joy back in the sorry
And love, baby love
Like there’s no tomorrow
