08. Burn Out Brighter (Northern Lights)

New Surrender
by Anberlin



 

Live, I wanna live inspired
Die, I wanna die for something

Racing towards the heavens
I fell into a pitch black
Iím moments from landing and Iím shaking like a heart attack

Is there time, can I turn back
Iíve made mistakes in the past
Need a chance, canít take it back
Wish I could set things right tonight

Live, I wanna live inspired
Die, I wanna die for something higher than myself
Live and die for anyone else
The more I live I see this lifeís not about me

All I know spins out of control
Wonder whatís next for a heart and soul
Nothing I earned can save me now
Hear in what may be my final hour

Is there time, can I turn back
Iíve made mistakes in the past
Need a chance, canít take it back
Wish I could set things right tonight

Live, I wanna live inspired
Die, I wanna die for something higher than myself
Live and die for anyone else
The more I live I see this lifeís not about me

Donít wanna leave this world knowing I breathed in vain
Looked out for myself, so sorry so ashamed
Donít wanna leave this life knowing I barely tried
Chased all my dreams that I hid away on the inside

Live, I wanna live on fire
Die, I wanna burn out brighter
Brighter than the Northern lights
Wanna live to feel the daylight
The more I live I see that this lifeís not about me

Christian ∑ Milligan ∑ McAlhaney ∑ Anberlin

Behind the Song:
'Nathan was flying home from LA and his plane started to basically free fall, to the point where people were screaming and throwing up. The bigger man next to him was crying and grabbed Nateís hand. He thought he was going to die.

I rewrote this song so many times that if it were a man I would have punched it. I couldnít stand this song, and Neal made me rewrite it literally 17 times, after Nathan told me the story I was inspired to take it and write it as if I were in the plane and my final thoughts.

Northern Lights, right out side of Asheville, NC is where I got on one knee.' - Stephen Christian
