Born to Die

This song is by Black Stone Cherry and appears on the album Kentucky (2016).

Momma was a moon, daddy was a sun
I'm a man shot down by a law man's gun
All must die and baby look my way

He said listen to me son while you still can
You've gotta take life's cards with a loving hand
You can never fight another day

Because we're born to die
In this life, when its time
Think about what you leave behind
You've got a love for life
Take your time, make it right
Before you go, you can shine a light
Guard your promise, close your heart
Told my secret to the stars
Now I know the reason why
We're born to die

I was fifteen, yeah I knew it all
I tried to run before I knew how to crawl
And couldn't nobody seem to make me understand

But in this life you've got to pick your fights
And even if you loose you've got to know you tried
Sometimes you've got to fall before you dance

Because we're born to die
In this life, when its time
Think about what you leave behind
You've got a love for life
Take your time, make it right
Before you go you can shine a light
Guard your promise, close your heart
Told my secret to the stars
Now I know the reason why
We're born to die

Because we're born to die
In this life, when its time
Think about what you leave behind
You've got a love for life
Take your time, make it right
Before you go you can shine a light
Guard your promise, close your heart
Told my secret to the stars
Now I know the reason why
We're born to die
Born to die
