I was born and I died and just a moment went by
I was a son and a brother, I stared out over the water
Waves crashed on the shore
This is the day that I was born

I burn on, I burn on
Autumn gold beneath my feet
I burn on, I burn on
Walk through the city while it sleeps
I burn on, I burn on
This is the day that I was born

Caught snowflakes on my tongue
I thought I knew what love was
A thousand pushpins in a map only to prove I could exist
Don't hold on too hard to the way that everything was

I burn on, I burn on
Endless summer in my heart
I burn on, I burn on
I'm not afraid to fall apart
I burn on, I burn on
This is the day that I was born

My eyes are fading
Half-lives spilled on handwritten pages
She's already sleeping
I'll just lay here and listen to her breathing

Autumn gold beneath my feet
Endless summer in my heart
This is the day that I was born

I was born and I died and just a moment went by

    General CommentThis is by far the best song on Metropole, for me it isn't even a contest, this is the kind of song that The Lawrence Arms are at their best at. It's got a deep meaning to it I think. Not really sure what i think it means, but maybe it could possibly be existentialism on a birthday?
