"I Don't Wanna Die Anymore" as written by and Gregg Alexander....
Two months of fun
Two years of pain
Add it up
And get a life of rain
Need to scream
But too ashamed
It's gonna rain it's gonna rain
You wanna go you wanna stay you wanna
You really blew my world
I wanna live and there's only one way

I don't want to die anymore
I want to live it up
I don't want this high anymore
But I can't give it up
I won't live a lie anymore
I need to give you up

Won't you save me
Two months of sun
A life of rain
Add it up
I'm on my own again
Need to scream
I'm so filled with rage
It's gonna rain it's gonna rain
You wanna go you wanna stay you wanna
You really screwed my world
I gotta live but you stand in the way
I'm pullin' out now uh

I don't wanna die anymore
I want to live it up
I don't want this high anymore
But I can't give it up
I won't live a lie anymore
I need to give you up

And oh oh baby did you think that I was strong?
Well oh oh honey can't you see that you were wrong
Oh oh baby did you think that I was strong?

    General CommentI think this is another break up song. I think he is saying that he had two months of fun (sun) with this person and now he is trying (unsuccessfully to get over it)...2 years of rain. He wants to get on with it "i gotta live, but you stand in the way", but he cannot.

    General Commentmaybe its me, but i think it's about giving up some sort of drug addiction, or alcoholism....

    General Commentthis song is about my life....or at least, it seems to describe exactly what's going on in my head right now.
    I think this song is about how something in life is really upsetting him and he feels that he can't do anything....until now, he's felt that life isn't worth living so he's been pondering death. but he remembers the rare times in life when he enjoys himself somehow, so just so he can have that small amount of happiness part of the time, he will endure the rest of his life that is painful. donno if I described it well enough, don't think I did....but anyway. that's my take on it.

    General CommentThe start of a relationship. Might not be very deep, but things seemed fine in the beginning. After that, the fun went away and all you're left with is pain.

    This is about realizing you need to give up what you thought was working and really isn't. Eheh.. it really speaks about my own life as well.

    General Commentthe majority of people seem think this is about gregg finally getting over an addiction to something, be it drugs alcohol or a woman but i think its about him not being able to get over it and give up. he's saying he knows he should but just cant no matter what he does.

    but thats just the way i see it

    General CommentYeah I'd have to agree with selfishisgorgeous. He wants to get over it and change, but he can't give it up, he doesn't feel like he is strong enough to. "I don't want this high anymore
    But I can't give it up"--basically he's torn.
    Love the song.

    General CommentI think this song doesn't necessarily have to be about a drug. It could be a high that you experience from anything that might not be necessarily good for you. He is saying that he want to live but doesn't know how to give up this thing that he knows is destroying his life. I think this is something we all can relate to.

    General CommentI always assumed it was either simply heroin addiction (both the references to not wanting to die and the "pulling out now") OR a deliberately vague combination of that and a woman... it COULD be simply about a relationship, but there's too much darkness to be "just" about that.
