Escape The Fate - Picture Perfect Lyrics

You lived your life like you were on fire
But how can I dance when your soul just lifted me higher and higher and higher?

Paint bleeds, ink runs, image of your love
Your memory, our history
(Why did you have to go?)

I'd give up my eyes to see you one last time
And I'd give all my fingertips to touch you
And I could paint you picture perfect even if I were blinded
But you have to die for me to see how to live

(For me to see how, for me to see how oh
For me to see how, for me to see how to live)

I lived my life hiding in shadows but now I can see
'Cause your soul is lifting me higher and higher and higher

Paint bleeds, I can't breathe, need you here with me
Close my eyes I can feel you close
(Why did you have to go?)

I'd give up my eyes to see you one last time
And I'd give all my fingertips to touch you
And I could paint you picture perfect even if I were blinded
But you have to die for me to see how to live

Angels fall
It's not your fault
Time goes on without you
Goodbye old friend
We'll meet again
Life goes on without you

(Why did you have to go?)

I'd give up my eyes to see you one last time
And I'd give all my fingertips to touch you
And I could paint you picture perfect even if I were blinded
But you have to die for me to see how to live

(For me to see how, for me to see how oh
For me to see how, for me to see how to live)

  1. BM TH

    My fav music 2020 💔

  2. Autumn Nelson

    why did you have to go
    now I'm blind by depression
    I can not breath
    I can't not sleep
    I can't eat
    I can't see how to live
    there no one left to save me
    but I wont give up this time
    I'm sorry but I have to go
    because there is nothing left
    we bleed and we grind
    I might have to give up my life
    just to see how to live
    time will go on without me
    good bye my love
    even angels have to go
    not worry it's not your fault
    we will met agin
    the light lifts me higher and higher
    Now I'm blind
    by my past
    and my heart may be broken
    I still have a chance to live agin
    why did you have to go

    I'm trying to make my own song every like will get me to post it out into the public eye

    This song is so underrated just like the band they should be so much bigger then this

  9. jakesigno

    I love Escape The Fate for reasons like this, they are so diverse. They have songs such as Ungrateful and This War Is Ours and on the other hand this song and something (the song)🤘🤘🤘

  10. Viper Strike Studios

    This song could be the song that plays right after the music video for "ungrateful"

  11. Tamara Louise

    I wanted to play this at my grandmother's funeral (the words were incredibly accurate to how she lived her life and how her death affected me)

    Unfortunately I was denied such a request. So my friends rocked up to the funeral with this song screeching out of their car windows.

    Thankyou for creating such a beautiful song

  12. Rimra Kadafi

    To watch the innocent die in one person can cause others to live again, Watching an innocent struggle causes more death then life. Means there attempting to keep themselves truely innocent while going threw hell on earth. While other watch an start dying off. Innocent can only live watching others die at times, so they know the mistake others made an where not to, its called learning esp when its new grounds or territory there walking on.

  74. Christopher Calhoun

    Honestly didn’t even know etf was still playing music, haven’t listened to any of their music since the first album they released after they dropped Ronnie and picked up Craig. Mostly because I am not much of a fan of Craig’s vocals, didn’t even like blessthefall until they lost Craig and nicked up bo. I don’t even know why. He can sing I’m not knocking his talent at all just my opinion.

  75. That one sad Honda
