Live and Die
The Avett Brothers Lyrics


All it'll take is just one moment and
You can say goodbye to how we had it planned
Fear like a habit, run like a rabbit, out and away
Through the screen door to the unknown

And I want to love you and more
I want to find you and more
Where do you reside when you hide?
How can I find ya?

'Cause I want to send you and more
I want to tempt you and more
Can you tell that I am alive?
Let me prove it

You and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
Hear my voice, know my name
You and I, we're the same

Live like a pharaoh
Sing like a sparrow anyway
Even if there is no land or love in sight
We bloom like roses, lead like Moses, out and away
Through the bitter crowd to the daylight

And I want to love you and more
I want to find you and more
Can you tell that I am alive?
Let me prove it to ya

You and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
You rejoice, I complain
But you and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
You and I, we're the same
Hear my voice, know my name
You and I, we're the same

I want to love you and more
I want to find you and more
Where do you reside when you hide?
How can I find ya?

'Cause I wanna save you and more
I wanna tempt you and more
Can you tell that I am alive?
Let me prove it

You and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
You rejoice, I complain
But you and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
You and I, we're the same
Hear my voice, know my name
You and I
You and I

All it'll take is just one moment and
You can say goodbye to how we had it planned
Fear like a habit, run like a rabbit, out and away
Through the screen door to the unknown

And I want to love you and more
I want to find you and more
Where do you reside when you hide?
How can I find ya?

'Cause I want to send you and more
I want to tempt you and more
Can you tell that I am alive?
Let me prove it

You and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
Hear my voice, know my name
You and I, we're the same

Live like a pharaoh
Sing like a sparrow anyway
Even if there is no land or love in sight
We bloom like roses, lead like Moses, out and away
Through the bitter crowd to the daylight

And I want to love you and more
I want to find you and more
Can you tell that I am alive?
Let me prove it to ya

You and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
You rejoice, I complain
But you and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
You and I, we're the same
Hear my voice, know my name
You and I, we're the same

I want to love you and more
I want to find you and more
Where do you reside when you hide?
How can I find ya?

'Cause I wanna save you and more
I wanna tempt you and more
Can you tell that I am alive?
Let me prove it

You and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
You rejoice, I complain
But you and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
You and I, we're the same
Hear my voice, know my name
You and I
You and I

They are great people and deserve so much more than most of the bands out there for they have real talent. When I was 9, just a few months after my dad died I got to go backstage and meet them. They asked what my favorite song of theirs was and I said "the song that you say rabbit in." (Live and Die) and they actually changed a song they were going to play at the concert so they could sing "Live and Die" at the concert. After I left backstage to watch the concert, they dedicated the song to me. I will forever remember and I love these guys so much!!

Several years ago my boyfriend saw The Avett Brothers at Firefly. He innocently came to me and said, "You MUST hear this band." And showed me this video. Me, who adores the banjo, this type of music, and men who look like this.
Clearly, he was not thinking ahead. My obsession cannot be stopped. He created a monster.

This is exactly what happened to me. He just didn't think it through hahaha. <3

Me too, but it was my husband probably 10-11 years ago. I am so obsessed with them too! I am 62 years old and think they are so cute!!

Peggy Gibbons

SAME! :) But it was my daughter.
