When I Die
The Revivalists Lyrics


When it’s late at night and dark as hell
Where I’m going to well you know damn well
I ain’t got nobody else to blame
'Cause you know it’s my fault and ain’t it a shame

The pearly locks on the pearly gates ain’t just for show make no mistake
Can nothing I do in this life of sin make it up enough to ever get me in

So when I die I know in my life
I ain’t done things well tried to do things right
It’s been a long dark road and try as I might
I can’t make it any closer to the golden light, the golden light

I’m a long lost soul meant to toil all day
Inmate of my mind, with nothing to say
You can’t break those chains so let them be
I’m not the one who ever held this key
There’s one thing that I know for sure
No matter what I do, there is no cure
For the things I’ve said, the things I’ve done
There’s only one chance it’s his only son

So when I die I know in my life
I ain’t done things well tried to do things right
It’s been a long dark road and try as I might
I can’t make it any closer to the golden light

I’m close to the edge I lit my soul on fire

So when I die I know in my life
I ain’t done things well tried to do things right
It’s been a long dark road and try as I might
I can’t make it any closer to the golden light
I’m close to the edge and holding on
All I can do is set my soul on fire with the golden light
