Lyrics – Alive

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

I fell into

The deep blue sea that’s drowning all of me

No turning back

Fell, I drowned, I felt for

All this time I’ve been wondering

What it is I’m missing

All this time to find what’s

Right before my eyes

*

I’m breathing, I’m alive for the first time now in a long time

I’m feeling I’m alive, feel a little life on the inside

*

Forget before

Nothing’s heavy anymore I

Left it all in deserts where I’ve been for

All this time I’ve been wondering

What it is I’m missing

All this time to find what’s

Right before my eyes

*

I’m breathing, I’m alive for the first time now in a long time

I’m feeling I’m alive, feel a little life on the inside

I’m breathing, I’m alive for the first time now in a long time

I’ve waited all this time just to feel a little life on the inside

*

Standing on the edge at last I’m

Breathing just for the first time

Been waiting here for

All this time I’ve been

Futilely looking for the next stop

All this time to find what’s

Right before my eyes

What am I to think now

Everything I knew but wasn’t real is

Here at last, dumbstruck, it’s all here waiting

Unassumingly

*

I’m breathing, I’m alive for the first time now in a long time

I’m feeling I’m alive, feel a little life on the inside

I’m breathing, I’m alive for the first time now in a long time

I’ve waited all this time just to feel a little life on the inside

*
