  • As I start to make
    My way back home
    Through the crowded streets
    With the people come and go

    All the faces that I see,
    They seem to show
    A standing ovation for you
    A standing ovation for you

    We're alive, now
    Let's just take our time, now
    Let's just make
    The most of every day we have,
    The most of every moment

    We're alive, now
    Let's not waste our time, now
    Let's just make
    The most of every breath we take
    The most of every second we're alive, oh
    'Cause we're alive, oh

    Out the window of a train
    The cities go
    By so fast just like the days
    I watched you grow (I've watched you grow)

    And one day you will walk away
    The more you know
    The standing ovations for you
    The standing ovations for you

    We're alive, now
    Let's just take our time, now
    Let's just make
    The most of every day we have,
    The most of every moment

    We're alive, now
    Let's not waste our time, now
    Let's just make
    The most of every breath we take
    The most of every second we're alive

    Can't you see
    The world is only a fee
    For you and me?
    And it's so right you got me

    'Cause even when I'm gone
    I'll never leave
    So go on
    And catch your dreams (catch your dreams)

    We're alive, now
    Let's just take our time, now
    Let's just make
    The most of every day we have,
    The most of every moment

    We're alive, now
    Let's not waste our time, now
    Let's just make
    The most of every breath we take
    The most of every second we're alive
    Oh, we're alive
    'Cause we're alive
    Oh, we're alive

    As I start to make
    My way back home
    I can't help but crack a smile
    'Cause I know
    The standing ovations for you
    The standing ovations for you Writer/s: BENJI MADDEN, JOEL MADDEN, JOHN FELDMANN
