Still Breathing

Album: Revolution Radio (2016)
  • I'm like a child looking off on the horizon
    I'm like an ambulance that's turning on the sirens
    Oh, I'm still alive
    I'm like a soldier coming home for the first time
    I dodged a bullet and I walked across a landmine
    Oh, I'm still alive

    Am I bleeding am I bleeding from the storm?
    Just shine a light into the wreckage, so far away, away

    'Cause I'm still breathing
    'Cause I'm still breathing on my own
    My head's above the rain and roses
    Making my way away
    'Cause I'm still breathing
    'Cause I'm still breathing on my own
    My head's above the rain and roses
    Making my way away
    My way to you

    I'm like a junkie tying off for the last time
    I'm like a loser that's betting on his last dime
    Oh, I'm still alive
    I'm like a son that was raised without a father
    I'm like a mother barely keeping it together
    Oh, I'm still alive

    Am I bleeding, am I bleeding from the storm?
    Just shine a light into the wreckage, so far away, away

    'Cause I'm still breathing
    'Cause I'm still breathing on my own
    My head's above the rain and roses
    Making my way away
    'Cause I'm still breathing
    'Cause I'm still breathing on my own
    My head's above the rain and roses
    Making my way, away, away

    As I walked out on the ledge
    Are you scared to death to live?
    I've been running all my life
    Just to find a home that's for the restless
    And the truth that's in the message
    Making my way, away, away

    'Cause I'm still breathing
    'Cause I'm still breathing on my own
    My head's above the rain and roses
    Making my way away
    'Cause I'm still breathing
    'Cause I'm still breathing on my own
    My head's above the rain and roses
    Making my way, away, away
    'Cause I'm still breathing
    'Cause I'm still breathing on my own
    My head's above the rain and roses
    Making my way, away
    My way to you Writer/s: BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG, MIKE RYAN PRITCHARD, FRANK EDWIN WRIGHT III, ADAM RICHARD LESLIE SLACK, LUKE SPILLER
