To Know That You're Alive

Album: To Know That You're Alive (2008)
  • Will the situation bring you around?

    The black of night is closing all around you
    The crippling fear moves in as they strap you down
    Will you let 'em only get the best of you
    Or will the situation bring you around
    When the blood stains dry
    Will it bring you around
    Or will it pass you by

    Right now you're bruised and bleeding
    I see the hurt within your eyes
    I know your pain is for a reason
    You need to feel just to know that you're alive

    The days have turned to weeks but it is not over
    The bandages rewind you to where you've been
    These memories will remind you
    When life takes you out, will it bring you around
    When it's said and done, will it bring you around
    What will you become?

  • Pieter from Empangeni, South AfricaI can totally relate to this song. I can't play rugby anymore due to torn ligaments in both of my knees. God used this to let me turn to him and now I am a church singer, dedicating this talent to helping people find God in all of their ways.
  • Erik from Nonya, Pakutless is an amazing band! they need more credit!
