  • I'm at war with the world and they
    Try to pull me into the dark
    I struggle to find my faith
    As I'm slippin' from your arms

    It's getting harder to stay awake
    And my strength is fading fast
    You breathe into me at last

    I'm awake I'm alive
    Now I know what I believe inside
    Now it's my time
    I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life
    Here, right here
    Right now, right now
    Stand my ground and never back down
    I know what I believe inside
    I'm awake and I'm alive

    I'm at war with the world cause I
    Ain't never gonna sell my soul
    I've already made up my mind
    No matter what I can't be bought or sold

    When my faith is getting weak
    And I feel like giving in
    You breathe into me again

    I'm awake I'm alive
    Now I know what I believe inside
    Now it's my time
    I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life
    Here, right here
    Right now, right now
    Stand my ground and never back down
    I know what I believe inside
    I'm awake and I'm alive

    Waking up waking up
    Waking up waking up
    Waking up waking up
    Waking up waking up

    In the dark
    I can feel you in my sleep
    In your arms I feel you breathe into me
    Forever hold this heart that I will give to you
    Forever I will live for you

    I'm awake I'm alive
    Now I know what I believe inside
    Now it's my time
    I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life
    Here, right here
    Right now, right now
    Stand my ground and never back down
    I know what I believe inside
    I'm awake and I'm alive

    Waking up waking up
    Waking up waking up
    Waking up waking up
    Waking up waking up Writer/s: Brian Howes, John Cooper

  • [p3yt0n} from Somewhere, InGreat song. I think this song has a good message. "Stand back up, and never back down." meaning never let people take your faith away, and fight for it.
