Rebirthing

  • I lie here paralytic
    Inside this soul
    Screaming for you till
    My throat is numb
    I wanna break out

    I need a way out
    I don't believe that it's gonna be this way
    The worst is
    The waiting
    In this world I'm suffocating

    Feel Your presence
    Filling up my lungs with oxygen
    I take You in
    I've died

    Rebirthing now
    I wanna live forever
    Wanna live for You and me
    (Breathe for the first time now
    I came alive somehow)

    Rebirithing now
    I wanna live my life
    Wanna give You everything
    (Breathe for the first time now
    I came alive somehow)

    Right now
    Right now

    I lie here lifeless
    In this cocoon
    Shedding the skin 'cause
    I'm ready to
    I wanna break out
    I found a way out
    I don't believe that it's gonna be this way
    The worst is
    The waiting
    In this world I'm suffocating

    Feel Your presence
    Filling up my lungs with oxygen
    I take You in
    I've died

    Rebirthing now
    I wanna live forever
    Wanna live for You and me
    (Breathe for the first time now
    I came alive somehow)

    Rebirithing now
    I wanna live my life
    Wanna give You everything
    (Breathe for the first time now
    I came alive somehow)

    (I came alive somehow)
    Tell me when I'm gonna live again
    Tell me when I'm gonna breathe you in
    Tell me when I'm gonna feel inside
    Tell me when I'm gonna feel alive

    Tell me when I'm gonna live again
    Tell me when this fear will end
    Tell me when I'm gonna feel inside
    Tell me when I'll feel alive

    Rebirthing now
    I wanna live forever
    Wanna live for You and me
    (Breathe for the first time now
    I came alive somehow)

    Rebirithing now
    I wanna live my life
    Wanna give You everything
    (Breathe for the first time now
    I came alive somehow)

    (I came alive somehow) right now!
    (I came alive somehow) right now!

  • AnonymousI agree, for me as a struggling catholic I must not go back to the world but overcome it
  • Pieter from Empangeni, South AfricaI agree with Jeffrey. When you decide to follow God, you are immediately finding yourself in a new life. That moment when you give your life and your troubles to God, you are rebirthing in Him. Being baptized comes after that, and baptism is the symbol that you want to take that extra step to show your dedication that you definitely want to continue with your earlier decision to follow God and rid yourself of your previous sins.
  • Juliet from Polokwane, South AfricaRebirthing--->born again! "The old has gone and the new has come" that's how I see the song! Finding Jesus, giving your life to Him and being washed in His blood...creating in you a new person! The old you must die first for the new you to be born...and that's exactly what's happening in this song! "Feel your presence filling up my lungs with oxygen, I take you in! I've DIED! Rebirthing now, I wanna live for love, wanna live for you in me! Breathe, For the first time now, I come alive somehow"
  • Jeffrey from Lockport, Ili understood the song as it was just a person who found God, and decides to follow him (the line "i wanna live for love, i wanna live for you in me, rebirthing now, i wanna live my life, i wanna give everything" but i never got the since that this person was being baptized, but every1 understands i song in a different way, even if its something minor...
  • Jake from Columbia City, InSkillet RULEZ. There need to be more Christian bands like them.
  • Janet from Orlando, FlI love the song but sometimes I think 'Why cant people just enjoy the songs dang!' but i got curiouse of their meaning's!^^
  • Alex from Fresno, CaThis song is about how life is suffocating him. He is making the choice to live his life for a greater purpose (God) and now he can finally relax.
