  • I've tasted fire I'm ready to come alive
    I can't just shut it up and fake that I'm alright
    I'm ready now, I'm not waiting for the afterlife

    I'll let it burn the way the sunlight burns my skin
    The way I feel inside, the way the day begins
    I'm ready now, I'm not waiting for the other side
    I'm ready now, I'm ready now

    'Cause everyday the world is made
    A chance to change, but I feel the same
    And I wonder why would I wait till I die to come alive?
    I'm ready now, I'm not waiting for the afterlife
    Yeah!
    I still believe we could live forever
    You and I we begin forever now
    Forever now
    Forever

    I still believe in us together
    You and I we're here together now
    Forever now
    Forever now
    Or never now

    'Cause everyday the world is made
    A chance to change, but I feel the same
    And I wonder why would I wait till I die to come alive?
    I'm ready now, I'm not waiting for the afterlife

    Everyday
    A choice is made
    Everyday
    I choose my fate

    And I wonder why would I wait till I die to come alive?
    To come alive?

    Everyday
    Everyday
    Everyday I still feel the same
    And I wonder why would I wait till I die to come alive?
    I'm ready now, I'm not waiting for the afterlife

    I'm ready now, I'm ready now, I'm ready now, I'm ready
    I'm not waiting till the afterlife

    Yeah!
    Yeah!
    Yeah! Writer/s: JON FOREMAN, TIM FOREMAN
