So Alive

  • Feeling like a hero, but I can't fly
    No, you never crash if you don't try
    Took it to the edge, now I know why
    Never gonna live if you're too scared to die
    Gonna disconnect from the hardwire
    Time to raise a flag for the ceasefire
    Staring down the hole inside me
    Looking in the mirror
    Making peace with the enemy

    Hey hey-ey-ey (hey)
    Hey hey-ey-ey
    I'm so alive, I'm so alive, I'm so alive
    You can make it on a wish if you want to
    You can make it on a wish if you want to
    I'm so alive, I'm so alive, I'm so alive (hey)
    You can make it on a wish if you want to
    You can make it on a wish if you want to

    Open up my heart like a shotgun
    Blinded by the light of a new sun
    Get up, get up, get out and get done
    For the first time I feel like someone
    Breaking down the walls in my own mind
    Keeping my faith for the bad times
    Get up, get up, stand like a champion
    Take it to the world
    Gonna sing it like an anthem

    Hey hey-ey-ey (hey)
    Hey hey-ey-ey
    I'm so alive, I'm so alive, I'm so alive (hey)
    You can make it on a wish if you want to
    You can make it on a wish if you want to
    I'm so alive, I'm so alive, I'm so alive (hey)
    You can make it on a wish if you want to
    You can make it on a wish if you want to

    I am no man of steel
    I have no heart of stone
    Don't tell me how it feels
    I'll find it on my own

    Never gonna live if you're too scared to die

    I'm so alive, I'm so alive, I'm so alive (hey)
    You can make it on a wish if you want to
    You can make it on a wish if you want to
    I'm so alive, I'm so alive, I'm so alive (hey)
    You can make it on a wish if you want to
    You can make it on a wish if you want to
    I'm so alive, I'm so alive, I'm so alive
