I was born in a thunder storm, I grew up overnight
I played alone, I played on my own
I survived

I wanted everything I never had, like the love that comes with light
I wore envy and I hated that
But I survived

I had a one way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don't change and nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope just lies, and you're taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived

I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing
I'm alive, I'm alive
I'm alive, I'm alive

I found solace in the strangest place, way in the back of my mind
I saw my life in a stranger's face
And it was mine

I had a one way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don't change and nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope just lies, and you're taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived

I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing
I'm alive, I'm alive
I'm alive, I'm alive

You took it all, but I'm still breathing [x8]

I have made every single mistake that you could ever possibly make
I took and I took and I took what you gave, but you never noticed that I was in pain
I knew what I wanted, I went out and got it
I did all the things that you said that I wouldn't
I told you that I would never be forgotten, and all in spite of you

I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing
I'm alive, I'm alive
I'm alive, I'm alive

I'm alive, I'm alive
I'm alive, I'm alive
