Awake and Alive (The Quickening)

Track

Appears on: Album
Lyrics:

V1
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

Chorus
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 now
I'll stand my ground and never back down
I know what I believe inside
I'm awake and I'm alive

V2
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

Bridge
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
