My feet on the ground but I can't run
Drowning the noise inside my head
Who is this man that I've become
It's killing me to see myself
How do you learn how to forgive
When deep down inside you can't forget
With all that I regret
And I pray for the first time in a long time
The lies fade away

Finally I'm waking up
I feel like I can let you go
Say everything I wanted to say
I'm ok with being alone
When I close my eyes
When I close my eyes

I'm alive
I never was sure but now I am
This was the choice I had to make
Maybe I'll never understand
Sometimes you've got to make mistakes

Finally I'm waking up
I feel like I can let you go
Say everything I wanted to say
IM ok with being alone
Finally I face it off
I feel like I can let it show
I know I can walk away
I'm ok with being alone
When I close my eyes
When I close my eyes
When I close my eyes

How do you know where to go when you go away

When I close my eyes

How do you know When it's over

I see for the first time in a long time
Believe me when I say

Finally I'm waking up
I feel like I can let you go
Say everything I wanted to say
I'm ok with being alone
Finally I face it off
I feel like I can let it show
I know I can walk away
I'm ok with being alone
When I close my eyes
When I close my eyes
When I close my eyes

I'm alive
