Telling Layla's story spoken
'Bout how all her bones are broken
Hammers fall on all the pieces
Two months in the cover creases

Fully alive
More than most
Ready to smile and love life
Fully alive
And she knows
How to believe in futures

All my complaints shrink to nothing
I'm ashamed of all my somethings
She's glad for one day of comfort
Only because she has suffered...

Fully alive
More than most
Ready to smile and love life
Fully alive
And she knows
How to believe in futures

Fully alive
More than most
Ready to smile and love life
Fully alive
And she knows
How to believe in futures

Fully alive
More than most
Ready to smile and love life
Fully alive
And she knows
How to believe in futures

Fully alive
More than most
Ready to smile and love life
Fully alive
And she knows
How to believe in futures

    i tink this song is talking about someone she knows named layla. and how she is suffering more than her but she doesnt realize it. also the chorus is touching i think its saying that she is going to be ready to smile and love life. mabey that means eternal life. and also when it says. fully alive now she knows how to believe in futures. that means she knows how to believe in the greatest future ever... heaven. theres a lot more i can say to this song but im running out of time.

    So Bittersweet is actually right. Her and her mom use to fight a lot and social services took her away to her wealthy grandparents in Lousinanna and she got depressed and hated her life and only now shes realizing how great her life is.

    I'm not sure exactly what is wrong with her, but Lacey wrote the song because she was so impressed by Layla (wife of Kevin Palmer of Trust Company) and how she remains so positive and hopeful in whatever her obviously hard life brings her.
    "All my complaints shrink to nothing" Lacey sees that this person has huge obstacles in her life and her own, which are smaller fade in comparison. It's about taking what you have, no matter how small it may be, and being appreciative and happy for it.

    Lacey is talking about how she has gone through many things in life but understands that other people are going through a lot more serious issues than she has.
