Seems like only yesterday
Life belonged to runaways
Nothing here to see, no looking back
Every sound monotone
Every color monochrome
Life began to fade into the black
Such a simple animal
Sterilized with alcohol
I could hardly feel me anymore

Desperate and meaningless
All filled up with emptiness
Felt like everything was said and done

I lay there in the dark, and I closed my eyes
You saved me the day you came alive

Still I try to find my way
Spinning hours into days
Burning like a flame behind my eyes
Drown in out, drink it in
Crown the king of suffering
Prisoner, a slave to the disguise
Disappear the only thing
Bittersweet surrendering

Knew that it was time to say goodbye

I lay there in the dark and I closed my eyes
You saved me the day you came alive
No reason left me to survive
You saved me the day you came alive

Come Alive [x33]

I lay there in the dark and I closed my eyes
You saved me the day you came alive

Come Alive [x15]

Nothing more to give
I can finally live
Come alive

Your life into me
I can finally breathe
Come alive

I lay there in the dark
And opened my eyes
You saved me the day you came alive

Come Alive [x11]

    Lookin back over the last year, this song pretty much sums it up. I was married with 3 kids, living miserably. I wasn't drinking, but I was drowning in misery. Got so bad that I became increasingly unbearable all the time. My marriage was ending. I had the un-enviable task of leaving. I knew it was time to say good-bye. Loved them so much that I couldn't let them see me continue to live the way I was living. I moved out and my current gf "came alive" into my life. She doesn't believe me, but she has saved me from doing some very horrible things. She's made me realize how much I love life and love my kids. Now we have our own little baby. So to her I say, "your life into me, I can finally breathe, come alive!
