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]

    I love this song, because I dedicate it to my son. Without him I probably would never have quit drinking. He saved me the day he "came alive". It's amazing what can happen when you look into your child's eyes and realize you need a change...for them.

    You have to be born again to come alive. So, when you believe in jesus in your heart and confess with your mouth that you have done so, go under water (symbolizes buried/dead) of baptism and rise up from the water (symbolizes true coming alive) -mark.d

    When i was broken and broken hearted i met
    The man of my dreams. He was also broken hearted. We found a new life together. As we were falling in love he played this for me. I cried and we looked at each other and knew. Knew we had found each other and ourselves again the day each came alive for one another. It's corny but true.
