It's late and I am tired
Wish I could spark a smile
The place is flying high but right now I wanna be low
Don't wanna move an inch
Let alone a million miles
And I don't wanna go but I know I gotta go

I just want to feel alive

The times you don't wanna wake up
'Cause in your sleep it's never over when you give up
The sun is always gonna rise up
You need to get up, gotta keep your head up
Look at the people all around you
The way you feel is something everybody goes through
Dark out, but you still gotta lie up
You need to wake up, gotta keep your face up

Seems like the more you grow
The more time you spend alone
Before you know it you end up perfectly on your own
The city's shining bright
But you don't see the light
How can you concentrate on things that don't make you feel right

I just want to feel all right

The times you don't wanna wake up
'Cause in your sleep it's never over when you give up
The sun is always gonna rise up
You need to get up, gotta keep your head up
Look at the people all around you
The way you feel is something everybody goes through
Dark out, but you still gotta lie up
You need to wake up, gotta keep your face up

I'm looking for more than a little bit
I'm gonna have to find my way through it
Gonna leave a mark
I'm gonna set a spark
I'm coming above the ground

I won't be looking down

The times you don't wanna wake up
'Cause in your sleep it's never over when you give up
The sun is always gonna rise up
You need to get up, gotta keep your head up
Look at the people all around you
The way you feel is something everybody goes through
Dark out, but you still gotta lie up
You need to wake up, gotta keep your face up

    This song is okay. I don't like her voice though, I don't even like the song when it comes to melody either. The only thing I like is the lyrics. I'm being kinda blunt but at least I'm honest...
