I opened up my eyes
Swear I saw the light
Don't you know the truth
It's so very hard to find

Too much doesn't feel good
Too much doesn't feel right
I'm singing (singing), I'm singing (singing)
I'm singing, singing simple song

Some things die
To stay alive
The tears we cried
We'll drink them from time
Yeah, I'm happy to feel this way
Don't know another way
Happy and feeling right

Oh, it's the only thing that gets me through the night
I'm not scared, 'cause I know I will survive
That's right, that's right

Mercy has it's place
I know I made mistakes
Please open those arms
Fill me with your grace

Too much doesn't feel good
Too much doesn't feel right
I'm singing (singing), I'm singing (singing)
I'm singing, singing simple song

Some things die
Just to stay alive
The tears we cried
We'll drink 'em from time
Yeah, I'm happy to feel this way
Don't know another way
Happy to feel that right

Oh, it's the only thing that gets me through the night
I'm not scared, 'cause I know I can survive
That's right, that's right

Yeah, I'm happy to feel this way
You know I don't know another way
(Yes I know I can survive)
Yeah, I'm happy to feel this way
('cause I know I can survive)
'Cause I don't know another way
('cause I know I can survive)
Ohh, my my my my my my my my my my my my my
Ohhhhh my my my my my
Yeah I know I can surviiiiiiive
Yes I know I will surviiiiiive
Oh eh oh eh oh
