Shinedown – I'm Alive lyrics

I'm alive!
Alive!

So you were 6 feet underneath me
I felt the pulse, I swear you moved
You're digging deep, deep down
And recognized how much you had to lose

And if you wanna get out of here, wanna get out of here
Save yourself
But you'll never get anywhere, never get anywhere
Not without my help

[Say it with me]

I'm alive, I'm alive
Well, you're dead inside
I'm a slap in the face
To your lullaby
Got you all tongue tied
'cause you're living a lie, my friend

Say it with me...

I'm alive, I'm alive
Well, you're dead inside
I'm your wake-up call
And you know I'm right
So make a move
Let it bleed
Tear your heart off your sleeve
But I'm the only one who's gonna save your life
I'm the one who's gonna save your life
I'm the one who's gonna...

So how far did you go for shelter?
How long did it take you to find
A place to sell your providence
And to pawn your peace of mind

And if you wanna get out of here, wanna get out of here
Save yourself
But you'll never get anywhere, never get anywhere
Not without my help

[Say it with me]

I'm alive, I'm alive
Well, you're dead inside
I'm a slap in the face
To your lullaby
Got you all tongue tied
'cause you're living a lie, my friend

Say it with me...

I'm alive, I'm alive
Well, you're dead inside
I'm your wake-up call
And you know I'm right
So make a move
Let it bleed
Tear your heart off your sleeve
But I'm the only one who's gonna save your life
I'm the one who's gonna save your life
I'm the one who's gonna...

Oh, oh, oh...

I'm alive, I'm alive
Well, you're dead inside
I'm a slap in the face
To your lullaby
Got you all tongue tied
'cause you're living a lie, my friend

Say it with me...

I'm alive, I'm alive
Well, you're dead inside
I'm your wake-up call
And you know I'm right
So make a move
Let it bleed
Tear your heart off your sleeve
But I'm the only one who's gonna save your life
I'm the one who's gonna save your life

I'm the one who's gonna save your life
I'm the one who's gonna save your life
I'm the one who's gonna save your life

    This fits well with how things have gone in my life. I'm a disabled vet and my wife and I had a great marriage, according to her, until my injuries. Yes I have ptsd, and have dealt with it for years. But my injuries made it so I had to depend on her for many things due to chronic pain as a result of facial and leg injuries. She left me suddenly after 2 years saying I was unstable using situation that lasted 6 weeks where a dr prescribed medication normal for most people happened to be too strong for me, causing hallucinations for about 4-6 hours. After that she was gone and took my sons with her. After everything ended, the truth came out. She just couldn't handle the injuries that I had.
