I'm at war with the world and they
Try to pull me into the dark
I struggle to find my faith
As I'm slippin' from your arms

It's getting harder to stay awake
And my strength is fading fast
You breathe into me at last

I'm awake! I'm alive!
Now I know what I believe inside
Now it's my time
I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life
Here (Right here)
Right now (Right now)

I'll stand my ground and never back down

I know what I believe inside
I'm awake and I'm alive!

I'm at war with the world 'cause I
Ain't never gonna sell my soul
I've already made up my mind
No matter what I can't be bought or sold

When my faith is getting weak
And I feel like giving in
You breathe into me again

I'm awake! I'm alive!
Now I know what I believe inside
Now it's my time
I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life
Here (Right here)
Right now (Right now)

I'll stand my ground and never back down

I know what I believe inside
I'm awake and I'm alive!

Waking up, Waking up
Waking up, Waking up
Waking up, Waking up
Waking up, Waking up

In the dark, I can feel you in my sleep
In your arms I feel you breathe into me
Forever hold this heart that I will give to you
Forever I will live for you!

I'm awake! I'm alive!
Now I know what I believe inside
Now it's my time
I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life
Here (Right here)
Right now (Right now)

I'll stand my ground and never back down

I know what I believe inside
I'm awake and I'm alive!

Waking up, Waking up
Waking up, Waking up
Waking up, Waking up
Waking up, Waking up

    People pulling you down saying you wont be able to do this and you doubting yourself. Wanting to do something but there is no one who believes in you and you try to get the courage to do what you believe what's right. You try to find who you are. And when everything gets so bad you don't want to continue there is one person in your life who tells you to continue and that they believe in you. They tell you to do what you want, seize the moment to do what you want because you might not get another chance. You only get to live once so believe its your life and don't back down.

    I've been a sinner for a while now, but this song reminded me of the words of god. I shall not sin again!

    When you feel like its easier to just give up and give in to the sins of the world, someone you love will wake you up again to the words of the bible.

    It shows that no one can tell you what to do because you are alive and not buried in the earth. God is the master of you and no one else and even still he can't control your actions.
