I lie here paralytic
Inside this soul
Screaming for you till my throat is numb
I wanna break out I need a way out
I don't believe that it's gotta be this way
The worst is the waiting
In this world I'm suffocating

[Bridge:]
Feel your presence filling up my lungs with oxygen
I take you in
I've died

[Chorus]:
Rebirthing now
I wanna live for love wanna live for you and me
Breathe for the first time now
I come alive somehow
Rebirthing now
I Wanna live my life wanna give you everything
Breathe for the first time now
I come alive somehow

Right now
Right now

I lie here lifeless
In this cocoon
Shedding my skin cause
I'm ready to
I wanna break out
I found a way out
I don't believe that it's gotta be this way
The worst is the waiting
In this world I'm suffocating

[Bridge:]
Feel your presence filling up my lungs with oxygen
I take you in
I've died

[Chorus]:
Rebirthing now
I wanna live for love wanna live for you and me
Breathe for the first time now
I come alive somehow
Rebirthing now
I Wanna live my life wanna give you everything
Breathe for the first time now
I've come alive somehow

Tell me when I'm gonna live again
Tell me when I'm gonna breathe you in
Tell me when I'm gonna feel inside
Tell me when I'm gonna feel alive

Tell me when I'm gonna live again
Tell me when this fear will end
Tell me when I'm gonna feel inside
Tell me when I'll feel alive

[Chorus]:
Rebirthing now
I wanna live for love wanna live for you and me
Breathe for the first time now
I come alive somehow
Rebirthing now
I Wanna live my life wanna give you everything
Breathe for the first time now
I've come alive somehow

I've come alive somehow

    It means that he's being reborn, whether by baptism or repenting. It could also be a reference to a kind of therapy for kids that are unruly and rebelious. They wrap them in a blanket and shake it around, telling them to find their way out alone, by pushing the blanket away. They have hold of teh top so that it's a bit harder. It's called rebirthing because it's like they're being born again. A few have died, and it really seems more like a sick form of toture that parents inflict on their children that don't obey them.

    This song could be taken in a less literal way. The way he sings of love along with the other lyrics could mean that he felt like he had never lived until he met someone and that person made him feel as if he was reborn, even breathing properly for the first time.

    This isn't about a girl. It's about God. Obviously. You can't be "rebirthed" through a girl.
    "breathe for the first time now"
    like when Christians say "i'm a born again Christian."
    That's what it means.
    Like when someone get baptized. "burried with Christ, and rise to walk in the newness of life"
