All the lights,
Were too bright to see the spark
That I've been missing for too long.
Something I've been missing for too long.

My empty cup,
Could never fill another.
I have spilled all I've had,
To make things better.
But the love of all others,
Has made me new.

My empty cup,
Could never (because of you) fill another.
(I am made new) I have spilled all I've had,
(Because of you) to make things better. (I am made new)

We've all been broken
So let us make each other new. (x2)

I've died inside every time I tried
To lie to myself about feeling alive, alive. (x2)
(I've died)

All the lights,
Were too bright to see the spark
That I've been missing for too long.
Something I've been missing for too long.

All these distractions,
Kept me from seeing what I needed all along,
An understanding.

I am speechless tonight
As I stare into the sky.
I feel endless compassion, forgiveness, and love,
I feel everyone who is looking up sharing this,
I feel unexplainably alive.

I need to understand what we've grown to be.

Tonight, when I look into the sky
I know this is why I am alive.
Tonight, when I look into the sky
I know this is why I am alive.
So sing with me if you feel this feeling. (x2)

I'm alive.

    I think it means that you've finally let go of every pain and every problem that you've had, things that you didn't need to worry about. You've finally realized that there really are so many people around you who care. You've opened your eyes and realized that the things that have been holding you down have no reason to worry you, and you let go of those problems without regret.

    We've been hurt, but as we grow, its what makes us to be. We had to understand our past to know who we are today. We look up for hope and that is what helps us feel alive. We look up to feel the life that we can still live and grow to see what we become in our future. We choke on our pain now, in which makes us speechless, but in time when you recieve hope, you'll feel better.
