If I could write to the kid I was before
I'd tell him you'll get everything you ever wanted
But you will still want more.
Someone's gonna tell you
Who you should wanna be
So you'll forget the vision that they didn't wanna see
And when they give up cause they will give up say
Here I am alive.

Hook:
They say you don't grow up
You just grow old,
It's safe to say I haven't done both,
I made mistakes, I know I know
But here I am alive.
So many people close to me cut me down,
This is supposed to be a bad luck town
I jumped, I fell, I hit the ground.
But here I am alive.

If I could write to myself
When I was on top of it all,
I'd say you're going over board
And when you're falling
You're gonna feel so small,
Someone's gonna tell you that you deserve the worst,
They'll say you're never coming back
And tell you that you're cursed.
But when they give up, cause they always give up.
Say, here I am alive.

Hook:
They say you don't grow up
You just grow old,
It's safe to say I haven't done both,
I made mistakes, I know I know
But here I am alive.
So many people close to me cut me down,
This is supposed to be a bad luck town
I jumped, I fell, I hit the ground.
But here I am alive.

(Alive alive alive alive alive)

And when they give up, cause they will give up
Say: Here I am alive!
And when they give up, cause they always give up
Say: Here I am alive!

Hook:
They say you don't grow up
You just grow old,
It's safe to say I haven't done both,
I made mistakes, I know I know
But here I am alive.
So many people close to me cut me down,
This is supposed to be a bad luck town
I jumped, I fell, I hit the ground.
But here I am alive.

Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
If I could write to the kid I was before

    It means that people try to turn you away from being who you are and that if people don't like something you are or a goal you pursue then they will try and turn you away

    But if you chase your goal and be who you are and don't let them change you for who you are then they'll give up trying and you'll be happy
