I can see all the footsteps
Left behind every second
I gave
Every songe was a snap shot of
My life I needed something to say

I started out in the last slow
Motion scene watchin' everyone
Change made a map of a one
Way road from here
Had no reason to stay

I am awake and alive
There is something callin me
More than a moment in time
It's a dream I'm followin
On my own (on my own) on my own
More than a moment in time
It's a life of leavin home

Think of me when the stars come out
Tonight take a look at the sky
Never said that I could
Burn out that bright but I needed to try

I am awake and alive
There is something callin me
More than a moment in time
It's a dream I'm followin
On my own (on my own) on my own
More than a moment in time
It's a life of leavin home

The day that I found
My voice I knew that
I had no choice
The only way I'd ever
Learn to love is if I
Found it on my own
On my own

I am awake and alive
There is something callin me
More than a moment in time
It's a dream I'm followin
On my own (on my own) on my own
On my own (on my own) on my own
More than a moment in time
It's a life of leavin home
