Meridian – Borrowed Time lyrics

I've grown sick of fighting
To keep my head held above the water
There's a weight around my feet that's dragging me down
Constantly pulling me and filling up my lungs
This disease has gotten the worst of me
And I may never come back

I am a shell
Of my former self
I have changed
Now I am left empty

It kills me to wake up every day
Knowing that my life has changed
One day (one day) things will be different
Things will get better here for me

I can't remember the last time that I, that I woke up feeling alive
Everyday repeats itself
Day in, day out, it's always the same

It’s always the same

It kills me to wake up every day
Knowing that my life has changed
One day (one day) things will be different
Things will get better here for me

I've let myself get too far
All I can see are these hospital walls
I'm stuck in this bed remembering what brought me here
The scars are so deep
The memory’s engraved
I'll keep this with me as a reminder to myself
Sometimes we need a reason
And a purpose

This is my reason
This is my purpose
This is my second chance to live again

I will no longer take this life that I've lived for granted
This is my life and I will take control of everything that I used to know
