Shelby Lynne – I'm Alive lyrics

Engines rev and trumpets roar
I don't hear your voice no more
And living isn't worth the fear of dying
Wrapped up package torn up clothes
Empty days and deep dark holes
The only thing that keeps a man from crying

Oh if I don't get you back I'll fall upon a railroad track
And let the steel wheels cut right through my bones
Oh if I don't get you back I'll cover up my bloody tracks
With sorrow hopes and hide my dying pride
Oh cause I'm alive

Whispers in a losers dream
Holding on to not a thing
Cause these arms now are paralyzed without you to hold
Bold with crazy have no fear
Children cry and then I hear
The message my lies tell me in my dreams

Oh if I don't get you back I'll fall upon a railroad track
And let the steel wheels cut right through my bones
Oh if I don't get you back I'll cover up my bloody tracks
With sorrow hopes and hide my dying pride
Oh cause I'm alive

Maybe if I caught the rain
In pails that filter out the pain
I'd realize why you had to go
Days of lightning show the way
And night time creeps and holds at bay
The missing you, the mean, the cold, the ugly

Oh if I don't get you back I'll fall upon a railroad track
And let the steel wheels cut right through my bones
Oh if I don't get you back I'll cover up my bloody tracks
With sorrow hopes and hide my dying pride
Oh cause I'm alive
