Story Of The Year – I'm Alive lyrics

In the night I sit alone
Lifeless to the world I know
Faith lost long ago
In this graveyard I'm calling home
Carved into the stone
A diary of broken bones
And words I should have know

But this grave's too deep to ever make it out
I'd do anything anything
Just to feel like I could reach the ground
I'd do anything anything now
To spread these wings somehow
I scream these words so loud
But they never make a sound

I'm alive, but I'm barely breathing now
So place my heart under the ground
Lay me down
I'm alive, but I'm barely breathing now
So drag my lungs into the ground
Lay me down

In the night I sit alone
As stars rain on the world below
And beg me to explode
Cause these dreams I keep are nowhere to be found
I'd do anything anything
Just to stop this weight from pressing down
I'd do anything anything now
To spread these wings somehow
I scream these words so loud
But they never make a sound

I'm alive, but I'm barely breathing now
So place my heart under the ground
Lay me down

I'm alive, but I'm barely breathing now
So drag my lungs into the ground
Lay me down (lay me down)

Deep enough so that I'll never feel again
Far beneath any chance at breaking skin
I'm giving in
On the promise of smiles and happiness
That's a dream I'm not willing to admit
I'm not ready yet, to face regret
No I'm not ready yet
No I'm not ready yet
No, no, no

I'd do anything anything now
To spread these wings somehow
I scream these words so loud
But they never make a sound

I'm alive, but I'm barely breathing now
So place my heart under the ground
Lay me down

I'm alive, but I'm barely breathing now
So drag my lungs into the ground
Lay me down
