I was born in a thunderstorm,

I grew up overnight.

I played alone,

I played on my own.

I survived...

  I wanted everything I never had,    like the love that came with light.    I wore envy and I hated that,    but I survived...

  I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go,    where the wind don't change    and nothing in the ground can ever grow...

  No hope, just lies,    and you're taught to cry in your pillow.     But I survived.

No hope, just lies,

and you're taught to cry in your pillow.

 I'm still breathing,  I'm still breathing...   I'm still breathing,  I'm still breathing...

I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing...

  I'M ALIVE.

I'M ALIVE.

 You took it all,  but I'm still breathing...   You took it all,  but I'm still breathing...

You took it all, but I'm still breathing...

You took it all, but I'm still breathing...

  I had made every mistake,    that you could ever possibly make.    I took and I took and I took what you gave,    but you never noticed that I was in pain. ..

I had made every mistake,

that you could ever possibly make.

I took and I took and I took what you gave,

but you never noticed that I was in pain...

  I knew what I wanted, I went out and got it,    I told you that I would never be forgotten.    And all in spite of you,    I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing...
