Live like we're alive

Nevertheless

They say we can't make it through

too young; don't know what to do.

This life is much too hard for you and me.

They say we're living in our dreams

black, white, and nothing in between.

This world is never as it seems to be.

But they don't want this

and they don't feel this

but this was never theirs at all!

So here I stand.

I'm ready for anything.

Just a man, but I'm giving everything.

We're here only for a second

and then we're gone when we least expect it.

So do more than survive.

Let's live like we're alive!

They say, "Stay inside the lines we've drawn

and you will be just fine. Don't take chances

with your life. C'mon." But they don't want this,

and they don't feel this, but this was never theirs at all!

So here I stand.

I'm ready for anything.

Just a man, but I'm giving everything.

We're here only for a second

and then we're gone when we least expect it.

So do more than survive.

Let's live like we're alive!

This world, we've gotta let it go.

This life is out of our control.

So here I stand. I'm ready for anything.

Just a man, but I'm giving everything.

We're here only for a second

and then we're gone when we least expect it.

So do more than survive. Let's live like we're alive!
