If I could write to the kid I was before
Id tell him youll get everything you ever wanted
But you will still want more.
Someones gonna tell you
Who you should wanna be
So youll forget the vision that they didnt wanna see
And when they give up cause they will give up say
Here I am alive.

They say you dont grow up
You just grow old,
It seems to say I havent done both,
I made mistakes, I know I know
But here I am alive.
So many people close to me cut me down,
This is supposed to be a bad luck town
I jumped, I fell, I hit the ground.
But here I am alive.

If I could write to myself
When I was on top of it all,
Id say youre going over border
And when youre falling
Youre gonna feel so small,
Someones gonna tell you that you deserve the worst,
Theyll say youre never coming back
And tell you that youre cursed.
But when they give up, cause they always give up.
Say, here I am alive.

They say you dont grow up
You just grow old,
It seems to say I havent done both,
I made mistakes, I know I know
But here I am alive.
So many people close to me cut me down,
This is supposed to be a bad luck town
I jumped, I fell, I hit the ground.
But here I am alive.

(Alive alive alive alive alive)

And when they give up, cause they will give up
Say: Here I am alive!
And when they give up, cause they always give up
Say: Here I am alive!

They say you dont grow up
You just grow old,
It seems to say I havent done both,
I made mistakes, I know I know
But here I am alive.
So many people close to me cut me down,
This is supposed to be a bad luck town
I jumped, I fell, I hit the ground.
But here I am alive.

Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
Here I am alive!
If I could write to the kid I was before
