Alive

It happened so fast, it all happened at once

I lost my job, my house, my life and everything I loved

The nights are cold and the days are long

I can barely hear my voice as it screeches through my lungs

The benches are hard and my life is the same

The worst part is the chill after a long hard rain

It's amazing to me what people assume

I've done drugs or have a negative attitude

I'm still happy because I am alive

Oh how I fell so alive
