Lyrics for Sia – ‘Alive’

[Verse 1]
I was born in a thunderstorm
I grew up overnight
I played alone
I played on my own
I survived
Hey
I wanted everything I never had
Like the love that comes with life
I wore envy and I hated it
But I survived

[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m alive
I’m alive
I’m alive
I’m alive

[Verse 2]
I found solace in the strangest place
Way in the back of my mind
I saw my life in a stranger’s face
And it was mine

[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m alive
I’m alive
I’m alive
I’m alive

[Post-Chorus]
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
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

[Bridge]
I had made every single 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 in and got it
Did all the things that you said that I wouldn’t
I told you that I would never be forgotten
And all in spite of you

[Chorus]
And I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m alive (You took it all, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it all, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive (You took it all, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it all, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive (You took it all, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it all, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive

[Outro]
I’m alive
I’m alive
I’m alive
I’m alive
