Lucky To Be Alive

For the lyric competition. TW: the whole song is about suicide, so if you're sensitive to that, please don't read. This is a reflection on my latest and worst attempt back in April and how I'm working to fix my life and move on. I'd like to do a recording, but I don't play any instruments and I'm not the best singer.

1. Lucky To Be Alive

 

VERSE 1:

Dark times come and go

You just need to find your light

Lonely times can break you down

But you don’t have to be alone

Looking helpless, I think I’m drowning

Suffocating on my own

Lifeless, I think I’m dying

Don’t ever leave me alone

 

PRE-CHORUS:

And I think that I’m alive

Barely, just barely

And I think that I can dive

Back into life, get it right

I just need to remember

Never surrender

 

CHORUS:

It’s okay to have scars

At least they show you survived

And it’s okay to cry

Just don’t let your tears drown you like they did before

And I know that you’re broken

But you still seem to thrive

Count your blessings little girl

You’re lucky to be alive

 

VERSE 2:

Dark times tear you up

Rip your mind from your soul

Drop the bottle, drop the bottle

Pills won’t make you less alone

And I’m all on my own

Facing danger in the night

Can’t take the pain anymore

Living won’t make me alright

 

PRE-CHORUS:

And I think that I’m alive

Barely, just barely

And I think that I can dive

Back into life, get it right

I just need to remember

Never surrender

 

CHORUS:

It’s okay to have scars

At least they show you survived

And it’s okay to cry

Just don’t let your tears drown you like they did before

And I know that you’re broken

But you still seem to thrive

Count your blessings little girl

You’re lucky to be alive

 

BRIDGE:

4-07-2018

Still haunts me

4-07-2018

Not the person that I want to be

4-07-2018

Still haunts me

4-07-2018

Not the person that I want to be

 

FINAL CHORUS:

It’s okay to have scars

At least they show you survived

And it’s okay to cry

Just don’t let your tears drown you like they did before

And I know that you’re broken

But you still seem to thrive

Count your blessings little girl

You’re lucky to be alive

Oohooh oohoohooh

Lucky to be alive

I just need to remember

Never surrender
