lyrics

She awakes just before dawn with barely a thing on,
And rises to the sunlight - a silhouette, a silver swan.
With all of her grace and that smile on her face,
I'm convinced she owns the daylight and makes the world a brighter place.

"The time reads:" one two: three four.
I find myself asleep on the floor again.

In time I have come to realize that this world keeps me alive -
Not a lover close beside me and the sweetness between her thighs.
Because love comes and goes but not everybody knows
A fire burns in all our hearts when given a chance to glow.

"The time reads:" one two: three four. I find myself still stuck on the floor.

Alive - I told myself to feel alive today.
To drink and dance the fuckin' night away, Like everything is cool.

I shed my skin and smoked away my sins - a new life to begin.
It took courage and time and a lot of late night choices on a whim.

There is more to the sky than that night it changed my life.
And that triplet tie of sparkles has just had its place in time.

"The time reads:" one two: three four. I'll pick myself up off the floor.

Alive - I told myself to feel alive today.
To drink and dance the fuckin' night away,
Like everything is cool and I am okay.

Awake before dawn, alone and content.
I won't let it get the best of me.
Awake before dawn, alone and content,
It's never going to get the best of me.
