lyrics

i came too far to give up on me
and wounds heal as the time leaves
i rearrange the puzzle to get a new piece
i won't let one wrong undo all the right things
new beginnings, new me
cast off, I send this vessel free
i'm breaking out, i'm no longer in between
open up my eyes and i rise like a phoenix

the fear of falling shouldn't take the dream of flying
the amount of defeats shouldn't lower the will of trying
when you're alone with your demons and nobody hears you screaming
then there's no option but fighting
i'm not afraid to stand for what i believe
even if that means i'll be standing alone
and i’m not afraid to get up and fight for my dreams
’cause without passion we are only flesh and bones
running and running, up and away
things won't be better tomorrow if you don't start to make 'em better today
i won't wait to waste away
and if home is a feeling, i will find another place
i start where i am, i use what i have
i do what i can, hope will always be left
i leave the compass at home
the wind will take me wherever my soul belongs

straight from the fire to the open skies
from the deepest depths to the highest highs
i come alive
from the oceanground to the moon
wherever i belong, i'll be coming soon
i come alive

for too long I walked around with the fear
to end up like a soldier who died before his cheer
until i realize i can't call it a life
when i live 75 times the same year
i won't watch the clock, i will do it does
i'll proceed and promise i will never stop
i'm not moving on to look back, i'm moving on to leave behind
and I swear i won't lose track, not one more fucking time
i keep going when i'm going through hell
’cause I wanna say that i made it before I say farewell
it's hard to persist being in search of yourself
in times where everybody wants to be somebody else, but here i am
find a way or i'll make one, build a wall when the flood comes
i'm not afraid, there's no turning back and i learned from my wrongs
rise up from the ashes, learn to forgive
spread my wings and prosper, fly away and learn to live

straight from the fire to the open skies
from the deepest depths to the highest highs
i come alive
from the oceanground to the moon
wherever i belong, i'll be coming soon
i come alive
