lyrics

MADE IT OUT ALIVE
This is the year that put wrinkles on my head
Scared of the mirror
This is the day I was sure I’d lost it all
And it’s hard to start out with something
And end up alone
Without a single redeeming thought to hold
It’s a wonder I made it out alive

Fell asleep with the TV and the lights still on
Still on top of the covers
Woke up and I wondered how long I could just stay still
And those days I didn’t wake up
I just haunted the room
I didn’t care enough about myself to change
It’s a wonder I made it out alive

And I’m hoping for some luck back on my side
Hasn’t picked up in days
Sometimes I feel like it’s hopeless
Talking to myself
Waiting for a sign that never comes

And it’s strange, if you asked me in the darkness
Why I’m feeling so low
I would joke around and laugh it off but now I know
It’s a wonder I made it out alive

And I’m still praying for some luck back on my side
Hasn’t picked up in days
Sometimes I feel like it’s hopeless
Staring at the sun
Waiting for a sign

And everybody’s waiting for me to lose my mind
And I can’t shake off the feeling
It’s only a matter of time
‘Til I go and fly off the handle
Like so many other times
And once again will I be surprised to find
It’s a wonder I made it out alive?
