i want to live lyrics – josh gracin

sometimes i feel like i need
to shake myself
to wake myself
i feel like i’m just sleepwalkin’
through my life
it’s like i’m swimming in
an ocean of emotion
but still somehow slowly
going numb inside
i don’t like who i’m becomin’
i know i’ve gotta do somethin’
before my life p*sses right by

i want to cry like the rain
cry like the rain
shine like sun on a beautiful mornin’
sing to the heavens like the church bells ringin’
fight with the devil and go down swingin’
fly like a bird, roll like a stone
love like i ain’t afraid to be alone
take everything that this world has to give
i want to live

sometimes i wonder
why i work so hard to guard my heart
till i hardly feel anything at all
i’ve spent my whole life building up this ivory tower
and now that i’m in it, i keep wishing it would fall
so i could feel the ground beneath me
really taste the air i’m breathin’
and know that i’m alive

[repeat chorus]

something deep inside
keeps saying
life is like a vapor
its gone in just a twinklin’ of an eye

[repeat chorus]

i want to take every
breath i can get
i want to live
yeah, yeah
