Jukebox Friday

Alive – Sia

 

Jukebox Friday! For me, it just means that my Christmas vacay is coming to an end. So I chose a song that’s pretty appropriate for today’s feels and it also represents something I hope I’ll be next week when the work begins. But for those who have been already slaving away at work this week, you deserve this Friday. Plus it’s also one of my favorite songs from my favorite album in 2016: Sia – Alive. I’m in love with her voice, especially when she hit those high notes loud and clear and it sounds that her voice is breaking. I love when she screams ‘I’m Alive’, it always sends chills down my back. And we should all be grateful that we are indeed alive. Happy Friday!

I was born in a thunderstorm
I grew up overnight
I played alone
I played on my own
I survived

Hey
I wanted everything I never had
Like the love that comes with light
I wore envy and I hated that
But I survived

I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry in your pillow
But I survived

I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m alive…

I found solace in the strangest place
Way in the back of my mind
I saw my life in a stranger’s face
And it was mine

I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go…

I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing…

You took it all, but I’m still breathing…

I had made every single mistake
That you could ever possibly make
I took and I took and I took what you gave
But you never noticed that I was in pain
I knew what I wanted, I went in and got it
Did all the things that you said that I wouldn’t
I told you that I would never be forgotten
And all in spite of you

And I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m alive (You took it all, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it all, but I’m still breathing)…
I’m alive…
