Alive

Written by – DAVID BROWNING AND JAYLENE JOHNSON

How long had you been standing there
A witness to my grief
My shaking fist, my agony
My begging for relief I would have given anything
It seemed my soul was not enough
When you watched me lose everything
Did you want to pick me up
Did you want to pick me up

CHORUS

Did it break you when I was broken
Did it hurt you to hear me cry
To love me wasn’t easy
Did it kill you inside
You laid it all down
To see me come alive
Alive

You hold a mirror to my face
Now that the battle’s done
Beautiful scars I can’t erase
That prove how far I’ve come
Leathered skin for lessons learned
Things I had to learn alone
Pearls of wisdom I have earned
All from sand to polished stone

CHORUS

Did it break you when I was broken
Did it hurt you to hear me cry
To love me wasn’t easy
Did it kill you inside
You laid it all down
To see me come alive
Alive
