Alive

We'd follow the one we love

Into a destructive battle.

We'd question faith if we could

And without an answer.

We'd be just another person if that were popular

Or an anomaly if we liked to stand out.

We'd jump off buildings and bridges

Just to feel the rush.

Only to land safely.

We'd break the rules

And know every punishment we got was a reward.

We'd run in the middle of a sprinkler

Just to see if the water was cold.

We'd do a million wrong things

Just to see if we were alive.

We'd go deep and far

Where everything is warm.

We'd do all this

And yet we felt nothing and everything.

We felt alive.
