so still

’ve been up and out on this mountain top

The climbs been rough but i’m hanging on somehow

I hear the roar of the thunder far away

Frozen with fear my grip starts to slip away

But i close my ears and drown it out


I’m still breathing

I’m still fighting

I’m still holding on to every ledge i see

Not looking down on those memories

This is my life

It’ll always hold strife

This is my knife

I’ll hack away at the thorns

I’m still breathing

I’m still climbing


I’v e stumbled over rocks and crevices

But i stood up

My scars are the evidence

I’m still breathing

In and out

Up and down

This mountain is my future

And i dont plan on losing to it

All the thoughts in my head rock my shoulders

Build on my back heavy as boulders

Frozen with fear my grips starts to slip away

But not today


I’m still breathing

I’m still fighting

I’m still holding on to every ledge i see

Not looking down on those memories

This is my life

It’ll always hold strife

This is my knife

I’ll hack away at the thorns

I’m still breathing

I’m still climbing


I can’t see the top

Every place in my body tells me to stop

But that’s not an option

The fog is thickening

I wanna fall but i’ve already come so far

If i’m still breathing

I’ll still be climbing

A little less doubt and a little more diligence

This is all i have

I’d better make the best of it


I’m still breathing

I’m still breathing

I’m still

I’m still

I’m still


I’m still breathing

I’m still fighting

I’m still holding on to every ledge i see

Not looking down on those memories

This is my life

It’ll always hold strife

This is my knife

I’ll hack away at the thorns

This is not the end

Just another chapter to begin

I’m writing my life story

Theres no time no time to stop and feel sorry

I’m still breathing

I’m still climbing

I’m still

So still
