Alive

October 13, 2016

Thank you to my dear Liz for my bracelet.  It is a very special message. I am trying to “have this.”

There are 3 songs I listen to every day. Unstoppable, Peter Pan, and Alive. 

Sia is the artist behind Unstoppable and Alive.  I love her raw, powerful voice. 

I listen to Alive to remind me that I have to go on, no matter what death has taken from me.  Anthony’s death has actually been a rebirth, I am no longer the woman I was before he died.   I have to fight and survive. 

When I listen to this song I close my eyes and imagine I am screaming the words. As loud as I can. 

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’m alive
I’m alive
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
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’m alive
I’m alive
I’m alive

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

I’m alive
I’m alive
I’m alive
I also have a particular affinity for the video to Alive. The young martial artist is doing exactly what I would like to do to Death for stealing my son. Kicking its ass.
