I wanna live

Sometimes I feel like I need to shake myself, to wake myself:
I feel like I’m just sleep walkin’ through out life.
It’s like I’m swimmin’ in an ocean of emotion,
But still, somehow, slowly goin’ numb inside.
I don’t like who I’m becomin’, I know I’ve gotta do somethin’,
Before my life passes right by.

I want to cry like the rain, cry like the rain,
An’ shine like the sun on a beautiful mornin’.
Sing to the heavens like a church bell ringin’,
Fight with the devil an’ go down swingin’.
Fly like a bird, roll like a stone,
Love like I ain’t afraid to be alone.
Take everything that this world has to give:
I wanna live.

Sometimes I wonder why I work so hard to guard my heart.
Well, I hardly feel anything at all.
I’ve spent my whole life buildin’ up this ivory tower.
Now that I’m in it, I keep wishin’ it would fall.
So I can feel the ground beneath me, really taste this air I’m breathin’,
And know that I’m alive.

I want to cry like the rain, cry like the rain,
An’ shine like the sun on a beautiful mornin’.
Sing to the heavens like a church bell ringin’,
Fight with the devil an’ go down swingin’.
Fly like a bird, roll like a stone,
Love like I ain’t afraid to be alone.
Take everything that this world has to give:
I wanna live,
I wanna live.

Somethin’ deep inside keeps sayin life is like a vapor:
It’s gone in just the twinklin’ of an eye.

I want to cry like the rain, cry like the rain,
An’ shine like the sun on a beautiful mornin’.
Sing to the heavens like a church bell ringin’,
Fight with the devil an’ go down swingin’.
Fly like a bird, roll like a stone,
Love like I ain’t afraid to be alone.
Take everything that this world has to give.
I wanna take every breath I can get:
I wanna live.

Yeah, yeah

  1. Oddly enough, I LIKE that song… and I ordinarily hate country music (as you well know). There’s just something about it (and NOT the fact that the singer is a home town boy).

  2. OMG I didn’t know he had an album out yet. Wow, I loved him on Idol. I think he is the next Garth Brooks!!!
