Day 3: Alive

I made it to day three, so it seems I’m accomplishing something. Today is the under appreciated song, Alive by Becki Ryan. This song speaks of a girl waiting for freedom but I find if you look past the perspective this song comes from everyone can connect with this song in more ways then one.

Alive by Becki Ryan

Stuck in a world
No longer turning
Always a girl
Waiting for something
Too many days
Walking around sleeping
Open my eyes I’m tired of dreaming

I wanna run with reckless emotion
find out if love is a size of an ocean
even if I crash down burn out
at least I’m gonna know what its like
to feel alive

Sun on my face
lots of a city
maybe in love
or just learning to be
on my two feet
I can only imagine
ill say the words
and believe it will happen

I wanna run with reckless emotion
find out if love is the size of and ocean
even if i crash down burn out
(myself)
at least I’m gonna know what its like
to feel alive

they think they know me
but how can they know me
I’m getting to know myself
I’m finally ready to be somebody
with a story to tell

I wanna run with reckless emotion
Find out if love is the size of an ocean
Even if I crash down and burn out
at least I’m gonna know what its like

I wanna feel till my heart breaks wide open
(heart breaks wide open)
I wanna blaze like a fire that’s flowing
(fire that’s growing)
even if I crash down an’ burn out
at least I’m gonna know what its like
(what its like)
to feel alive

The emotions portrayed through the lyrics in this song become very vivid as it progresses. The person just wants freedom, with all the good and the bad and things in between. As long as they get to experience what it’s like to feel the basic emotions of life; pain, love, hurt, and happiness. Sometimes we forget in our mundane live, the advantages we are given, and how appreciative we really should be for been given them.
