Here is the lyrics:

All this time all this time
Keeps fading
Feeling trapped inside
So afraid of the darkness talking
In my mind

It’s been a long time coming
But it wasn’t for nothing
Soul searching for something
For something

I’m down on my knees in the dust
I scream from the top of my lungs
I’ll find my way back to a higher ground
Yeah I just want to feel alive
Deep in my bones
I know I’m not there but I’m close,
I’ll find my way back to a higher ground

Yeah I just want to feel alive, with you
Yeah I just want to feel alive, with you
Yeah I just want to feel alive

Try to speak but my voice keeps breaking
Need to say whats wrong
So many smiles you have seen me faking
On and on

It’s been a long time coming
But it wasn’t for nothing
Soul searching for something
For something

I’m down on my knees in the dust
I scream from the top of my lungs
I’ll find my way back to a higher ground
Yeah I just want to feel alive
And deep in my bones
I know I’m not there but I’m close,
I’ll find my way back to a higher ground

Yeah I just want to feel alive, with you

Yeah I just want to feel alive, with you

Yeah I just want to feel alive
With you, you, yeah
I just want to feel alive
With you, you, yeah
I just want to feel alive, with you
