alive lyrics – artist vs poet

the night has come again,
and still, i am alone-
this time more than ever.
a feeling i had never felt before
and i don’t want to remember.
it’s taking a hold of me now
you drove in town to see me,
but you turned into a messenger
oh, with news i never thought would hit my ears.
it’s now numbing me inside
numbing me from this life and i,
want so badly to disappear.

maybe someday i can stand again.
maybe soon, i can learn to wash my hands of this and start anew.
but i need you now to mend my heart
because you’re the only one that can keep me alive tonight. (tonight [x5])

you’re everything to me:
my whole world, entire being,
the one thing i hold true in my life.
what made you do this to me?
did you want me to set you free?
it tears me up inside, every night.

maybe someday i can stand again.
maybe soon, i can learn to wash my hands of this and start anew.
but i need you now to mend my heart
because you’re the only one who can keep me alive tonight.

and everything will be just fine.
(i just wanted to be perfect, i just wanted to be perfect)
and everything will be just fine.
(i just wanted to be perfect, i just wanted to be perfect)

maybe someday i can stand again. (and everything will be just fine)
maybe soon, i can learn to wash my hands of this and start anew.
but i need you now to mend my heart (and everything will be just fine)
because you’re the only one that can keep me alive tonight.
