Switchfoot - When We Come Alive
From the album Fading West
The sun goes down like a photographYou try to stop time in the aftermathBut it's gone, goneYesterday reads like a tragedyI try not to lose what's left of meBut it's goneYeah, but we carry on We are fireBurning brightlyYou and IWe light the sky When we igniteWhen we come aliveWhen we come aliveIt feels like I could get lost todayThe winds in my mind get swept awayAnd I'm gone, goneAnd it's one last time to the wishing wellI throw down the change and I wish them wellBut they're goneYeah, but we'll carry onWe are our souls on fireWe are reaching higherWe are our souls on fireWhen we come aliveWhen we come aliveStrength, heart, soulPublishing: Shmublishing Publishing (ASCAP), Drew Pearson / Drew Yeah Music/Song of Pulse Recording (BMI), David Hodges / 3 Weddings Music (BMI)
