I Lived

I lived.

Hope when you take that jump You don’t feel the fall Hope when the water rises You built a wall Hope when the crowd screams out It’s screaming your name Hope if everybody runs You choose to stay Hope that you fall in love And it hurts so bad The only way you can know You give it all you have And I hope that you don’t suffer But take the pain… Hope when the moment comes You’ll say I…I did it all I…I did it all I owned every second that this world could give I saw so many places The things that I did Yeah, with every broken bone I swear I lived Hope that you spend your days But they all add up And when that sun goes down Hope you raise your cup Oh, oh I wish that I could witness All your joy and all your pain But until my moment comes I’ll say I…I did it all I…I did it all I owned every second that this world could give I saw so many places The things that I did Yeah, with every broken bone I swear I lived
