Josh Gracin — I Want To Live lyrics

Sometimes i feel like i need
To shake myself
To wake myself
I feel like im just sleepwalkin'
Through my life
Its like im swimming in
An ocean of emotion
But still somehow slowly
Goin numb inside
I don't like who im becomin'
I know i've gotta do somethin'
Before my life passes right by
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/josh-gracin-i-want-to-live-lyrics.html ]
[Chorus:]
I want to cry like the rain
Cry like the rain
Shine like sun on a beautiful mornin'
Sing to the heavens like the church bells ringin'
Fight with the devil and go down swingin'
Fly like a bird,roll like a stone
Love like i aint afraid to be alone
Take everything that this world has to give
I want to live

Sometimes i wonder
Why i work so hard to guard my heart
Till i hardly feel anything at all
I've spent my whole life building up this ivory tower
And now that im in it, i keep wishing it would fall
So i could feel the ground beneath me
Really taste the air im breathin'
And know that im alive

[Repeat Chorus]

Somethin deep inside
Keeps sayin
Life is like a vapor
Its gone in just a twinklin' of an eye

[Repeat Chorus]

I want to take every
Breath i can get
I want to live
Yeah, yeah
