SKILLET


Awake And Alive Lyrics

I'm at war with the world
And they try to pull me into the dark
I struggle to find my faith
As I'm slipping from your arms

It's getting harder to stay awake
And my strength is fading fast
You breathe into me at last

I'm awake, I'm alive
Now I know what I believe inside
Now it's my time
I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life

(Here, right now)
Right here, right now
Stand my ground and never back down
I know what I believe inside
I'm awake, and I'm alive

I'm at war with the world
'Cause I ain't never gonna sell my soul
I've already made up my mind
No matter what, I can't be bought or sold

When my faith is getting weak
And I feel like giving in
You breathe into me again

I'm awake, I'm alive
Now I know what I believe inside
Now it's my time
I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life

(Here, right now)
Right here, right now
Stand my ground and never back down
I know what I believe inside
I'm awake, and I'm alive

Waking up, waking up
Waking up, waking up
Waking up, waking up
Waking up, waking up in the dark

I can feel you in my sleep
In your arms, I feel you breathe into me
Forever hold this heart that I will give to you
Forever I will live for you

I'm awake, I'm alive
Now I know what I believe inside
Now it's my time
I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life

(Here, right now)
Right here, right now
Stand my ground and never back down
I know what I believe inside
I'm awake, and I'm alive

Waking up, waking up
Waking up, waking up
Waking up, waking up
Waking up, waking up

This song is amazing. I was at a Skillet-concert a couple of weeks ago and it was amazing. Some of you say that this is about religion, but it's really not. It's about not being afraid to be yourself.

I believe this is about him finding his faith in God and having it really open his eyes to how amazing it is. he states that it's his life he'll do what he wants, and that sounds to me like he doesn't care what anyone else thinks of him. He's proud of his faith and wants to express it.

I love this song. It taught me to never give up on what I believe in or even give up in general. I know it has something to do with faith in God. It's just obvious . They're just inspiring and they inspire me everyday to do better

I think its saying that well,he's battling with this wicked world,cuz he's not gonna sell his soul. And the chorus means,its his life,no one else. He was lost once,but he's found his place.
