Half Alive

It’s four AM, I’m waking up to your perfume

Don’t get up, I’ll get through on my own

I don’t know if I’m home

Or if I lost the way into your room

I’m spiraling into my doom

I’m feeling half alive but I know one day

You and I will be free,


To live and die by our own rules,


Despite the fact that men are fools.


I’m almost alive, and I need you to try

And save me.

It’s okay that we’re dying,

But I need to survive tonight, tonight.


Well excuse me while I get killed softly,

Heart slows down and I can hardly tell you I’m okay

At least ’til yesterday,

You know you got me off my highest guard,

Believe me when I say it’s hard.

We’ll get through this tonight

And I know one day you and I will be free..


And you touch my hand ever so slightly

(Boy we’re not ready for this yet)

And the deadly look he cast upon me

I won’t regret, I won’t regret

I won’t regret. I won’t regret…


And I was trying to disappear,

But you got me wrapped around you

I can hardly breathe without you

I was trying to disappear

But I got lost in your eyes now,

You brought me down to size now.


I’m almost alive

And I need you to try and save me.

It’s okay that we’re dying

But I need to survive tonight, tonight
