lyrics

Alive (But Barely Breathing)

once into it i don't ever want to quit
but you know very well that this can't go on
okay i admit i shouldn't have ever started it
but once pressed to my lips all hope was gone

alive but barely breathing
your smile is so deceiving
give me a lie to keep believing
or show me the only thing that never dies

the spark ignites the flame
the ending's always just the same
what makes me so anxious
when you're not around
if things aren't working out
i just can't seem to do without
this one dirty habit
you're hard to put down

alive but barely breathing
your smile is so deceiving
give me a lie to keep believing
or show me the only thing
that never dies

i'm sorry that's how i am
in like a lion, out like a lamb

alive but barely breathing
you're smile is so deceiving
give me a lie to keep believing
or show me the only thing
show me the only thing
show me the only thing
that never dies
