Still Alive – Ilana Charnelle

From the album A Class Act (2016)


 
You said that you were sorry, asked to hold me one last time

Numb as you touched me, you feel to your knees and cried

And you said your apology but all I heard was suicide

The worst part of leaving was being scared you’d die

 
Wading through the ashes, couldn’t see to wipe my eyes

As hard as the past is, it’s harder on the other side

Remembering that knotted belt and how you said the fault was mine

Coz you told me that if I ever left you’d die

You told me that if I ever left you’d die

Well look at you, still alive

 
It’s strange how people like to talk and like to take their sides

But anyone who knows the truth can read between your lies

And you can scream loud as you want and maybe change some minds

But you can’t touch me anymore, that well’s run dry

 
Some mornings I would bow my head till day faded to night

Mornings I was so unsure I couldn’t bring myself to try

But I fought alone through every storm, didn’t cling to someone’s side

I can make it on my own, thank god I tried

I can make it on my own, thank god I tried

Look at me, still alive

 
A story’s just a story, and now it’s yours against mine

But I won’t tell mine on the street, I wouldn’t waste my time

There hasn’t been a single day that luck’s not on my mind

Lucky to be free of you, lucky to be alive

 
Because you said that you were sorry, asked to hold me one last time

I was numb as you touched me, you fell to your knees and cried

And you said your apology but all I heard was suicide

Coz you told me that if I ever left you’d die

You told me that if I ever left you’d die

Well look at you, still alive
