You might not see it now,
You may not even believe it sometimes,
But i am still alive.

All your kicking and screaming,
All those battering nights,
All those blows to my face,
But i am still alive.

I lived through my broken bones,
I survived the battered ego,
I endured the broken heart,
I am still alive.

I lived through the physical pain,
I managed to see through my emotional pain,
I am still alive.
