I see it every day
Just a silly old cliche, or is it fate?
The smiles that fade away
They sink into the grey without a trace
Broken and tired from the race
The fear they're trying to erase from the day to day
While they're dreaming of yesterday
Fleeting moments of a blinding sun on my face
I took a look inside
Hoping that the dream wasn't too great
I was broken and tired from the pace
Forgotten was the heart inside
Where joy and love collide
To remind me it's good to be alive
Good to be, just to be, alive
Good to be, just to be, alive
