A young man opened
His eyes for the first time
And saw that he had lived a lie
Against all convictions
And parent's decisions
He lived his life for the first time

And it couldn't be that we were made for nothing
Life's the hourglass and we just fill our time
Could this really be some sort of true life story?
Or is this the time that we just wait for us to die?

Alone and broken
With our bodies open
This is love for the first time
It's not always feeling
But the comprehending
Struggle is a part of life

And it couldn't be that we were made for nothing
Life's the hourglass and we just fill our time
Could this really be some sort of true life story?
Or is this the time that we just wait for us to die?

Breathe
With the confidence of your heart pounding
And breathe
With the confidence that life's surrounding

And breathe
And breathe

I promise if I stay
So delicate and brave
That I would only see
What's standing there in front of me

But if I truly live
I'll have my heart to give
In ways we can't explain
Cause we're living past all this pain

The truth is we're alive
We're just living deep inside
These fragile little minds
Instead of opening our eyes
