Left everything behind me,
searching for the strength I thought I had inside me,
left you behind so lonely,
praying for the day that you would somehow find me.

I was young
(you were wrong)
but i tried
(I was trying to give that I had lost through all I see)

Hear me now.
All I can say is I am not afraid,
of the world that I am trying to put you in,
I fight everyday,
but I am to blame,
I am not innocent,
but I am not afraid.

*music*

[Verse 2]
I lost all the things inside me,
(inside me)
Still have found myself with all the will to
free me from you,
I'm asleep,
I'm happy,
(I'm happy)
Want to know so much for you to someday see me.

tell me how,
(I want to)
sing it loud,
(I need you to be the one who catches all my dreams)

Hear me now
All I can say,
is I am not afraid of the world that I am trying to put you in,
I fight everyday,
but I am to blame,
I am not innocent,
but I am not afraid anymore,
I am not afraid,
anymore...

I'm tired of sleeping,
alone I've been grieving,
the life that I gave up to feel alive,
I want to feel alive..

*music*

I'm not afraid,
anymore,
I'm not afraid,
anymore,

I'm not afraid,(I want to feel alive)
anymore,(I want to feel alive)
I'm not afraid,(I want to feel, I need to feel)
anymore,(I want to feel alive)
(X4)

i'm not afraid,(hold on tight)
anymore, (let's make this right)
I'm not afraid(take me, come with me, feel alive tonight)

    General CommentI take it as someone who went through an addiction and is battling themselves but telling them that they want to quit. And he wants to feel alive because the addiction of whatever it is is getting to the point where he doesn't even have the sense of "living" anymore. Hense the "I am not innocent" because he realized that the addiction is bad. But I like how he's "Not afraid" to take a stand instead of being consumed into his problem.(:That's just how I viewed the song when I heard it. I also LOVE this song. It's amazing. <3.

    My InterpretationI think I have an idea of what this song is by making it Sasuke Uchiha's from "Naruto" theme music.
    (The lyrics are WRONG by the way. I'll make the correct changes in this interpretation.)
    In my case, Sasuke is not only an example to the meaning of the song, he's also used as a symbol himself...I'll leave it to you guys to figure it out.
    ~(These are my perceptions)~
    Here's my interpretation:

    Left everything behind me
    searching for the strength I thought I had inside me,
    ~(He left the best things he used to try to achieve something he assumed was better. In Sasuke's case, power.)~
    Left you behind so lonely,
    ~(He feels lonely after leaving all his loved ones behind)~
    Praying for the day that you would somehow find me.
    ~(He's begging his loved ones (Naruto and Sakura) to save find his old self beneath his new dark self)~

    I was young
    (you were wrong)
    ~(Pretty self-explanatory. The text in the parentheses is from "someone else" that's telling him something he's telling himself for him.)~
    But I tried
    ~(He tried to resist the darkness, evil, etc. you get what I mean.)~
    (I was wrong
    And the years that I have lost are all I see)
    ~(He was wrong...and the years of what could have been if he hadn't left are all he thinks about.)~

    Hear me now
    ~(He knows he's guilty and he wants to plead to his loved ones (Naruto and Sakura) to hear how very sorry he is)
    All I can say is I am not afraid,
    Of the world that I have tried to push away,
    ~(He rejected his old life of love and happiness because he feared it would interfere with his goal. In Sasuke's case, power and revenge.)~
    I fight everyday,
    but I am to blame,
    ~(He's living through hell and understands it's only because he did it to himself.)~
    I am not innocent,
    but I am not afraid.
    ~(He wants to go back to that love and happiness. He knows he may not deserve it all and his loved ones might reject him, but he's not afraid to try.)~

    [Verse 2]
    I've lost all the faith inside me,
    (inside me)
    ~(He lost all the hope he had for himself)~
    Still have found myself without the the will to
    Free me from you
    ~(But he's still a victim to his own evil want)
    I'm a slave,
    ~(He either doesn't know how to free himself from the desire, he knows but he still can't free himself, or he just doesn't think he deserves to. I think there's something else but I don't know...)~
    Unhappy
    (unhappy)
    ~(...And he's not happy about it)~
    Want to know so much for you to someday see me.
    ~(He wants to know how he can let his loved ones know that through his evil shell and actions, the real him is still in there somewhere and he wants them to help him save himself.)~


    Tell me how,
    (I want to)
    sing it loud,
    ~(He wants to know how to cry for their help)~
    (I need you to be the one who catches all my dreams)
    ~(He needs their loved ones to help him achieve his dreams of being loved and happy alongside them again.)~

    Hear me now
    All I can say
    Is I am not afraid
    Of the world that I have tried to push away
    I fight everyday
    But I am to blame
    I am not innocent
    But I am not afraid
    Anymore
    ~(He's not afraid of loving and being happy anymore...)~
    I am not afraid
    Anymore

    I'm tired of sleeping
    ~(He's tired of just merely dreaming about it)~
    Alone I've been grieving
    The life that I gave up to feel alive
    ~(He misses the old life that he gave up for the other life that he thought would give him true happiness and meaning in his life)~
    I want to feel alive
    ~(He was wrong. The old life was the one that truly made his life happy and worth living, and he wants it back)~

    I'm not afraid anymore,
    I am not afraid anymore

    I want to feel alive,
    I want to feel alive
    I want to feel
    I need to feel
    I want to feel alive

    I'm not afraid

    ~(Yeah I think you guys are getting the message by now.)~

    Hold on tight
    ~(Either he's saying it's gonna be tough, he's literally holding someone, or both)~
    Let's make this right
    Take me
    Make me
    Feel alive tonight
    ~(You guys know what this means right?)~

    And it doesn't have to literally mean the speaker was evil. Maybe he's done something wrong like, abuse, cheat, talked badly to, forsaken, took granted for, etc. Strange, lot of songs have been about some thing like this O.O

    And I can tell the singer, John Vessely, wrote this probably specifically for his wife cause they had a fight and divorced. Maybe he did something wrong to “throw them away” or something and he wants her and their life together back again.

    I like this song because it's no mistake it's written from the heart. This is currently my favorite song and I love John Vessely =D
