Alive – Sia

I was born in a thunderstorm
I grew up overnight
I played alone
I’m playing on my own
I survived

Hey
I wanted everything I never had
Like the love that comes with light
I wore envy and I hated that
But I survived

I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived

I’m still breathing [4x]
I’m alive [4x]

I found solace in the strangest place
Way in the back of my mind
I saw my life in a stranger’s face
And it was mine

I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived

I’m still breathing [4x]
I’m alive [4x]

You took it all, but I’m still breathing [8x]

I have made every single mistake
That you could ever possibly make
I took and I took and I took what you gave
But you never noticed that I was in pain
I knew what I wanted; I went out and got it
Did all the things that you said that I wouldn’t
I told you that I would never be forgotten
And all in spite of you

And I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m alive (You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive (You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive (You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive

I’m alive [4x]

This song reminds me of the character Kate Beckett from the abc original show “Castle”.  If you know the show and Beckett’s backstory you’d know how much this song relates to her and just how much of a fighter this character really is.  Normally I wouldn’t advertise for a large network like abc but since the show is so amazing despite being under the threat of being cancelled I’d recommend it to anyone and everyone.  I can provide a brief synopsis for anyone who asks. 🙂

Alexis’s Graduation Speech (Castle Season, Episode 23)

“There is a universal truth we all have to face, whether we want to or not, everything eventually ends. As much as I’ve looked forward to this day, I’ve always disliked endings. Last day of summer, the final chapter of a great book, parting ways with a close friend. But endings are inevitable, Leaves fall, you close the book. You say goodbye. Today is one of those days for us. Today we say goodbye to everything that was familiar, everything that was comfortable. We’re moving on. But just because we’re leaving, and that hurts, there’s some people who are so much a part of us, they’ll be with us no matter what. They are our solid ground. Our North Star. And the small clear voices in our hearts that will be with us … always.”

Presented by Molly Quinn as Alexis in the hit TV series Castle on ABC
