Verse 1

I took some chances and I pray I won't regret them

And I made some choices I'm not proud of

But I made promises that I promised I would keep

And I told myself I would never rely on someone else

Chorus

So now I am standing here alive

And it feels so good

I am trying to survive

And I hoped you would

Help me to get out of this town

And help me to get on with my life

Cause I'm just trying to survive

To survive

Verse 2

I made decisions based on what my parents told me

And I made my plans around what my parents wanted

But I told myself I would give it all up in a second

If anyone gave me the chance to get out of this town

Chorus

So now I am standing here alive

And it feels so good

I am trying to survive

And I hoped you would

Help me to get out of this town

And help me to get on with my life

Cause I'm just trying to survive

To survive

I'm trying to survive

Bridge

And the people

They all told me

I would never make it out

And my friends they all believed I would fail

But you

You helped me when no one else believed

So now I'm standing here with you

Chorus

I am standing here alive

And it feels so good

I am trying to survive

And I hoped you would

Help me to get out of this town

And help me to get on with my life

Cause I'm just trying to survive

And I'm standing here alive

And it feels so good

I am trying to survive

And I hoped you would help me to get out of this town

And help me to get on with my life

Cause I'm just trying to survive

No one thought I would survive

But I'm just trying to survive

To survive
