Malice

I guess it all began when I was seventeen.
Standing by the riverside where I waited for a sign.
No angel spoke to me, no bright light in the sky..
But I knew right there and then that I‘d
Give it one more try

So here I am
I’m still alive, I’m alright

Ever since that night my life has been turned upside-down
I’ve learned the hard way to be strong even without
Arms held open; betrayed and broken.
I promised myself in the darkness:
I’m gonna make it
I’m gonna take it tonight
I’m taking back what’s mine

So here I am
I’m still alive, I’m alright

But something’s hiding ever since, feeding off my tears and sins.
As long as I remember I’ve been looking for the keys to the Kingdom.
And every time I’m getting close there’s always something in the way, every day..

It’s a long way from heaven...
Without warning, I got my calling
And crawl my way through the darkness
I’m gonna make it,
I’m gonna take it,
Tonight, I’m taking back my life..

I’m alright, I’m alive..

But something’s hiding ever since, feeding off my tears and sins.
As long as I remember I’ve been looking for the keys to the Kingdom..

Oh I, Oh I
I’m alright, I’m alive..
