Lyrics

They'll always be a reason to be sad
You only need one to be glad you are alive
And that sun light on your face
Came light years through space just to get to you
The ones we’ve lost along the way they live through us today be alive

Be amazed by what you’re seeing the city lights are screaming
Your senses reeling and the changing of the season
Everywhere you look there is something to believe in
When you’re feeling beaten don’t forget to breathe in
Close your eyes and just give thanks you are alive (2xs)

They'll always be a reason to be hateful
You only need one to be grateful you are alive
And that wind upon your skin
Has been circling this whole world just to get to you
And no one knows tomorrow but today you are alive

Be amazed by what you’re seeing a little baby sleeping
Whose care is in your keeping they’ll soon be repeating
Everything they see so be something to believe in
When you get so mad your seething don’t forget to breathe in
Close your eyes and just give thanks you are alive (2xs)

Be amazed right now you’ve got blood racing through your veins
Be amazed you are water yet you burn fire
Now open up your eyes (4xs)

Be amazed by what you’re seeing the city lights are screaming
Your senses reeling and the changing of the season
Everywhere you look there is something to believe in
When you’re feeling beaten don’t stop dreaming
Be amazed right now you’ve got blood racing through your veins
You are something to believe in when you are feeling beaten
Don’t forget to breathe in
Close your eyes and just give thanks you are alive (3xs)
Every morning that you wake give thanks
Just give thanks you are alive
