Alive - Khalid

Alive Khalid - Lyrics

Written By : John Hill, Emily Warren & Khalid

[Verse 1]
Unread texts and missed calls
Told everyone I turned my phone off
Didn't ask for help and now I’m lost
Life comes in phases
Consequences and mistakes
I'm sorry that it's taken me so long

[Pre-Chorus]
Mister, mister, please let off your power
Give me half an hour, or better yet, a few
Only sweet until it all goes sour
But life is what you make it, and then there’s more to lose

[Chorus]
Gatekeeper, can you show me more to life?
Lately, I've been living out of spite
Grim reaper, just give me one more night
I need another chance to say goodbye
I shouldn't have to die to feel alive

[Verse 2]
Here's the thing with disappearing
You can yell and no one hears you
Times like this, I need an ear
When I finally have so much to say
Wish I could see your face, oh
And do what I have to stop the tears

[Pre-Chorus]
Sister, sister, please know that I'm sorry
I wish you could've stopped me from falling off the hill
Only sweet until it all goes sour
Life is what you make it until it gets too real

[Chorus]
Gatekeeper, can you show me more to life?
Lately, I've been living out of spite
Grim reaper, just give me one more night
I need another chance to say goodbye
I shouldn't have to die to feel alive
