Alive – Cynthia Erivo Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’ve had Ghosts of my past come back to greet me
Big white smiles and their eyes
I go blind looking back, pray they can’t see me
Pray they’ll let me be

[Hook]
Cause I can’t outrun, outsmart, outlive myself
Outrun, outsmart my Shadow

[Chorus]
I wished I’d learned to take heed of all the signs
I wish I could turn back the hands of all man-time
It’s the saddest of truths, seen it with my own brown eyes
If you play with fire, you’ll get burned Alive, oh

[Verse 2]
I wish I could have known, the way fate would use me
Took my life in her hands, the things she’d do to me
Yet, I’d never complain, I’d always go through It (oh)
The pain’s a part of the Play (oh-oh)

[Hook]
Cause I can’t outrun, outsmart, outlive myself
Outrun, outsmart my Shadow

[Chorus]
I wished I’d learned to take heed of all the signs
I wish I could turn back the hands of all man-time
It’s the saddest of truths, seen it with my own brown eyes
If you play with fire, you’ll get burned Alive

[Bridge]
No returns, No regrets
No lessons learned, this is all that we get
Yeah, that’s just how it goes
The good and bad it takes it’s toll before we get old, oh

[Chorus]
I wished I’d learned to take heed of all the signs
I wish I could turn back the hands of all man-time
It’s the saddest of truths, seen it with my own brown eyes
If you play with fire, you’ll get burned Alive
