Alive
all she's asking is for a little more time

to walk away from his anger

and leave the bruises far behind

but she won't talk about it

she's made up her mind

when the front door shuts behind her

she whispers...

"give me a sign..."

and feels the power of the engine

as she climbs to 65

and every piston sounds like freedom

and every white line says goodbye

but she finds strength in her anger

and the truth in his lies

when the last scar finally fades

she'll have a new life



say goodbye

to mr. right

lock the door, turn out the light

pack your bags

leave this trap

run away, don't look back

see another day in each new sun

your life has just begun...



yeahhhh...



you'll see another day in each new sun

'cause your life has just begun...



she can still feel the touch of his hands

not just the violence, but the warmth

of her man...



say goodbye

to mr. right

lock the door, turn out the light

pack your bags

leave this trap

run away, don't look back

see another day in each new sun

cause your life has just begun...



yeah...



it was the night she never felt so alive

tonight she never felt so alive

it was the night she never felt so alive



and it's the first time i've ever seen her smile
