The Used – I Come Alive

“I try counting my blessings, picturing the last time I fed”

Formula One, race edit India 2013. That’s how we found this song, and how we found The Used. A great band, and a great song. Or not? Our opinions differ a bit here. The song is the first one on the CD Vulnerable, which got released in 2012. Vulnerable was a CD where The Used tried a bit different music style compared to their previous CD’s. The reactions on the CD differed a lot, so let’s give it a listen by yourself!

Lyrics

Breathing in now

I try counting my blessings

Picturing the last time I fed

Beg forgiveness

With some words that mean nothing

Illusions like smoke in my breath

 

I come alive

When I’m falling down

I let myself go

‘Til I hit the ground

When I’m there, at the edge

In this moment I feel it I know

Come alive when I’m falling down

 

Air is thin now

While my lungs are collapsing

Vertigo blankets my head

Far from reckless

When I’m comfortable, thought

That I know I could never forget

 

I come alive

When I’m falling down

I let myself go

‘Til I hit the ground

When I’m there, at the edge

In this moment I feel it I know

Come alive when I’m falling down

 

Keep your distance

Far away from me

Watch this eat me alive

Keep your distance

Far away from me

Watch this eat me alive

 

I come alive

When I’m falling down

I let myself go

‘Til I hit the ground

When I’m there, at the edge

In this moment I feel it I know

Come alive when I’m falling down

 

I come alive!

I come alive!

I come alive!

I come alive!

I agree with Timothy. Something is missing in this song

Opinion Justin

I think this is a very good song. The lyrics are pretty good in my opinion and the music as well. I understand the opinion of the other two. I think they’re missing the electric guitar, or at least they’d like to have it more present, but I actually don’t miss that a lot.
