Emerge
From a dark time
Rise up
I open my eyes

Break free
From these binding chains
Shout, burst
I'm alive, alive again

Repair
Give me sanity
Remove
The burden in me

Destroy
All of my worries
Breathe, again
The light I have longed to see

Alive again
Alive again
Don't bring me down again


I spread my wings
I burn down these dark times
For once, in my lifetime
I feel love
I feel joy
I can feel everything
I am alive

Comparing myself with the phoenix here... and this can relate to myself becoming a happier person after the pandemic but also when I had really emerged from a dark time in my life back in early 2011.
