Alive Again Lyrics
I woke up in darkness
Surrounded by silence
Oh where, oh where have I gone?

I woke to reality
Losing its grip on me
Oh where, where have I gone?

‘Cause I can see the light
Before I see the sunrise

You called and You shouted
Broke through my deafness
Now I’m breathing in and breathing out
I’m alive again
You shattered my darkness
Washed away my blindness
Now I’m breathing in and breathing out
I’m alive again

Late have I loved You
You waited for me, I searched for You
What took me so long?

I was looking outside
As if Love would ever want to hide
I’m finding I was wrong

‘Cause I feel the wind
Before it hits my skin

‘Cause I want You, Yes I want You
I need You, and I’ll do
Whatever I have to just to get through
‘Cause I love You, Yeah I love You

One story about "Alive Again"

  • This is one of the most Powerful songs I’ve heard in my 50 yrs of life. 7 years ago I got out of an abusive marriage. And yes I was the husband. Contemplating and then planning suicide I struggled for years to find a way out. I always had a relationship with Jesus, (so I thought) but I never really allowed Him to take control of my life. Praying diligently it hit me when listening to this song. Since our children where grown and didn’t need my constant protection and care anymore, I found myself in darkness not knowing what to do or how to now deal with the struggles. This song got me through those times. Not only this song but most ALL of Matt’s songs hit me like NO others. It’s like I wrote them. I NEVER in my life felt such a connection to so many songs. He sang my life my fears and doubts. I CAN NOT THANK God enough for how He used Matt to talk to me in my most desperate times in my life. GOD BLESS YOU MATT MAHER! PLEASE, PLEASE keep writing songs. He has chosen you to speak to me and I’m sure Millions others. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE EVERY song you sing.
