I Lived - OneRepublic


www.last.fmby Simon Cleary 

The Experience: I hope that you have all the joys and pains of a fully-lived life... that you can say I did it all, I owned every second that this world could give. At the end of it all, make sure you can shout, I swear I lived.


Music Video: One Republic explores young fan Brian Waracki's battle to live life in spite of his cystic fibrosis.


The Meaning of OneRepublic's I Lived is a hope and a challenge from OneRepublic to each of us. They want us to take advantage of every second that this world could give. They want you to fall in love so real that it hurts so bad. And especially, that you turn you don't just suffer, but take the pain and build your dreams with it - despite, and with every broken bone, I swear I lived. Don't just follow the crowd. Make your life worth it. Swear you lived.  

Ask Yourself: Will I make my life meaningful? At the end of it all, will I say I Lived? 


LYRICS:
Hope when you take that jump
You don't feel the fall
Hope when the water rises
You built a wall
Hope when the crowd screams
They're screaming your name
Hope if everybody runs
You choose to stay

Hope that you fall in love
And it hurts so bad
The only way you can know
You gave it all you had
And I hope that you don't suffer
But take the pain
Hope when the moment comes,
You'll say

I, I, I
I did it all
I, I, I
I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places, the things that I did
Yeah with every broken bone
I swear I lived


Hope that you spend your days
And they all add up
And when that sun goes down
Hope you raise your cup
Oh, oh oh
I wish that I could witness
All your joy
And all your pain
But until my moment comes
I'll say

I, I, I
I did it all
I, I, I
I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places, the things that I did
Yeah with every broken bone
I swear I lived

Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh (x4)

With every broken bone
I swear I lived
With every broken bone
I swear I

I, I, I
I did it all
I, I, I
I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places, the things that I did
Yeah with every broken bone
I swear I lived

Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh (x2)
I swear I lived
Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh (x2)
