Awesome song and message – I Lived – One Republic

It’s not often I come across a music video that gets to me. Watching One Republic’s I lived video did just that.

The video is a story about Bryan who suffers from cystic fibrosis. It shows him not only doing his “normal” every day routine of strapping to a machine, but also doing things that many of us either take for granted or would find just too much of an effort. At the end of the video we find out that Bryan and his team mates cycle to raise money for cystic fibrosis research. Well done Bryan!

It makes me feel grateful to be able to do what I am able to do. If you’re looking for a little bit of inspiration, this music video is a must-see!

Lyrics:
“I Lived”
[Verse 1]
Hope when you take that jump

You don’t fear the fall
Hope when the water rises
You build a wall

Hope when the crowd screams out

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
Is give it all you have

And I hope that you don’t suffer
But take the pain
Hope when the moment comes
You’ll say…

[Chorus]
I, I did it all
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

[Verse 2]
Hope that you spend your days
But they all add up
And when that sun goes down
Hope you raise your cup

I wish that I could witness
All your joy and all your pain
But until my moment comes
I’ll say…

[Chorus]
I, I did it all
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

[Bridge]
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Oh
Oh
Yeah, with every broken bone
I swear I lived
Yeah, with every broken bone
I swear I lived

[Chorus]
I, I did it all
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

[Outro]
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Oh
Oh
