​I Survived

This song is by Midge Ure and appears on the album Fragile (2014).

I'll count the things that matter
As I gaze across an empty sky
Writing names and lists in letters

Upon the papers in my hand
And I was lost and I was scared
Completely unprepared
For the war I'd just been through
And I would shade the light from on my eyes
Bowed my head until I'd realised
That I'd survived
I'd survived

Watch the hands move slowly
Over numbers and blank faces
As the shadows slide across my walls
See my one time friend and enemy
Smile in his defeat
I'll watch him fall
And I was dead and I was gone
With no strength to carry on
As I sipped another sip away
Then I raised my hands up to the skies
And I closed my eyes and realised
I survived
I survived
I survived

Simple sinner
Simple man
Keep it and hold it white you can, you can.
