Iknow how it feels to Survive by Jeff & Sherry Easter

Been afraid, been confused,
Doubted everything that I thought that I knew,
But I've felt peace, and I've been loved,
Got back all my faith thanking God above.

'cause I know how it feels to look out of a valley,
How it feels to breathe the air that gives me life,
I know the silence that comes with trusting and believing,
And the darkness when the shadows hide the light;
I know how it feels to survive.

Been alone, felt betrayed,
Didn't know if I could stand another day;
But I've found joy, and I had faith,
And know the strength that gets me through one more day;

'cause I know how it feels to look out of a valley,
How it feels to breathe the air that gives me life,
I know the silence that comes with trusting and believing,
And the darkness when the shadows hide the light;
I know how it feels to survive.

Now I live with eyes wide open,
And my heart is filled with gratitude,
'cause I know everything I have is only borrowed,
And by the grace of God I know I'll make it through.

'cause I know how it feels to look out of a valley,
How it feels to breathe the air that gives me life,
I know the silence that comes with trusting and believing,
And the darkness when the shadows hide the light;
I know how it feels to survive.

By the way, here's the "story behind the song" by Sheri Easter, as written on their official Web site (which is definitely worth a visit, and be sure to pick up a copy of the "Eyes Wide Open" CD):

Recently, I celebrated my 4th year of being cancer free from breast cancer. It created a day full of reflection, gratitude, and celebration. There is nothing like living with eyes wide open! Nothing like living with perspective, and being able to always see the good in every moment of life.

Back in the spring, I began writing a song for our new project, and a line from the song became the project's title Eyes Wide Open. Our last project dealt with faith, hope and trust even when life is hard. This project deals with celebration and gratitude AFTER life has left its scars.

Now I live with eyes wide open, and my heart is filled with gratitude.

I know everything I have is only borrowed, and by the grace of God, I know I'll make it through.

Cause I know how it feels to walk out of a valley, and how it feels to breathe the air that gives me life.

I know the silence that comes with trusting and believing and the darkness when the shadows hide the light.

Yea, I know how it feels to survive.
