Lisa Miskovsky – Still Alive

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 12:34 am by LynxLee


Tonight I’ve been checking out some Parkour, or FreeRunning online.

Those are exactly the kind of things I wanted to do when I was young; always dropping off higher grounds, climbing trees, running and jumping off things, floating fast from running too fast and so on.

Believe it or not, I used to always run back home from my school bus running and not stopping for breath jumping over things, flipping my feet on platforms to have a higher bounce and so on. Of course, I’m not as extreme to run on rooftops and so on.

Update: On a side note, is it me; or does the first 10 seconds of this song sounded like Westlife’s Us Against The World?

This video I found off YouTube has entertained me greatly and I encourage you to have a good look. It looks like fun, and very artistic:
TEMPEST FREERUNNING ACADEMY – GYM VIDEO

Anyhow, I’m just installing some linux distros on my laptop and reading some system admin and perl, python programming when I decided all of a sudden to Google out Parkour. (I’m still very much entertained by Casino Royale’s 10 minute opening) Then some videos lead me to “Mirror’s Edge”, a game with Parkour in the gameplay for Xbox and so on. Then I saw this video.. Mirror’s Edge Theme Song – Still Alive(Music Video). It lead me to this track and music video here hosted by EA in YouTube. More on the Swedish Musician, Lisa Miskovsky.

This track is somewhat like the Cranberries and Leona Lewis combined. Simply loved it!

It’s been roughly 10 days since my wedding and I’m now looking forward to almost everything! Can’t feel more complete than to know everything is on track and anything is possible. =D

Quoting this song’s lyrics, ” I’m still alive, I’m still alive, I can’t apologize, no..”

Gotta love life you chose and you made. Keep making them and keep chasing them.

So silent
No violence
But inside my head
So loud and clear

You’re screaming
You’re screaming
Cover up with a smile I’ve learned to fear

Just sunshine
And blue sky
Is this all we get
For living here

Come fire
Come fire
Let it burn and love come racing through

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I can’t apologize no

I have changed
I have changed
Just like you
Just like youFor how long
For how long
Must I wait
I know there’s something wrongYour concrete heart isn’t beating
And you tried to
Make it come aliveNo shadows
Just red lights
Now I’m here to rescue you

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I can’t apologize no

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I can’t apologize no

So silent
No violence
But inside my head
So loud and clear

You’re screaming
You’re screaming
Cover up with a smile I’ve learned to fear

Just sunshine
And blue sky
Is this all we get
For living here

Come fire
Come fire
Let it burn and love come racing through

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I can’t apologize no

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I can’t apologize no

I’ve learnt to lose
I’ve learnt to win
I turn my face against the wind

I will move fast
I will move slow
Take me where I have to go

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I can’t apologize no
