Sia – Alive (new video)

Sia released the music video for the first single from her new album “This is acting”.
The clip for “Alive”, directed by Daniel Askill and Sia, features a young child, Mahiro Takano from Japan, practicing martial arts while wearing the black-and-white wig that’s come to be associated with Sia’s latest project.
Like the video for “Chandelier”, Sia uses a proxy performer and doesn’t appear in the music video at all.
“Alive” was originally written for Adele, and Sia has said that the track was written from the British singer’s perspective, which is in keeping with the rest of “This is acting”. It’s comprised fully of songs intended for other artists.

Lyrics:

I was born in a thunderstorm
I grew up overnight
I played alone
I’m playing on my own
I survived

Hey
I wanted everything I never had
Like the love that comes with light
I wore envy and I hated that
But I survived

I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived

I’m still breathing [4x] I’m alive [4x]

I found solace in the strangest place
Way in the back of my mind
I saw my life in a stranger’s face
And it was mine

I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived

I’m still breathing [4x] I’m alive [4x]

You took it all, but I’m still breathing [8x]

I have made every single mistake
That you could ever possibly make
I took and I took and I took what you gave
But you never noticed that I was in pain
I knew what I wanted; I went out and got it
Did all the things that you said that I wouldn’t
I told you that I would never be forgotten
And all in spite of you

And I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m alive (You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive (You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive (You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive

I’m alive [4x]
