Video Premiere: OneRepublic - I Lived

OneRepublic returns with an uplifting visual for their new single "I Lived", taken from the pop rock band's chart-topping third studio album 'Native', released on March 26, 2013 through Mosley Music and Interscope Records. The inspirational song was written by OneRepublic's frontman Ryan Tedder together with Noel Zancanella.

The Noble Jones-directed music video features a touching story of a 15-year-old boy named Brian who stays physically active and tries to live his life like a normal teenager despite his ongoing battle with cystic fibrosis. The emotional clip is interspersed with close-up footage of Ryan Tedder performing the song in a dark setting.

Lyrics to I Lived by OneRepublic

[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
