David Archuleta - Numb Lyrics

I think I'll take a second chance
I won't be passing by these waters again
Wanna feel redemption's hand
And see this life only for what it, what it is
I know the river's not too wide
Had to see it for myself with my own eyes
Something out there's on my side
It's not my place to question why

Everybody needs time away
To wake up with the sun on their face
I'm not there yet but I know

I don't wanna feel numb
Falling over all of my shadows
Yeah I'm all done
'Cause none of that ever really mattered
It hurts to live so wide awake, oh
But it's a chance I can take
I won't run run run
'Cause I don't wanna feel numb

So deep inside these hills I run
To a place where I can see 'til kingdom come
See the days one by one
And love this life only for what it, what it is
I hear the whispers in the stars
The words that tell us more of who we are
Someone out there's not that far
Everything I need is here now

Everybody needs time away
To wake up with the sun on their face
I'm not there yet but i know

That I don't wanna feel numb
Falling over all of my shadows
Yeah I'm all done
'Cause none of that ever really mattered
It hurts to live so wide awake, oh
But it's a chance I can take
I won't run run run
'Cause I don't wanna feel numb

A tidal wave brought to life
Rushing over every doubt of mine
Open soul in an open sky
Everything, everything is right

I don't wanna feel numb
Falling over all of my shadows
Yeah I'm all done
'Cause none of that ever really mattered
It hurts to live so wide awake, oh
But it's a chance I can take
I won't run run run, yeah
And no, I won't run run run
'Cause I don't wanna feel numb
'Cause I don't wanna feel numb
'Cause I don't wanna feel numb

    I struggle with self care. This song reminds me of how important and soul saving self care is, and what a massive role nature plays in it.

  12. Makay Olsen

    Its obvious that this song is about overcoming depression. I believe that David has a past with depression and anxiety. I feel like I can personally relate to that. This song has a perfect mix of a sad yet a happy motivational twist. Very nice.

    So beautiful

  19. kyle leigh

    I'm a depressed person and I hated the feelings of the extreme happiness to extreme sadness. So I made myself feel numb for the past 4yrs. I dont want to feel numb anymore. I'm coming back to life slowly. Satan u can't trick me into thinking feeling numb is okay cuz u only sink slowly into darkness if u are numb.

    Miracles work against depression, time, and space...It doesn't matter how long you've been hurting, He can ALWAYS heal you.

  72. The Shortfellows - speak softly and play the piano

    No one wants to feel "numb," but (if we do our best), miracles are real (and so is His ever-abounding love). We can feel it in our hearts every day-- no one is exempt. You just have to ALWAYS do your best:)

  75. Tammy Leeder Whitaker

    Such a beautiful song David!!! I love the Forest. I went deep into Nature with God. Time away with God only to heal. I was hurting so bad for years. God is my rock. Thank you Jesus for always being my saving grace. I never will lose my Faith . Thank you Jesus 🙏🌹Thank you for your Music. I listen to you so much

  76. The Shortfellows - speak softly and play the piano

    Sorry for writing a lot. I don't have any other social media accounts. I'm basically just going around commenting on every song that ever helped me get through a hard time. There's so many of them. Music has so much power to uplift.

  77. The Shortfellows - speak softly and play the piano

    I still don't understand how "Shine a Light" ever came into being! It just goes to show, sometimes no one can tell what you're going through (if all you're ever focused on is serving and selflessness).

  78. The Shortfellows - speak softly and play the piano

    "It hurts to live so wide awake, oh/But it's a chance I can take..." There was a time in my life when, even though I valued my life, I didn't think I had it in me to wait for the hard time to pass. It was SOOOO scary. But I'm stronger now. Now I'm "made out of titanium." That's what my mom calls it:) It's freeing to be made out of metal, but it can also make you feel more isolated. Trauma is real. I found myself telling my life's story to a therapist the other day, then came out of it all feeling "human again." ("When we're nick-knacks and what-nots no more..." Why waste words, when you can say it all in a Disney song?:) Still, it has a way of creeping back when you want it the least. I've learned it doesn't define me, though. The power of prayer can break through any concrete ceiling and lift you out of the tunnel.

  79. The Shortfellows - speak softly and play the piano

    Thank you for being so honest. No one wants to feel numb. No one wants to feel isolated or in constant physical or emotional turmoil. But He has felt every bit of it, and there's always a purpose. Miracles are real and so is joy. There is too much negativity in this world. I really don't understand people whose sole focus in life is to get attention, instead of chasing after their purpose. His love is real. There are some things we just don't understand, but one day they'll be explained. Faith can move mountains. Our life on earth is a mere sliver of our eternal story. I have to remember this sometimes, because I've had a debilitating mental health condition that is only just now in the light. No one knew what I was going through; I kept it all inside. No one wants to feel vulnerable, yet no one wants to feel pitied. No one wants to lose their childhood either, something which I can't remember that well. The harder the trial, the more you can be assured that God trusts you and come to realize strength you never knew you had.

  80. Tammy Leeder Whitaker

    The Sun upon my face.🙏🌹☀️

  81. The Shortfellows - speak softly and play the piano

    So powerful. I like the part where everything changes, and you feel like your flying. I feel like it's saying that you always have a say, no matter how hard things get, because we're never given trials that are too hard for us to bear. I don't want to feel numb. I just want to grow. This song is so introspective.

  82. Jay Bih

    love you


    There is something supernatural and DIVINE in this video clip that very few people will be able to see. Pay attention to something passing behind the trees, a figure, in the form of a man, seems to have wings, an angel, almost invisible, as if it were an image of a man out of focus. at this time (3:10 / 3: 15). I love this video


    Tem algo sobrenatural e DIVINO nesse video clip que pouquíssimas pessoas conseguirão ver. Preste atenção em algo passando la atrás entre as árvores, um vulto , em forma de homem, parece ate ter asas, um anjo, quase invisível, como se fosse uma imagem de homem desfocado. nesse tempo ( 3:10 /3:15). eu amo esse video
