I Lived by OneRepublic is featured in Dreams Come True, the thirteenth and final episode of Season Six. It's sung by the Cast of Glee with solos from Artie, Blaine, Kurt, Mercedes, Rachel, Roderick, Sam, and Will.

It's the final number of the series. In Fall 2020, Sue Sylvester, now the Vice President of the United States, comes back to McKinley with Becky Jackson and invites Will, Burt Hummel, Carole Hudson-Hummel, Emma Pillsbury, Principal Figgins, Sheldon Beiste, and Terri Del Monico, who later joins hesitantly, to a rededication of The Auditorium for Finn, renaming it as "Finn Hudson Auditorium". Then, Sue introduces the New Directions and sits in the front row with Becky, as the curtain opens and shows Tina, Artie, Sam, and Quinn on the stage as Will joins in. Later, Rachel, Mercedes, Kurt, and Blaine walk in to the stage and sings in. Roderick, Mason, Madison, Jane, Alistair, Spencer and Sugar join at the chorus along with Mike and Matt Rutherford who both reunited for the first time since Season One, sharing a dance routine. At the song bridge, Brittany, Santana, Puck, Kitty, Lauren Zizes, Dave Karofsky, and Jake enter the auditorium and sings in. Joe, Ryder, and Unique also show up from the back of the auditorium stage. Jesse is also seen cuddling with Rachel throughout the song. Later, the adults get up to the stage, joining them. Terri is seen hugging Will when Emma notices them in an uncomfortable face. Most of the former main and recurring members of New Directions (excluding Marley, Myron and Rory) join to sing and celebrate Glee. The song ends when Becky and Sue get to the stage and join everyone putting their heads down to take their final bow as the lights turn off and the scene cuts to the screen zooming out from the picture of them in the auditorium along with Finn and Lillian's plaques. The sounds of the cast cheering and laughing is heard and with that the screen fades to black, marking the end of Glee.

Will:
Hope when you take that jump
You don't feel the fall

Hope when the water rises
You built a wall

Hope when the crowd screams out
They're screaming your name

Artie with Sam:
Hope if everybody runs
You choose to stay

And I hope that you don't suffer
But take the pain

Blaine with Kurt:
Hope when the moment comes
You'll say

Roderick with Rachel and the Cast of Glee:

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

Sam:
Hope that you spend your days
But they all add up

Mercedes and Sam:
Ooh
And when that sun goes down
Hope you raise your cup
Ooh

I wish that I could witness
All your joy and all your pain

Blaine and Kurt:
But until my moment comes
I'll say

Trivia

  • This is the last musical number of the series. Therefore, it's also:
  • J.J. Totah (Myron) is part of this performance as he was seen at its filming, but he is not seen at all when the song was performed.
    • It could be stated that it would be impossible for him to look as if he were 18 years old, since this song is performed 5 years later after New Directions' victory at the 2015 Nationals.
  • Marley and Rory are the only two alive former members (who appeared in more than one episode) who do not participate in this number, the reason being Damian McGinty was out of the state, while Melissa Benoist was filming Supergirl.
    • With this, Marley is the only alive former main character that is absent during the performance, and the episode.
  • Skylar and the Warblers are absent, presumably because their roles in the finale were to fill the required number of membership for the glee club.
  • Though featured in the performance, no member of the second generation (2012-2013; Season Four-Five) of New Directions sings in the song.
  • Becky is the only character who participates in this number who doesn't wear red and white themed clothes.
  • The last three cast members who show up in the performance are all from The Glee Project (Joe, Ryder, and Unique). The only The Glee Project contestant (who portrayed a character that was a member of New Directions) that wasn't present is Damian McGinty (Rory).
  • This song made it to #45 on the U.S. iTunes charts, making it the highest song to chart since early Season Five.
  • With this being the last song of the series and On My Own in Pilot being the first ever released song, Rachel sang on both the first and last released song of the series.
  • This song is featured in the Glee Series Finale event for the Glee Forever! app.

Errors

  • Despite being present both during the filming and performance of I Lived, Ryder is nowhere to be found during the "final bow" part of the performance.
