Alfie Boe – Being Alive lyrics

Somebod hold me too close
Somebody hurt me too deep
Somebody sit in my chair
And ruin my sleep
And make me aware of
Being alive... Being alive

Somebody need me too much
Somebody know me too well
Somebody pull me up short
And put me through hell
And give me support for being alive
Being alive

Make me alive, make me confused
Mock me with praise, let me be used
Vary my days, but alone is alone,
Not alive!

Somebody crowd me with love
Somebody force me to care
Somebody make me come through
I'll always be there,
Frightened as you,
To help us survive being alive
Being alive
Being alive

    This song haunts me. Alfie's voice connects with my heart and soul. His passion for performing is contagious so that I need to hear him sing, and have his old and new cds playing as I work about my home all day long. His high notes are so absolutely clear and perfect that I have to stop what I'm doing and just listen, giving thanks that.
    That he is willing and driven to share his talent with all of us.
    His new album "alfie" arrived yesterday and I listened with my heart and soul.
    Come to pittsburgh, pa on your you. S. Tour next year alfie, and make us richer for just having you here.
