Bamboo – Alive lyrics

Son, she said, have I got a little story for you
What you thought was your daddy was only just a
While you were sleepin' home alone at age thirteen
Your real daddy was dyin'

Sorry you didn't see him,
But I'm glad we talked

Oh I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, oh, I'm still alive

Oh, she walks slowly, across a young man's room
She says I'm ready
I can't remember anything to this very day
Except the look, the look

Oh, you know where, now I can't see, I just stare

[Repeat Chorus]

Is something wrong, she said
Well of course there is
You're still alive, she said
Oh, and do I deserve to be
Is that the question
And if so, if so, if so, who answers

[Repeat Chorus]

I'm still alive
