Words and Music by Stephen Stills and Michael Stergis
When you know there's someone
You can talk to
And she's waiting by the door
When you get home
With her hand she'll caress
Away your worries
You are alive
I hope you know
That you're alive
When you're waiting for her standing
By the doorway
And your heart is laughing as
She turns the key
Here it comes again, always
The same feeling
You are alive
And so is she
Chorus
Do you know
What life would be without her?
Do you know
What loneliness can be?
You'll die by yourself
Only with someone else-why?
When it's all a game and
There is no pleasure
And you're just like all the rest
Cannot see
And you're feeling like there's
No more point in searching
Are you alive?
How could it be
Are you alive?
I'd like to see
If you're alive.
