(Billy Mann/Gary Haase)

I've slept under the sun,
And I've tasted the rain, cold rain
I've loved more than once
And I've stared down the face of pain
But look at me
I'm still standing here today

Chorus:
I'm alive, yeah, I'm alive
I'd rather walk this winding road and let love take a leap of faith
Than be alone
Yeah, I'm alive
Life is stronger, and more powerful, and beautiful than ever

Yesterday I was a fool
But in our yesterdays we are all fools
Watched the news in disbelief
Prayed for love to bring relief
Giving up is always easier than standing up to fight
…but baby

Chorus

Everybody gets scared a little
Everybody gets tired a little
Everybody feels low
Everybody feels high
When life is a journey, take a deep breath and enjoy the ride, enjoy the ride
All on borrowed time, I'm alive, look around baby
I'd rather take a leap of faith than be alone, yeah I'm alive,
Life is stronger, and more powerful, beautiful than ever.

Chorus
