"Son," she said
"Have I got a little story for you
What you thought was your daddy
Was nothin' but a"

"While you were sittin'
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
Hey, oh

Oh, she walks slowly
Across a young man's room
She said, "I'm ready for you"

"I can't remember anything
To this very day
'Cept the look, the look
Oh, you know where
Now I can't see, I just stare"

I, I'm still alive
Hey I, but, I'm still alive
Hey I, boy, I'm still alive
Hey I, I'm still alive, yeah
Ooh yeah, yeah yeah yeah, oh

"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
Who answers, who answers?

I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, but, I'm still alive
Yeah, I, ooh, I'm still alive
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
