Roy Orbison – Only Alive lyrics

When you happened by, my open eyes could see
My sleeping hands awoke and almost reached
I was full of life, till you walked on by
Then I went right back to feeling sad and lonely
And only alive

For a moment my heart began to beat
My puppet legs responded to your strings
And my shuffling feet started stepping high
Then I went right back to feeling sad and lonely
And only alive

For all the things worth living for
Left me for someone new
And all of those things I lost
I was left condemned to a lonely life
Then I went right back to feeling sad and lonely
And only alive
