Lyrics by: glen phillips

Soft between these sheets I shiver
I move in time
My thoughts collide and body whispers
Am I alive

This place will speak it's language to me
I slip inside
A breath escapes and I fly with it
I'm so alive

I'm alive (3x)

Moving in waves
Caught in a slow landslide
Sleeping still but so alive


I'm alive (3x)

Moving in waves
Caught in a slow landslide
Sleeping still but so alive

Breathing in waves
Pulling away, rising
Running scared but so alive

(plus mystery lyrics not on the recording:)
I see you on a road I travel
I move in time
The earth forgives my trespass
And I'm alive...
