Daniel Lemma – Alive lyrics
Well the time is right, that's what the mighty Duke says
And he lights his pipe with a grin
And the moon so bright, like a neon light
Shines on me & my friend
You can sense the new day, not far away
Like a silent bubble ready to burst
But right here, right now, with 'em crickets lullabies
It's so good to see what it's worth
Feel alive, feel alive, feel alive

It may bring me down in a terrible mood
Waist-deep down in the mud
Put a load on my shoulder, like a five ton boulder
And I can't shake it off like I should
Adversities may line up, can't find a reason to smile
All you wanna do is give up, sit right down and cry
But on the positive side, I'm feeling alive
Listening to the Son's of Thunder
Sanctified music from an up-lit hill
Tonight I can't go under
The night comes down on Duke's verandah
And everything, everything is alright

I believe in love like a burning fire
Glowing through my soul
Burning down every distance
So the divided can come to a whole
And if the world don't care for dreamers
That's the odds we'll have to stand
But tonight I ain't gon' worry
Just gon' sit right here with my friend
And feel alive, feel alive, feel alive

It was such a great night, I was full of delight
Glowing just like the Duke's pipe
Trombones sounding off the hillside
And that yellow moon so bright
The night came down on Duke's verandah
And everything, everything was alright
