Officially Alive

Album: Wheelhouse (2013)
  • So you ruffled some feathers, yeah, you've done it now
    Turned the tables in the temple clean upside down
    You're out on a ledge and one thing's for sure
    When you've got 'em all wishin' you'd never been born

    Congratulations, you are officially alive
    It's confirmation you are officially alive

    It's not the double kick of an ultrasound
    Or a piece of paper on file downtown
    It takes more than a beat and a breath and a name
    It's when you're so in love and so in pain

    Congratulations, you are officially alive
    Here's affirmation, you are officially alive

    Yeah, it's a tragedy to go through history and simply just exist
    You're gonna realize how quick it flies by and everything you missed
    And suddenly you're standing there in scrubs
    Love has found new flesh and blood
    It's a feeling you weren't ready for
    When you're lookin' in eyes that look like yours

    Congratulations, you are officially alive
    This is creation, you are officially alive
    You are officially alive
    Congratulations, you are officially alive
    This is creation, you are officially alive
    You are officially alive Writer/s: BRAD PAISLEY
