I'm Alive

Album: Pick Me Up Off The Floor (2020)
  • Just sit and wait
    Don't move, just hesitate
    You can hope and pray
    You can moan
    Maybe things will change

    You feel your soul
    Get hollowed out
    While the world implodes
    You just live without

    She walks, she runs
    She fights, almost as one
    And finds her voice
    She'll march
    She has no choice

    She's crushed by thoughts
    At night of men
    Who want her rights
    And usually win

    But she's alive
    Oh, she's alive
    She's alive
    Oh, she's alive

    He screams, he shouts
    The heads on the TV bow
    They take the bait
    They mirror waves of hate

    They break down walls
    To free their sins
    And then their hearts
    Come caving in

    Oh I watch, I think
    I dance and sometimes I drink
    I sing my songs
    I'll hope someone sings along

    If I should break
    My silent streak
    Will knives come out
    To cut my cheek?

    Oh, I'm alive, yes I'm alive
    But I'm alive, oh, I'm alive
    But I'm alive, oh, I'm alive
    Yes, I'm alive, yes, I'm alive

    I care a lot
    I know the things I'm not
    It's alright, it's okay
    And it's not
    Maybe things will change Writer/s: Jeff Tweedy, Norah Jones
